A Manchester celery vase?
« on: March 07, 2018, 08:59:05 PM »
I've been looking all day at celery vases especially at Neil's Manchester Glass Molineaux and Webb website, I think this is a Percival Vickers " Colonial" style or similar but I am unable to find a makers mark. So I can't be sure.
It also could be Molineaux and Webb? Because of the shape.
It's ten inches high with a diamond pattern split by vertical oblongs?
I haven't found a picture anywhere on the web that matches it.
Any ideas?
It will also be up for sale if anyone is interested.

I'd agree with the suggestion of potentially from P.V., but I can't see an exact match anywhere either - perhaps someone else will have an idea.               Graduated diamonds were fairly common around that period, driven by the fashion to imitate cut glass it seems - plus it doesn't help either that there were probably a lot of un-registered celeries being made then.
