Latest Finds - Jobling & unknown Victorian vase
« on: August 06, 2006, 01:30:31 PM »
I've just posted some pictures of my two latest acquisitions; first of all, a magnificent Jobling two handled rose vase:

Secondly a lovely little late Victorian satin glass vase, decorated with enamels and gilding. Whilst it's outside my usual area of interest I thought it was such an attractive piece (& at such an attractive price!) that I had to buy it.

I'd like to ask if anyone has any information regarding who might have made it. Personally I'm leaning towards Bohemia and thinking possibly Harrach but I have little basis for this and welcome any further suggestions.

It's quite heavy for its size and nicely finished. The interior is in opaque white glass, cased in a graduated ruby layer. The foot has been ground & polished & is slightly concave with a number '5' painted on in enamel. At first sight the top rim looks fire polished but closer inspection reveals it to have been ground to give a rounded profile. This certainly looks original as there are traces of gilding to the upper surface. Height is about 6 3/4 inches.

Have you explored the realm of Peachblow for that vase? It sure looks like it to me. There's several companies that did guilded designs but the presense of a ground base would lead me in an italian direction.

Thanks Helen,

Not sure about my vase being Peachblow, I know some dealers now use it as a generic term, but from what I can gather from Johanna Billings' article on the Glass Museum Online I feel it is more conventional satin glass. http://www.glass.co.nz/peachblow.htm

The only Italian wares I know of in this stye tend to be more modern reproductions, while this is definitely an early piece. Personally I am still thinking Bohemia, though I have also seen similar wares attributed to British firms.
