More Than McCoy

Manufacturer: Stevens & Williams
Exquisite vintage blown art glass vase. After researching this item, I would attribute it to either Stevens & Williams Glass Co. or Webb c: 1800's. It is cased satin glass with diamond pattern; known as mother of pearl. This deep amber iridescent vase is quite stunning; much better than the photos show it! No chips or cracks. It has one tiny pin dot/bubble on exterior, see pic #8. It stands 7.5 inches tall. There is some whitish specks mainly near the top fluted rim edges; not sure what that is but I believe this was just part of the glass making process. There are some comparable Murano diamond pattern mop vases, but all the Murano items I have viewed have a white interior; this vase has a beautiful blue interior. This vase is also very smooth to the touch, unlike Murano. The pontil mark is unground and the vase is one uniform color on the exterior, not graduated color, also unlike the Murano. It has eight even flutes/flares on the top rim. The art glass books show some Webb pieces with the mop diamond pattern that date to the 1880's and another glass dealer I know says he found a similar item while researching S&W. Based on my research and experience I believe it was made by Thomas Webb or S&W, and not Murano, but you will have to be the final judge on its maker. It is an exceptionally beautiful piece; the photos just do not capture it's true beauty. 3/14br#
