Sevres Vase
« on: February 25, 2018, 07:55:49 PM »
Can anybody help me find out more about this  Sevres vase which I purchased recently. Its stands 39cms in height and weighs  3036grms, The colour is pale amber in daylight and an apple green in artificial light.  Makers name is etched to base. I assume it to be from the sixties .
Thanks

just possibly this piece is trichroic - as opposed to neodymium for example which is dichroic.            Some trichroic pieces do apparently show up as quite bright green under fluorescent light, and the change in colour in daylight might suggest the presence of selenium.
Have a look at this ...............    GlassyEye.com -  where there's information about both types of glass.                Regret I've no idea as to the date of this piece.

Does it have an opening at the top? If not perhaps a lamp base.

Seems to be made from so called "Heliolite" glass -- I recently posted a pair of Murano dogs, one in Neodymium (colour change from pink to blue), the other in Heliolite glass (colour change from amber to acid green)

thanks Michael - expect you know far more than me about such things. :)

Hi John, It does have an opening at the top but Im not sure where the cable would go. It was my first thought that it could be lamp base. But the shallowness of the actual well of the vase made me  think otherwise. I have included a picture of the top.
Thanks for you interest.

any chance of posting your pics to size 400 x 600 pixels so they enlarge sufficiently to see the piece in question please?
Maybe it is an oil lamp base - was that what you meant John?

Thanks

No an electric lamp m, it is not unusual to find lamps from the 50s and earlier that have cords that just hang down from the fitting, instead of running through the vessel via a small hole in the base.
