possible unusual colour for 'bone vase'
« on: December 01, 2010, 07:58:22 PM »
Appreciate this is a common enough design, but looking through my few books I can't find an illustrated example showing a coloured base and clear stem - those that I can see have this combination reversed.    Height is something like 295mm/11.5/8" - and unfortunately there remains a little water staining even after cleaning.   Can't recall now what the base colour was in daylight, but under electric light it shows as a deep and very strong violet.    Whilst the flat base has a quality smooth finish, the outer rim where it joins the rest of the base has a very 'seconds' look.   Is this clear stem with coloured base unusual, or are there shed loads of them around, and I just haven't seen one.  Apart from the original Danish design, think they were only every produced in Sweden (although by several factories).      Thanks for looking. :)

thanks to both of you  -  and so I guess not quite the rarity I at first thought.             Yes, I agree with you rosie, mine does look better with the bubbles. :)

......and I believe yours is a rarity Paul,  yours is the only other clear glass 'trumpet' I have seen. It is sometimes known as a bud vase or a Jack in the Pulpit vase as well as Bone vase,  so worth looking with these names as well.
With a single bloom in,  I think the clear trumpet would show the flower off to better effect,  whilst the coloured ones would compete for attention....aesthetically speaking.

thanks again rosie - although I will disagree with you that an alternative name for these swung bone vases is jip.     I have always understood that for a piece to qualify as a jip the rim must arranged in a very specifically symmetrical style  i.e.  the lobes should be.....lowest at the front, with the sides equal in height but higher than the front  -  and finally the single lobe at the rear is to be higher again.   I think we should describe these Swedish pieces simply as 'irregular, pulled rims'.      However, I do think that jip vases are one of the most iconic shapes in the world of glass - and if I win the lottery, I shall be at Sotheby's with my 'paddle' and will corner the market in 'Favrille' iridescent examples.     And thanks for your faith that my jip is  a rarity. :)

Gosh, a glass botany lesson and all for free......thank you Paul :-*.....I will try to remember all that info,  but in the meantime, I think I should explain that what I really meant was that your Bone vase is sometimes referred to as a Jack in the Pulpit (jip) or bud vase, (albeit erroneously!) and so when searching for matches, it helps to look in all those categories.....but I expect you knew all that!! :ooh:

yes, you may be correct rosie  -  wasn't there a Readers Digest slogan once that said something like ...'It pays to increase you word power/knowledge'........or some such.   So yes, if you were looking for these things then spreading your net wider would give greater results, possibly.    But of course this 'over-generalizing is really 'the thin end of the wedge' - and jip pieces are, of course, supposed to be copying the actual flower/plant thingy - so I'm sorry but I really can't subscribe to this kind of abuse of correct terminology ;).   
but I expect you knew all that!! -  now you're just flattering me.  In fact, as I have discovered since frequenting the GMB, I have discovered that I know much less than I thought.
However, what makes me smile is this rather erotic euphemism re the use of the appellation 'bone vase'. >:D    It may be that to give a name to a thing does not necessarily define it, and in fact it might just do the reverse >:D

I 'may be correct'....surely Paul you realise that I am correct in this contect :angel:.....and yes it does 'Pay to Improve Your Word Power' and thanks to Readers Digest for all the enlightening it has given over the years!! ( We always had a copy in the toilet....Dad used to call them 'Bronco Books'.  It was years before I realised the connection with toilets, and assumed he was referring to the fact thet there were a lot of Americanisms in it and they rode their Broncos in the rodeo!!)

Paul, I really don't know what you mean :o  I am just a simple nurse. I can cope with a botany lesson,  but biology is beyond me! :srn:

I am, throughout all this friendly banter, making a serious endeavour to find more 'Bone' vases with clear trumpets, and I have been known to be quite tenacious. :hi:

I have seen one of these with a red base & a totally clear one in the past. But the coloured stemed ones are 10 a penny at carboot sales!
