Older Leaf Crown Vase - Ideas of Maker?
« on: September 10, 2005, 04:07:30 PM »
Hello Everyone!
Its been a while since I posted on this section, but I reacently received this vase from Australia. Aparently the seller inherited a very old store, with all its contents still inside. It had been closed since the 50's, but actually opened in the 1900's!
He sold this vase as "Glass Vase" on his auction, and he didnt have any idea of a maker. I just thought it was very unusual and looked really old so I bought it :D
Does anyone have any idea when and who made this?

It does look remarkably like a palm tree Javier with its textured trunk and leaves.  Haven't seen anything like it before :?  Ray's suggestion of a hat pin holder sounds good.

Ray's hatpin thing could be good.  How tall is it?

Hi Anne E. B.,
It is pretty tall actually. Measures 9 1/2" tall.

It looks vaguely like Kralik to me. That's just a punt.

Javier, it looks from the picture as if your hat-pin holder / vase might be slightly irridescent.  Is it?  

My first thought was that the leaves looked a little bit like some of the early Stourbridge crimped / 'Acanthus' leaves, but if it is iridescent I would have said it's not English.  

I hate to say 'Bohemian' or 'Czech' as I think that's just a cop-out  way of saying 'I don't know'  :?

So I'll just say ..... I don't know :oops:   :(   :roll:

But I do like it!  :wink:

No, the vase isn't Iridescent, wish it was!
Also has a pontil mark underneath, so it was not polished. Another thing I found interesting is that the top of the clear glass was not polished off either. It was left rough, and the "crown leaf" motif added to it. I do think it was done at the same time and isn't a "marriage." That is what makes me think it is a much older piece too.
Oh, and on the glass, it is just really really dirty, from years of being inside the store. I am cleaning it now and looks really clear.

For a signature, I really havent found one. Would you think it is a stamp-like signature I should be looking for? I have been trying to feel with my fingers in case it is etched or stamped, but nothing so far.

Hi Everyone,
Just letting you know i got an email from an appraiser saying she had seen the piece before, but had no history on it. She guessed the vase could be English from the 1920's. Also she said she had only seen the piece in clear glass, not in any color. I think that could be a very good thing :)
