Uranium ? green vase ID: Sowerby F 2583 'Celery Vase'
« on: September 11, 2005, 01:11:13 PM »
Uranium (I think) vase (I must get a blacklight!) - glows madly under fluorescent light and sunlight.  No maker's marks. Pressed glass - four part mould. 7" tall. 5" top diameter. Has four squared off feet. Does anyone recognise it please?

Anne, it is Sowerby's Number 2583 - called a "Celery Vase" (that euphemistic term  :wink: )

Yours is F 2583. Two other shapes (flared points up and down) were also made. Also supplied with holder and plinth.

Incidentally, our second Sowerby CD-ROM is ready (covers the 1920s through to the 1960s). It includes illustrations of this item in the original Sowerby catalogues. I'll post full details tomorrow.

Wonderful! Thanks Glen, I really appreciate your help with this one. It's a super looking vase, even without the flower holder and plinth.

PS I've added your Sowerby CD's to my "want for my birthday" list... just hope OH is watching the list! :lol:

PPS I will add your Sowerby titles to the Glassoholic book list as well. (The Carnival ones are already there.)  8)

Thanks Anne - I'm glad I could help. I'm playing catch-up here (lots of glass to put away - as we took it with us to the Convention for our seminar). But I sneaked away from the chores to have a quick look at the Glass Board and saw your message.

My thanks - and as I currently have my brain in gear and (hopefully) all faculties functioning, may I both compliment and thank you for that excellent feature and all your hard work.

I think it's going to be a never-ending work-in-progress Glen. Every day I seem to find new glass sites so keep adding them in batches. It's amazing how many sites about glass there are out there!  :D

I have quite a collectionof these celery vases by Sowerby. Does anyone know if they are of any value?

Everything has a value to someone I guess. It just depends if someone wants what you have. I paid £1.50 for mine I think.

Hi Anne

£1.50. not very inspiring, not that I would get rid of any of them. The most I have paid was on ebay for £6.99. I should really stop buying them, they are becoming a bit of an obsession. Thanks for reply.

Adding a pic of the same vase in amber for reference. Yesterday I saw, but didn't buy, the same vase in clear glass. The green is far nicer than the clear.
