Opaline Glass Vase
Description: This French Opaline glass vase is of fine quality and unusual size and shape, not what you find most often in Opaline. It was probably part of a mantel set originally. Coloring is soft yet rich, and the glass is filled with tiny, irregular seed bubbles. Date of origin is no later than the late 19th century but could be significantly earlier. (And it's priced assuming circa 1890.) The pontil is small and unfinished. Coloring makes it hard to see, but there's an extensive wear ring on the bottom...from actual age. The glass is fairly thin and light, elegant. While Opaline is not hard to find, especially later items, this is an uncommon, older piece, not a recent import.
Dimensions: Height is about 12 1/2" with a maximum diameter of about 4 1/4".
Condition: excellent with no damage and no repairs. Of course, all our sales are fully guaranteed.
Price: $145 plus shipping and insurance.
Shipping: $10.95 for Priority Mail and insurance within the US.
International shipping rates by request.
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 questions you wish to throw our way. Checks or money orders should be made "Forrest OR Virginia Poston". We also take Paypal (including credit card payments).
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.
(Cats and batteries not included.)
Not just the usual suspects.
