Super Cute Art Glass Vase
« on: January 02, 2019, 03:12:14 PM »
Does anyone recognize this darling vase? It has a textured finish, hand painted decor and gold enameled lip. No signature but came from a huge art glass collection containing a great deal or Moser, Bohemian and French art glass. Approx. h. 6.5, w. 4.25"

I wonder if it might have been made as an Easter commemorative/gift item......the dogs look like they are coming out of an egg with Spring blossom buds.

Probably won't be a great help with identification  ::)

The plants/buds are pussy willows. :)
The grey fluffy buds come out before the leaves do.

If pussy willow is a traditional plant anywhere - like prunus on Chinese designs - it might be a clue!

I'm not sure it is. But it is willow which is surprisingly, used in the traditional willow pattern Chinese decor.
It appears on the same trees that do the weeping willow bit, later on.
(The traditional "willow pattern" is so well known I don't even associate "willow pattern" with willow trees only blue and white china. It only stuck me afterwards, hence my surprise!  :-[ )

I'm also fairly sure we've seen this vase before.
I can't remember if it was id'd or not.  ???
