Glass Vase with Rosettes
Description: This is an exceptional piece of glass in several ways, including the size. The quality of the glass itself is very good, and everything here is hand done. Most of the bottom has been polished, leaving just a ring where the vase touches the table, and that shows the wear you'd expect from an item dating to the early 20th century. The decoration is cut, not pressed, and features alternating rows of blocks and rosettes with the blocks outlined in gold. This cutting style is difficult and would have been done by the master cutter where ever it was made. That part remains a mystery, although French or Bohemian seems most likely, late 19th or early 20th century.
Dimensions: Height is about 14 1/2"
Condition: excellent. There's a natural bit of wear on the gold but no damage to the glass. Of course, all our sales are fully guaranteed.
Price: $215 plus shipping and insurance.

To buy an item (or more), just e-mail us, or you can call us at 812-467-0191. It works best if you include the "item" code to let us know which item or items you're interested in. The code is at the beginning of each listing and is usually two letters followed by a number.
We'll confirm that the item is still available, make
sure we agree on the total, and answer any
We try to ship in one or two days after payment arrives, and we're generous with the bubblewrap and styrofoam peanuts.
If there's something you'd like us to find for you, let us know. We're just itching to please you, or maybe that was poison ivy we got into.
Remember that all proceeds go to support good causes: my spouse, our cats (see the "staff" here), our creditors, my auction addiction, and the plumbing project that never ends.
Not just the usual suspects.

try not to be overly picky about the
details. If we can put it in the bank and pay
some bills without any undo fuss, then we'll probably
take it. We're quite happy to take checks and money orders, and we're
signed up with Paypal,
which is the easiest route if you want to pay by credit
card. If you have some other method in mind,
get in touch, and we'll see what we can work
out. Monopoly money, anything you may have
printed in the basement, and chickens are right out.
