Item # 4813. A large Blown, Cut and Etched Pokol or Goblet. We don't know if this is European or American. It has decorations similar to Sandwich grape and leave decor from the 19th century. We are offering this goblet as 19th century and it could be as early as 1825 or as late as the 1880's. Probably used in a tavern as an celebration goblet.

The stem is twisted, the lower section of the goblet itself has large faceted 'cuts' while the top third of the goblet is etched with a surround of grapes, leaves and vines.

Condition: no losses to the metalwork; there are tiny edge flakes to the upper rim. There is no pontil on the underside.

Price: $1,750.00.
# 5014. A pair of Aesthetic Victorian art glass cream and sugar. Manufactured by Consolidated Glass. It is called shell and seaweed pattern. The glass appears deep rose color at the top fading to a pale pink at the base. The form is a shell and coral like decoration in blown relief with enamel painted flower and stem decorations. The metal work is silver plated consistent with production by any number of Conn. silver companies of the 19th century. The interior of the glass is consistently white implying that the glass is cased. Condition: the metal is worn of most of the silver. The enamel paint decoration appears intact. There are no losses to the metal or cracks or chips to the glass. The shell and coral decoration is very much in blown out relief. There are minor paint losses and scuffing consistent with use and age. I would dates this set around 1885. Price: $450.00 the pair.
Item # 4667. A set of four candle sleaves probably made for a gas table lamp or gas chandelier or gas wall sonces. The fixture in any event would have been a high style Art Nouvea design. Probably Palme Koenig but possibly Loetz. c. 1900. Each is different but the sizes are the same: 6.5" tall, 3/4" out side dimension with 5/8" iniside dimension. Condition: fleck to one of the candles; tiny roughage on tops and bottoms. Price $1,250.00 the set.
Shade 5. Offering an unusual Quilted Amberina Style Glass Ball shade. Suitable for a column, moderator or carcel lamp. Size: 7" tall; 7" diameter; fitter opening 2 1/4". Condition: edge flakes to the fitter opening and I suspect that there were fitter rings at the top and bottom of the shade and those are missing. Colors are range from a deep ruby to a very pale pink. Don't know where or who made this shade. Believe it to be period, sometime in the late 19th century. Joseph Locke of the New England Glass Company developed Amberina and it was registered by W.L. Libbey. If this is Amberina, it is a pretty rare shade. Price: $300.00.

# 3959. I believe that this particular American Art Glass vase is Durand made by the Vineland Flint Glass Works of Vineland, New Jersey. Unsigned. Similiar works by Tiffany, Steuben and Quezal. This item is shown in DURAND THE MAN AND HIS GLASS by Meschi on page 72. He identifies it as a Syrup dispenser which would account fot the short collar at the top where the metal cap would go. White glass inside, gold (variously shaded with satin and glossy finished and a favrile ness to the surface. No pontil but a slightly recessed coin size area to the center of the underside of the vase. Footprint: 5.5"; top opening: 3.5"; 11" tall. Condition: tiny, tiny flakes to the rim. Tiny Surfaces scratches consistent with age and cleaning.I suspect that this was a base to a lamp and a cap covered the top. The entire surface of this vase has a satin finish with the exception of a one inch band at the base of the vase: that area is glossy. Price: $495.00.
# 3713. Bohemian "Spa" glass, mid 19th century. Red flash against clear. Worn gilt bands at the lip. 4-3/4" tall. $450.00
