  • A mystery! - 14-inch Tall Vase - FSG1090

  • A mystery! - 14-inch Tall Vase - FSG1090 Image
  • $825.00

  • A mystery!  This 14-inch tall vase has a beautiful silver top adornment that is touch marked with the three Gorham Mfg. Co. symbols — a right-facing lyon, an anchor and a ‘G’ followed by STERLING D1178.
    D1178 is shown on page GPB-157 of the ACGA Glass of Gorham catalog on a plain “Flute” 14-inch vase by Hope Glass Works of Providence, Rhode Island (ca.1902)
    A 12-inch vase of the very same shape as this 14-inch vase and with the exact design is shown in a 2/4/1908 trade ad from Book 4 of LABACS Cut Glass Advertisements (WOO-1) for the Woodside Sterling Co. of New York, NY.  The sterling top is completely different than the sterling on this 14-inch vase and the maker of the glass is not named.
    The conclusion of the above information is the maker of the sterling is known but the maker of the glass is unknown.   SAD!

    The vase is 14-inches tall, has a maximum diameter of 5-inches; weighs 4-lbs. 9-oz.
    The base has a 24-point radiant star.
    The blank is clear and without color and there is no internal residue or discoloration.
    The four columns of six punties provide an excellent prismatic effect.
    It is an elegant piece of American Brilliant cut glass that displays to advantage.
    Both the sterling and the glass are in better than extremely fine condition
