Property from an Important American Collection
acid-etched and cameo glass
11⅜ in. (28.9 cm) high
Overall in very good condition. When viewed in person, the vase presents with a slightly lighter acid-etched surface. The vase with light scratches and scuffing throughout consistent with age and gentle use. The body with very minor and scattered surface residue. The acid-etched glass with some very light crackling to the curved surfaces, consistent with age and only visible upon close inspection. As pictured on the catalogue photography, the white cameo patterns with inconsistent application inherent to production. The hydrangea motifs in excellent condition and display a range of purple to green hues.
