Presented for your considerating is a very handsome cut-to-clear vase in a lovely fair AMETHYST / PURPLE / PLUM / GRAPE / VIOLET / LAVENDER. Cut into the mouth blown piece are four rows of large coin dots topped by a band of elongated ovals and spears. The upper edge has been finished off with a fish scale pattern and the clear base has been polished smooth. This heavy full lead (24% PbO) crystal vase is a vintage piece produced in Belgium or France.
It is in very good condition, but showing three scratches to the base. It also has a few tiny elongated unintentional air bubbles caught in the sides. 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. Further nicks, dings, chips nor repairs.
Diameter base: 2 7/8 inches. Weight: 2 pounds, 7.9 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 European crystal is sure to please.
