Featured here is a pretty unique and uncommon glass vase or pitcher. I've yet to determine its origins or manufacturer, so I'll be careful to separate fact from speculation.
Facts: It's about 6 1/2 inches tall and 4 1/4 inches in diameter at the widest point. It's pretty heavy, weighing in at 1 1/2 pounds. It has an opaque applied handle. There no trademarks or inscriptions on the piece.
Speculation: This seems to be a piece of Peachblow glass. Surely not Wheeling or Mt. Washington, but has some similarity to the New England pieces. No real matches there either though, and this vase seems a bit too "crude" to have come from that line. Some have described it as slag glass, indicating that it's too heavy to be peach blow. Others suppose it to be a Guernsey peachblow piece, having the same shape and general appearance of some of Harold Bennett's work. He had been thought to have dabbled, at least in a limited capacity, with a unique peach blow formula.
Regardless, it's a very pretty piece and a wonderful conversation starter in glass circles. Its true value, as is with most things, is in the eye of the beholder. I'm listing it here at a price that would inspire me to part with this cool piece.
I do combine shipping and refund shipping overages in excess of $1.50 (covers shipping materials) above actual cost, I’m not trying to make money off of shipping charges. I strive to ship items no later than the following business day. Items are generally shipped USPS priority mail which includes $50 insurance. All items are carefully packaged. If an item is damaged during shipping, please take pictures and let me know immediately so a claim can be filed with the shipper. If you prefer an alternate shipping method please send me a message to discuss options.
Sometimes Priority Mail shipping is cost prohibitive (especially for those on the West Coast). Send me a message and we’ll see if Flat Rate shipping is possible. Prices for this service is generally about $19 for a “Large” box and about $13.65 for a “Medium” box. Note that USPS Flat Rate boxes aren’t that big, so this might not be an option when purchasing larger items.
All items are described as accurately as possible, and any damage noted. Items are twenty or more years old and may show wear consistent with age/use. I encourage you to ask any questions prior to purchase. I generally do not accept returns, but there are always exceptions, so please message me if you feel you need to return an item. If you are not satisfied with your purchase for any reason please reach out right away so that we may reach an amicable solution, I want you to be happy with and enjoy your purchase!
I enjoy finding vintage pieces and moving them along to new homes. I’m an easy going person and do this more as a hobby than a business, I like researching these old items to find their origins/history. If you want to discuss any items listed, tell me I’m way off base on my pricing, wrong on my description, or whatever convo me!
