Pilgrim Cameo Glass Vase Kelsey Murphy Ceredo, West Virginia. It is singed Kelsey / Pilgrim with a registry no of 65005 and a date of 2001. It is Hot Cased Crystal, White and Cobalt Blue there are 5 thickness or layers carved in the cobalt blue giving it a dimensional effect.
The carving is of stylized bears. Due to the late entry of this shape into the line the number produced is limited. I have inspected the piece and found no chips and no cracks.
Cameo Glass is the art of carving through different layers of colored glass. This is just one of many beautiful designs that glass artist Kelsey Murphy got her inspiration from nature. Pilgrim under Kelseys direction had perfected hot casing multiple layers of hot glass and carving through them to the layers below. There are several companies that have done cold casing of layers but none have accomplished what Pilgrim Glass did with hot cased glass.
This feat along with the artistry is what will continue to keep this glass sought after in the future as more collectors realize just how special it is. Pilgrim Glass Ceredo, West Virginia closed in 2002 but there final chapter is far from over as more people discover the legacy they left behind.
