Can anybody find the article about these silver topped vases?
« on: January 23, 2007, 01:26:07 AM »
A long time ago I read an article about silver topped vases. It stated that although the tops are often hallmarked for British silversmiths the vases were mostly imported from Europe. I think it even gave some details of who imported them or where they came from. I saw this pair on eBay just recently and I wondered if anybody else remembers that article, or indeed any other information about these kinds of vases:

 I have quite a few of these vases from the 1890s through to around 1930 and they are fascinating. Does anybody else collect them apart from me? And can anyone point me to that article?
Many thanks
Angela

ps I found a couple more very interesting pics of silver topped vases:

Pamela
Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)
