Painted crackle glass pitcher
« on: December 30, 2005, 10:37:48 PM »
I have a painted crackle glass vase that is the color of the tall vase attached, but the shape of the blue one attached.  The painting is similar, water birds and flowers.  I sense it is not an inexpensive piece, my Aunt got it as a wedding present in the early 1900's.  Any idea of value?  Interest?

I wonder if this might be Moser, as the Great Glass photo page shows a similar vase, but with fish in weeds.

But as for value I'm afraid that I have no idea.

What is "the Great Glass photo page"?

Are ALL the members of this list in Europe (or out of the U.S.)?

Hi Karen, here is the link to the Moser vases on the site, its near the bottom, number 7444. You can also use this link to visit the rest of the site if you select the "Home Page" tab at the top of the page.

Hope this helps,

I think it's pictured in one of the Moser books. I have a nearly identical one in cranberry with a different bird on either side.

Note how the handle gets bigger before it's attched to the body at the top. It's the same on yours, mine and the one in the book.

Edit to add: I was referring to the blue one.

Think it's worth enough to consign it?

It's identified as Moser at this site. In fact it's the exact same picture you posted.

Thanks for the responses.  The picture I posted is one I copied from another site.  In the link RH sent I see that it's identified as being only 5 1/2" tall.  Mine is a regular size pitcher.  I don't have a functional digital camera, but the painting is exactly the same as the blue one, only the color is the same as the straight sided one.
