This is a large and heavy glass vase dating to around the 1930s.
It is an attractive and harder to find piece of hand-blown Art Glass.
I haven't been able to establish with full certainly the maker of this stunning vase - but it certainly is reminiscent of John Walsh Walsh Pompeian glass wares from the first half of the 20th century. The shaped foot on my vase and the pretty sugar pink colour is certainly similar to other variants in the Pompeian range.
Regardless, it remains a rather stunning piece of 1930s / 1940s Art Glass.
It has a shape reminiscent of a thistle head.
It is made of thick glass and it has lots of bubbles in the glass itself, as well as a very subtle gold lustre to the surface. The glass body has a slight roughness to touch - caused by all the bubbles trapped inside the glass.
The rim is not sharply cut or sliced - but has a gently rounded edge.
There is a large dimple or ground pontil mark on the base.
A nice large piece - it measures 7 1/2 inches in height. The diameter of the rim at the top is also 7 1/2 inches. The foot has a diameter of 4 inches.
Unpacked it weighs just under 1.2 kg
It has no damages or any kind.
A great item to add to your glass collection - or just as a fine decorative piece.
