Hello Fellow Glassy Types!

This vase is a bit odd (to me) as it makes me think of a carnival glass vase without the marigold or blue, etc.  The 'leaves' at the top have the appearance of having been cut with pinking shears.

It's 11" tall.  I would really like to know what era and, if you know or would like to guess, who made it.

Thanks in advance,
Stu.

Hi Stu, many designs made in carnival glass were also made in un-carnivalised glass so don't be surprised to see them :) I'm sure someone will be able to throw some light on it though.

Way back when I was new to this board and still exploring all the glass I seem to have collected over the years, I asked about a pink vase: http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,573.0.html and Glen (who knows more than a thing or two about carnival glass) told me, to my surprise, that it was made in carnival glass too: http://www.ddoty.com/sowerbydrape.html - like you, I'd never realised that the same pattern could be made in carnival and non-carnival.  :-[

Sowerby Drape shown here too:
http://www.geocities.com/carni_glass_uk_2000/SowerbyGroup.html

Many, many pressed glass patterns can be found in both iridised (Carnival) and non-iridised glass. As an example, all the Sowerby items shown on that page (url above) can be found in a variety of glass types (although there are very few Royal Swans in Carnival).

However, I don't recognise the vase discussed in this thread as a Carnival pattern.

Hello:

Your vase was made by the US Glass Company and the pattern is their 15086 Mirror Plate line. It was introduced in 1904.

Wow Sid!

The facts are lovely - thank you so much!  Very often I come to selling glass items but I always make sure I enjoy them for a few weeks first.  I will defo enjoy this more knowing where it came from.

Thanks to everyone else also.

Glen, I was hoping you'd come in on this topic  :kissy:  it's a shame this wasn't made in Carnival as I bet it would look super! (And I looked for the Drape on your website as I thought I'd seen it there but managed to miss it. :-[)
