I don't know why Beaumont Glass isn't better known. This vase and base would generally be called opaline, but the company name was Ferlux. The flared vase features a hand painted heron and rushes decoration. This item isn't overwhelmingly hard to find even with the base and painting, but what makes this one stand out from most is the condition of the painting. There are some worn spots, but overall it's unusually good given how this type of "silver" painting tends to disappear. Date is early 20th century.

Condition: excellent with no damage and no repairs, just a little wear on the silver...and much less than usual for that. Of course, all our sales are fully guaranteed.

Height of the vase is about 6". Vase and base together reach about 9 5/8".

Price: $125 plus shipping/insurance based on location

Buying, Paying, and Such Things

You may notice that we don't have a checkout where you can just click for your goodies without so much as saying hello. Well, we want people to say hello, ask questions, even hope for a better deal. Long ago, I told stories for 7 hours (free refills on coffee), so "impersonal" just isn't my style. Click on one of those "E-mail" buttons. I can't handle as much coffee as I used to, so the stories will be fewer.

These days, Paypal is about the easiest payment method around, but we still take checks, even cash. No Monopoly money, nothing printed up in your basement, no chickens, etc., but otherwise we're fairly flexible. If we can put it in the bank without anyone getting in a tizzy, we'll probably take it.

Please take time to stroll through the site. Sorry we can't offer you a cup of coffee or tea while you're looking, but maybe you can take care of that yourself. Just don't spill it on the keyboard. And if you run into any questions along the way, there should be an e-mail link on every page, so just click and ask.

Hope you'll enjoy our "sing the body eclectic" approach (with apologies to Walt Whitman). As always, proceeds go to support our creditors, my spouse, our cats, my auction addiction, and the plumbing project that never ends.

What's "Gin-For"? Strictly medicinal purposes.
