Baccarat Perhaps
« on: August 13, 2006, 04:10:49 AM »
Current best guess on this vase is Baccarat.  French generally seems most likely anyway with Belgian a second choice.  It's mould-blown in a three part mold with the raised area stained a purple-ish cranberry and the background done in waves.  It's a lower end attempt to get the cameo look.  It may well be one of those that just can't quite be confirmed, but I'd like to try.
Thanks.
Forrest

it looks related to the blue vine cameo I asked about some time ago (click here for thread) - but the finish is different, so maybe you're looking at an early Kosta piece instead.

If the flower is a lily then I agree. According to Art, Feat and Mystery, HW Woodward, these were made in tulip and lily pattern moulds, the background was etched away then the whole finished in the engraving/etching shop by craftsmen. Pseudo-cameo came in gold ruby, blue amethyst, amber, green and citron

Ivo,
Was yours stained blue, or was it two colors of glass?

Definitely not Webb Cameo Fleur, which is a cut-back glass.  This vase was moulded all clear, one layer of glass, and then stained with the amethyst color.  It's not just faux cameo; it's very faux cameo.....but still an older piece.

I wouldn't say it's unusually heavy, but it's at least medium weight. Height is about 9 inches.
