This Vintage Red & White Ruffled Cased Art Glass Vase With Applied Rope And Rough Pontil is an AMAZING work of art glass! The cased glass is red as a valentine on the outside and white as a dove on the inside. As you can see from our photographs, the Vintage Red & White Ruffled Cased Art Glass Vase comes to a point that is buried, dead center, in the crystal clear base. How do they do that? The top is crimped and ruffled to show off the red and white tones, and if that weren't enough, a clear crystal rope with intersecting pinched orbs coils at an angle from the mid point of the Vintage Red & White Ruffled Cased Art Glass Vase all the way down to the bottom. The final, glorious note in this visual symphony is that under a light, areas of the vase turn orange, like a sunset. Overkill? Not at all. Color it stunning!!
Our Vintage Red & White Ruffled Cased Art Glass Vase With Applied Rope is large, standing approximately 11-1/2" in height, mounted on a 2-7/8" diameter base, which, by the way, sports a jagged pontil where it was broken from the pipe (see our photographs). This is a masterful work of art, but, search though we might, we could find no mark and no signature. 1950's Murano? Possibly. Fenton? Less Likely. Whoever made this Vintage Red & White Ruffled Cased Art Glass Vase With Applied Rope was a master! Our price reflects the fact that we cannot cite a maker with any degree of certainty.
This vase is in perfect condition, with bubbles characteristic of blown glass, but with no chips, cracks or dings, which is a bit amazing, given the overall delicacy of the piece.
