The vase is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. The vase has a wide cylindrical neck and a bulbous ovoid body with beautiful teal blue coloration in the glass which is elaborately decorated with hand painted pomegranate clusters, branches and leaves in pure white.
T his lovely vase was made during the period when the finest cameo glass and intaglio carving was produced as an alternate to the high price of English cameo glass. The quality of this piece is exceptional with the painted decoration heavily applied giving the illusion of actual cameo cut glass. This is the best quality Florentine Art Cameo piece I have ever seen.
Measures 9 1/4" high with a maximum width of 5 1/4", 4" top diameter and 3 3 /8" base diameter. Marked on the base with an acid etched oval stamp with "Cameo" inside and hand-written numbers "10/165".
