Elegant Art Nouveau Vase
« on: April 06, 2014, 10:32:28 AM »
Most likely by Welz.
Described as 'late 1800s' by the seller, I'm not sure its that old, I would guess anywhere from then up to the '20s,
This vase, although art nouveau in style, has a newer 'feel' to it than the Deco style vase next to it, shouldn't that be the other way around? :-S
I'm not a glass expert, just a glass lover, particularly interested in Victorian glass:)
Thank you

I think these are both late 1800s, much more Victorian than any other style IMHO

Thanks Lustrestone.
I hoped they would be Victorian, so I'm very happy.
I must admit they both look to be early. I think the pointy vase being sold as 'art deco' threw me. It does have an Art Deco look to it but if its Victorian would pre date that by quite a bit. Maybe they're at the very beginnings of the nouveau/deco styles, which i find fascinating:)
