8,000 - 12,000 USD
Property from the Estate of a Private Collector, New York
DECORATED "JACK-IN-THE-PULPIT" VASE
15¼ in. (38.7 cm) high
8¾ in. (22.2 cm) diameter of fan
Overall in very good condition. This lot displays a wonderfully irregular fan, lobed foot, and neck and foot decorated with creamy white striations. The vase is executed in a beautiful iridized palette including ochre, amber, violet, cobalt, aqua, white, and chartreuse. The glass surface with scattered minor and extremely light surface scratches consistent with age and gentle handling. The glass with scattered minor air bubbles, particulate inclusions and surface irregularities inherent in the making and not visually distracting. The fan with some occasional very minor toolmarks which are inherent to production. The interior of the vase with some minor surface soiling and trapped debris in the neck. A highly charismatic example of the form.
The lot is sold in the condition it is in at the time of sale. The condition report is provided to assist you with assessing the condition of the lot and is for guidance only. Any reference to condition in the condition report for the lot does not amount to a full description of condition. The images of the lot form part of the condition report for the lot provided by Sotheby's. Certain images of the lot provided online may not accurately reflect the actual condition of the lot. In particular, the online images may represent colours and shades which are different to the lot's actual colour and shades.
