Glass / Re: Clear glass footed vase with prunts

It might not be as well made but it has those glorious colours, which make it quite special as well as the opaque turquoise glass on it which is gorgeous :)

Thanks for your reply.

Yes, I'm pretty sure it does have a 'folded rim' not applied, my mistake.
It is similar in shape to this one which was made in about 1880. This does have an 'applied' turquoise rim and is not as well made as the clear one.

I assume a 'folded rim' is made by folding over the lip of the glass but it must taken a very skilled glassmaker to get near perfect height and 'weight' all away around the top of the lip, as this glass has.

Yes I understood that but the colour isn't in the glass. At some stage during the production, a thin layer of metal has been applied to the bottom of the panther, in between the black glass base and the animal, probably to reflect light and this has changed colour with time. It still reflects light but has gone orangy brown and gives it this glow now.

I do not think we can bring it closer to art deco. What I liked and wanted to say when I compared it to Sabino's opalescences was that orange-brown hue that colored the floor.

Hello Christopher,


This is not an easy one as the markings are so basic, but the style and finishing, as in quality,  remind me a bit of M Model. Unfortunately there's not much info out there that I could find   :-\

Thanks Christine.

Perhaps I'm wrong, but for me this piece doesn't have an Art Deco look, like as mentioned Sabino for instance. It's less stylized and looks quite realistic, and therefor, for me,  doesn't have to be squeaky clean. I can only take the 'patina' or dirt if you like, off once gone is gone.

He's rather handsome Anne. I wouldn't do any more cleaning personally
