Phoenix Consolidated Glass, Bittersweet Vase, Three Color
For sale is a lovely Vase made by The Phoenix/Consolidated Glass of Monaca, PA. The Shape is a Tall tapered Shoulder Vase and the pattern is "Bittersweet". The Vase measures 9 9/16" tall and is approximately 5" wide at the shoulders. The opening of the Vase measures 3 1/2" wide and 3 1/4" at the base.
The Vase depicts Clusters of Peach or Salmon colored berries or fruits hanging on Light Jade green leaves growing from a woody vine. These are set against a chalky milk white background and is a lovely 3 color vase. This raised relief decoration surrounds the entire vase. The colors are strong and vivid and the mold is crisp.
The Vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. The top lip is polished, smooth and has a small bevelled edge which means it has not been ground from any chips. Usually this area has a few flea nicks and I am happy to report that this has none!! The Vase is not signed as these typically had Paper or Foil Labels. These simply fell off over the course of time.
This is a quality piece of American Art Glass. I'm sure the lucky buyer will be delighted with their purchase. This piece would fit well with a Winery Collection or someone decorating in an Italian or Greek Motif. This piece was made Circa 1926-1932.
Consolidated Lamp & Glass Company was located in Coraopolis, Pennsylvania. Phoenix Glass Company is located in Monaca, Pennsylvania. Phoenix began production of art glass in 1932 when 45-50 molds from the Consolidated Glass Company were moved to Phoenix and used until early 1936. This occurred because Consolidated Glass Company had been forced to shut down because of the Great Depression. They were both influenced by Lalique Glass from France.
