Large Green and Blue Striped Glass Floor Vase probably Chinese
For a full product description, see below.
This is a handsome example of a heavy glass floor vase, probably fair contemporary and originating from China.
The vase is made from thick layered glass in the ‘sommerso’ fashion. There is an inner flint glass layer, over which has been applied a blue and green vertically striped layer that is almost white at the rim. This has then been covered with a large diagonal layer of very dark purple that appears almost black at the base. The whole has been encased in a thick layer of flint glass on the exterior, which can be seen at the base. The latter is polished flat and is unmarked.
It has a maximum height of approximately 37.2cm, with a diameter across the rim of about 16.0cm and across the base of about 7.8cm.
It is in excellent condition, with no chips or cracks, although there are a few wear and tear scratches around the base commensurate with age. There are also some enclosed bubbles within the design; these are manufacturing artefacts and do not detract from the piece in any way.
