IT’S A WHIMSEY VASE!

Here is a Blue Opal Piasa Bird vase!! I love this pattern… it is so intricate and has a lot going on! This vase sits on 3 Ball & Claw feet which are delightful!

One thing you note here is the cool whimsey shape of this vase. AND THE TOP is so neatly made! VERY VERY COOL and unusual! SO MUCH OPAL TOO!

This is a heavy piece of glass and it is TALL! Over 9 inches which is crazy for one of these!

Older references go from English to US etc…back & forth.  Mike Carwile found this pattern in a book by Cyril Manley, “Decorative Victorian Glass,” just not in Opal.  So, definitely English. I think most attribute it to Sowerby.

Buy cool and pretty pieces! This one qualifies as BOTH!

This comes from Samantha’s private collection.

Circa early 1900’s.

~NO CHIPS OR CRACKS~

Approximate dimensions
