Presented for your consideration is a. Cut-to-clear crystal pedestal vase in a lovely deep CRANBERRY RED / PINK. Cut into the mouth blown piece are two bands of eight large elongated cameo panels separated by a diamond pattern band. The upper edge has been polished mirror smooth and is a whopping 5/8 inch wide.
The chunky clear cut stem leads to a slightly bevel-cut octogonal base. This large and heavy full lead (24% PbO) crystal vase is a vintage piece manufactured for WMF in Bavaria for their Cristall Cabinet line. It is in excellent condition. Nicks, dings, chips nor repairs.
Unintentional air bubble caught in the base as well as one on the upper edge. I personally see bubbles as cute anomalies rather than flaws, attesting to the fact that the vase was not machine made, but blown and cut by a craftsman.
It is marked with an etched crest as shown. The previous owner stuck on tiny felt pads to avoid scuffing furniture. I will leave it to the new owner to remove these if she or he so wishes. The name William Fraser is based upon the importer and distributer of WMF products to the USA, Fraser's Ltd.
Diameter at widest part: 5 1/2 inches. Weight: 6 pounds, 1.6 ounces. Please be assured that I will pack this piece with the utmost of care in tissue paper and bubble wrap to make sure that it arrives safely in your home. And been scouring the flea markets for over 30 years.
I have been mailing packages internationally for longer than that. Beautiful piece of German crystal is sure to please.
