Offered is a beautiful squat vase on a green ground covered in an even, silvery blue iridescence. The mounts cast as carnations and are faintly marked for the Alvin Corporation.This is a great example of Loetz art glass, alas, approaching empty nester status, we are preparing to significantly downsize in the near future so letting some of our treasures go. Outstanding overall antique condition with only age appropriate wear.
No chips, cracks, scratches or other damage. Sterling is all intact, with no missing pieces.
There is ONE small strip that, while solidly attached to the glass, does not seem as flush as the rest, and at the end where it connects to another piece, you can feel a very slight rough spot. I lightly polish the sterling every year or so, and that process has never caused any problems so if it was repaired, it is solid, and is barely apparent, even on close inspection. Im being VERY picky here, as I believe in full disclosure of any issue even if its not clearly an issue. The piece in question is shown in the last photo - in the side ways loop, it is the piece of silver on the left. 2-3/4 tall, 1-1/2 diameter bottom, 1-1/2 at the rim, 3 at the widest area.
