Shipping calculated at checkout.

Late 19th Century Mt. Washington Cased Glass Gourd Vase This beautifully vibrant vase was manufactured around 1880-1900 by American glass company Mount Washington, and exhibits the high standard which Mount Washington blanks should meet. This piece consists of tri-colored cased glass; opaque rose as the interior, canary yellow as the exterior, and in between is a layer of white glass. The hand painted gilt decorations consists of exquisitely detailed birds on a branch surrounded by butterflies, flowers, and acorns. It is signed on the bottom. Mt. Washington and its successor, the Pairpoint Corporation, was one of America’s longest-running luxury glass companies (1837-1957), one that rivaled its better known contemporaries, Tiffany and Steuben. It constantly reinvented and re-invigorated its business through creativity in texture, decoration, pattern, and color - developing a variety of styles and decorating techniques which were so technically complex that few are even practiced today.
