    A Powell wave-ribbed 'tumbler' vase in 'gold amber' glass, the shape (pattern 8473) designed by Marriott Powell in 1938. Production of these vases continued until 1970, so it may be post-War

    There are a couple of small bubbles in the glass toward the rim on one side, shown in the detail below, the smaller bubble at left being open, and the vase is priced accordingly

    Our reference:8837 Date:1938 - 1970
    Manufacturer:Powell Origin:England
    Dimensions:height 23 cm, weight 895 gm
    Condition:see description

    A wonderful Fašon de Venise double-gourd shaped vase, the body cased clear over blue, pink, and white murrhine sections, over a white interior, and with an applied clear foot ring. Although clearly intended to resemble Venetian glassware, it was almost certainly actually made in either France or Belgium, in about the 1860s or 70s

    Manufacturer:unknown Origin:France or
    Belgium
    Dimensions:height 19 cm, weight 330 gm
    Condition:very good

    A tall and slender 'solifleur' vase (shown very much smaller than life-sized in the photos above) circa 1900, beautifully hand-enamelled and -gilded with fruiting vines. The glossy enamels of the grapes and vine-leaves are typically French

    The vase is in generally good condition, but has a slight 'bloom' to the interior (visible in the detail above, right). This could be removed by an experienced glass restorer

    Our reference:8666 Date:c 1900
    Manufacturer:unknown Origin:probably
    France
    Dimensions:height 33.5 cm, weight 310 gm
    Condition:see description
