Cranberry Blown Art Glass Vase - Gold Fused Luster with Applied Collar

This vase is 3-1/2 inches tall and measures 2-5/8 inches in diameter at the base. It is unsigned, and we are still trying to identify the artist or further information on it. The base glass is a beautiful soft cranberry color, similar to some older Victorian Era pieces we have had. A most delicate gold luster appears to have been fused to the outside, and although it is smooth itself, it appears to perhaps have been a powder that was melted onto the glass.

The vase has what I believe are called "threaded" indentations swirling over the entire outer surface. Interestingly these swirl marks spear to have been made after the gold was added, since the gold in not down into these crevices. Around the upper portion of the vase is a clear glass scrolled collar that would have been applied after the piece was completed.

This piece captured my attention as something special. I have found nothing like it in my research; however I have seen a few pieces with similar characteristics or techniques by one particular artist. I am actually contemplating contacting him to determine if this is in fact an unsigned piece of his work. Should I be successful in identifying the artist, I will certainly update this listing. For now, it is merely a striking piece of art glass in beautiful condition.

I try to describe the items on this site as accurately as possible; however since most of the items are either antique or at best vintage, due to their age, they are sold in "as is" condition.
