Today we are pleased to offer for sale a beautiful and extremely rare large lodge Bristol glass vase!
Dating to the Victorian era, Bristol glass is known for its intricate, hand-painted motifs (often floral and woodland). This particular example is rare both for its palatial size and scalloped rim, along with its gilt detailing and white jewel dots.
This exquisite piece is finely crafted and detailed. The pedestal vase is made of clam broth-colored glass in a shallow, tall oval shape with fanciful border. It is beautifully and extensively hand-painted, showing a hunting scene featuring majestic stag crossing a woodland stream as ducks fly out of the floral brush before him. On the back, delicate white flowers and green leaves on a pale brown stems stretch across the width of the vase. The edges and base are accented with rich gilding accented with tiny white “jewels”. It is numbered on the bottom “2082/16″ F503”.
The vase is in very good antique condition, with display wear and patina commensurate with age. There is minor surface wear/scuffing, along with minor to moderate loss to gilding. No chips or cracks have been noted. Please review all photos before purchasing.
Dimensions: 16-3/4″ in height, appx. 8-1/2″ in width, 4-3/4″ in depth, 6″ in base diameter
