UNUSUAL EARLY SILVERCREST VASE (CELERY) WITH APPLIED FOOT AND GROUND PONTIL #AG60 - For Sale
UNUSUAL EARLY SILVERCREST VASE (CELERY) WITH APPLIED FOOT AND GROUND PONTIL #AG60
Really nice "Silver Crest" Vase or celery bowl with an applied clear glass foot, short stem and knop above. The knop and stem were applied and tooled as one piece and then the foot was separately applied, see close-up photos. Ground pontil scar on base. The vase is very slightly tipped to one side and the ruffles are not symmetrical. Some are straight and some lean a bit to the left and others lean a bit to the right. A few impurities in the glass also.
We believe it to be circa 1942-1945 (WWII vintage) if made "off hand" by Fenton or probably earlier if not, and then most probably European.
Absolutely perfect condition with only some wear to the underside of the base attesting to the age of the piece. About 8” tall x 6 ¾“ wide.
Very reminiscent of 19th century American blown glass.
An awesome beauty with lots of character!
