Vaseline (uranium) Vase, Pearline, Wrythen stem: ID Please?
« on: March 09, 2006, 03:06:51 PM »
Hi,

Can anyone help ID this vase? Quite tall at 9" (23cm) and is vaseline/uranium glass with a flared, sawtooth fluted rim with pearline effect. The stem is wrythen twist.

 :shock: click to zoom :shock:

Here are two thumbnails showing the stem in detail and the rim

:shock:  :D Nice!  :wink:
I'd be interested to know if anyone can ID it  :shock:  First impulse is to attribute it to one of the Stourbridge houses, but second thoughts say not.  

Where's Dave / Mr Vaseline Glass?   :wink:

I also find the shape rather appealing - never seen the fluted rim in this shape, but I'm no expert at all! My only instinct is to suggest British, but that's too broad a spectrum.

I imagine Dave is still in bed though! :lol:

Without a marking, I think you are going to have to settle for "One of the glass houses in the Stourbridge region of England, Victorian era."

No way to tell for sure.

Dave: Thanks, I did appreciate it might be rather generic!

Pamela: Yes, excellent link - I'd agree the top does look very similar.

Bernard: Two photos of the base, but there's no maker's mark. No pontil mark either as the base has been applied to the stem – there's a little 'wrinkling' (straw marks?) right in the centre, other than that quite plain.

Base 1 : Base 2

Thanks for all your help :)

David — I agree with Dave in a general sense.    However "Stourbridge" would have to include other glassworks not actually located in or near Stourbridge, including Walsh, Kempton, and even Powell/Whitefriars.

As for dating, yes, "Victorian" in style, but not necessarily in date.   Many of these pieces are Edwardian or later, often dating from as late as the 1920s.
