Vintage Cameo Art Glass Vase Description and Item Information Up for sale is this vintage art glass vase. Please excuse any glare in the photos.
This large, blue glass vase has relief areas with green and brown enameled decoration. The decoration includes a scenic landscape with trees, mountains or hills, bamboo, and a large bird, either a pheasant or a peacock. The vase is approximately 12 1/4 inches tall, with a maximum diameter of about 6 3/8 inches. Unpacked, this piece weighs 4 pounds 7.3 ounces.This would be an interesting addition to a collection of vintage art glass. Identification This vase has a raised marking to the lower side, as shown in Photo 6; this may say, "Mdali, M Lali, "M Sali, or something else. There is a worn paper label affixed beneath, as shown; this looks like an inventory number from a previous collection. The exact origin of this vintage or possibly antique piece is unknown, as is the exact age. It is probably European cameo glass (perhaps French or Bohemian). Condition The vase displays well overall, but it is not in perfect condition. It has minor wear to the enamel and there are some light scuff marks. There are three tight fractures/cracks which are most easily seen if you look down inside the vase (please see Photo 8 at approximately the twelve o'clock, nine o'clock, and seven o'clock positions). I can not catch my fingernail on the cracks on the interior or exterior of the vase. These cracks extend from the corseted area near the bottom of the vase up to within or a bit higher than the mountains/hills part of the landscape decoration. The longest crack is shown on the exterior of the vase in Photo 9. As made, there is a small bubble to the side of the foot, with a green enamel halo (please see Photo 7). Payments must be received within three days of the end of the listing, unless prior arrangements have been made.
