RARE HUGE C1970 BILLY BRIGGS WATERFORD 14 x 9 1/2 LEAD CRYSTAL SCALLOPED TOP EDGE VASE. Magnificent, handmade, DESIGNERS GALLERY COLLECTION Made in Ireland. Unique, meticulous, and rare copper wheel cutting is sharp to the feel and distinguishes features of this vase from other cutting methods.
Beautiful lavish-cut scalloped, strongly traditional structured rim recalls the structured world of MUSIC to which the composer bought a new approach. Inspired by the beautiful Victorian operetta âeMaritanaâe(tm) written by Waterford-born composer William Vincent Wallace in 1845. This stately vase exudes musical reflections of the opera....Very exciting to receive as a wedding, anniversary or special day gift especially for the Music or Opera enthusiast. Rosette Decorations, closer vertical wedge cuts suggest the drape of velvet that adorned the Theatres in which the MARITANA was performed. Rows of strawberry diamond cuts ascent the body representing stage lights that illuminated the performances. The Maritana Vase is an original work of art designed by Billy Briggs for the Designers Gallery by Waterford Crystal. Billy has captured the gothic elegance of the mid 19th Century operas and velvet draped theatres.
