Hi all, I exchanged, for this lovely elegant Emerald Green Crystal Bud Vase over the weekend from a friend who could not wait to dangle it in front of my face, yes! I know..........'dangle'
It was clear I was not going to resist and with mixed excitement and desperation for it's safety as the reflection of moving natural light had me hypnotised, without hesitation I completed the transaction.
Unable to extract information regarding this vase from my research, other than a recent positive I.D on a previous posting (http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,48740.msg274780.html#msg274780
), that has led me to conclude that this vase is a Galliano Ferro vase.
Clear similarities within the patternization is apparent, however, unable to find this particular vase. The vase appears to be made out of two sections or extra layered to the lower section of the vase during the making. The lower section is thicker and uneven, slightly curved rim can be felt around the circumference of the vase (3/4 of the way down), which suggest that this may have occurred during the initial stages of processing. The height of the vase is 37.5cm, hexagonal and irregular curved shape base approx. 8cm at widest point. From the base centre to the edge sits flat on a levelled surface and from the outer edge tapers upwards/outwards approx. 3cm high were it is part of the beginning of the bullseye design section. Around the circumference of the tapered edge there are five slightly concaved surfaces which also is smooth and curved around the edges. This may not be clear on the pictures taken, but hopefully from the information provided will assist those within this field for identification. Any help, gratefully appreciated!
