Property from the Andrew Shine Collection
BLOWN-OUT CABINET VASE
engraved L.C.T. o4837
3¾ in. (9.5 cm) high
Overall in very good condition. When viewed firsthand this vase displays a beautiful transition from transparent green glass in the upper portion to opalescent green in the bottom portion, overlaid with silver decoration. The glass displays with some scattered extremely minor air bubbles, particulate inclusions and minor surface irregularities inherent in the making and not visually detractive. The glass surfaces with some occasional extremely fine and minor surface scratches, consistent with age and gentle handling.
