This listing is for a STUNNING unusual size green glass vase with elaborate Sterling Silver overlay, c. This incredible vase has a thickly applied layer of Sterling Silver overlaid on a heavy deep green glass body and is one of the largest vases of this type I have seen.
The silver body has alternating panels of pierced work in the shape of floral bouquets with foliage exposing the lovely dark green background. The design includes large cut-out panels on the center portion of the body with alternating smaller cut-out panels with single flowers below. The neck of the vase has a diamond cut collar. The silver curves around the top upper edge and the lower bottom edge and is smooth to the touch. In between two of the panels and just below the shoulder area of the vase is a large "Old English" monogram "A", beautifully engraved in nice proportion.
I have looked all over the silver design but have not found the Sterling stamp. We believe it was made in the U. By Gorham, Alvin or one of the other prominent silver companies operating in the U. Measures 14 1/8" high with a 4 1/2" diameter base.This fabulous vase is in excellent Estate condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. The silver is clean and is also in excellent condition. If you collect or just appreciate silver overlay work, this vase will become one of the highlights of your collection!
