Rarest Cut Glass Hanging Vase!!!! – SOLD
You will never see another one like this. This is the ultimate in hanging vases! I have no idea what company made this, but it’s an absolute masterpiece. What’s even more amazing is that it actually has its hanging metal chain which fits around all 3 perfectly annealed handles!
I can’t say enough about this vase-every time I look at it I get excited because I know it’s the best of its kind. The vase is covered in an unusual motif of large hobstars graduating in size as one’s eyes move up the piece. Under the handles there is a beautiful vesica of cane and smaller hobstars. The handles are covered in triple notching in a manner that is similar to some Straus pieces. The base has a step cutting and an unusual lapidary finish and the neck is also finished in stair cutting.
This piece is absolutely massive and weighs lbs. It measures 10 1/2″ long and 6 1/2″ wide and the blank is water white, without stains. It’s in near mint condition with just a slight bit of roughness on the pointed base and a couple of fleabites in the handles. All of this is negligible but mentioned merely for accuracy’s sake. This is truly one of the best pieces in ABP glass and very few, if any collections have an example this fine.
