1897, in the pattern he called Opaline Brocade. The pattern is better known to American collectors as Spanish Lace. Done in a VASELINE base glass with an exceptional opalescent treatment, a ny bright or dark areas you might see in my pics are just sunlight glare or shadows. The glass is consistently colored and sparkling bright throughout.
The base has nice wear and a ground and polished pontil. The glass in inordinately thick at 1/4 and it weighs in at a hefty 6 lbs. The small clear area in the the bottom of the base in not a hole; just where the opalescence didn't cover. Stands a stately 7 3/8" high, measures 10" at its widest, 5 3/8" across the opening and 5 1/2" across the base. PRISTINE CONDITION: ABSOLUTELY NO DAMAGE OF ANY KIND!
I make every attempt to completely and accurately describe all of my glass and will point out any and all post production damage of any kind. I will also mention any of theses flaws that I deem worthy of mentioning.
I have been an avid collector of Early American Pattern Glass (EAPG), Victorian Art Glass, Vaseline Glass, Opalescent Glass and Carnival Glass for over 40 years. I know antique glass, I know what the glass collector looks for, and I know the quality that the serious collector expects.
