Iridised Burmese j.i.p vase
« on: November 05, 2006, 11:34:55 AM »
Here is a beautiful jack-in-the-pulpit vase, in Burmese glass with an iridised finish. It glows under u.v like Burmese is meant to do.
It is 15.5 cm tall & the rim is 12.5 cm across. It has a spiral around the stem, more visible in the back view of the vase. No markings.
It would not be usable as a vase, as it is unusually shallow inside, only a few cm deep.

I bought it from a dealer who specialises in carnival & Fenton, & although he bought it in the U.S he didn't think it was Fenton.
I have the book on Fenton Burmese but there isn't a piece quite like it.
I know there are a few firms who make Burmese from Fenton cullet, but they apparently mark their items.
Any ideas on a maker?
Thanks! :)

Hi Marinka -

This JIP vase reminds me of pieces made by a comtemporary glass artist whose website was posted here recently.  But I can't remember which thread it was posted in  :oops:

Hopefully the member who posted the link will see this and point us in the right direction  :lol:

Thank you, David.  That is the artist I was trying to remember.

Here is a link to his product page which shows some similar vases

Similar but I don't think the same, unless it was an earlier design. No trails on the ones shown and the base looks different.

Edit: lovely vase though!

I agree, they are similar I didn't say identical.  He has been producing glass pieces for 40 years.

It was the combination of the JIP shape, use of iridescent finishes, and body one color with a different colored throat which made me think that it could be the same artist.

I think it is worth e-mailing him and asking  8)

Hi Connie & David,
thanks for your opinions, much appreciated! :)
This vase does look like the ones by Rick Strini, & I'll investigate as to whether he ever made them in Burmese.
I'm glad you liked the vase, I think it's stunning, & it was a pretty good buy,too. Especially for Burmese! :D
I have a few other pieces of Burmese by Fenton, including another j.i.p vase, & some Victorian Burmese too. I just love the colours of Burmese, & when it's iridised it's even more magical!
Thanks again. :)
Marinka.
