For sale is a lovely piece of art glass that was most likely made by The Mount Washington Glass Company of New Bedford, Mass. The item is a flower form "Lily" vase and it is done in a beautiful Amberina style of art glass. The lily vase is a nice cabinet size as it stands 6 1/4" tall and the top has a diameter of approximately 3" across the widest part of the open lily. The bottom foot has a diameter of 2 5/8".

The vase displays a wonderful trumpet flower form shape with a rolled up back lip and rolled down lip in the forefront. It resembles an open Calla Lily as the free form hand blown ripples can be seen towards the outer edge of the lily. The vase is a fuchsia cranberry that bleeds down to a smoky amber. There is also a little bit of a streak that almost appears opal in certain light but shows periwinkle blue purple in another in the upper portion of the trumpet. It is just a stunning example of this highly collected glass. This was a two part vase that was attached to the round foot and was executed with style.

The vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks or dings. There are some tooling marks on the on the side of the form but nothing obtrusive. There are also some scratches on the underside base where that vase rests but are considered normal wear for its age. The vase is unsigned but has a countersunk polished pontil which signifies the finishing mark of a quality piece of art glass. There is little doubt that this was made by The Mount Washington/Pairpoint Glass Company as the hand made characteristics of the glass was a signature trademark. The two companies merged in 1894 and the company never mass produced its wares. This little gem is quite hard to find in this size. These small cabinet pieces were often broken or lost because of their size. This one is in exceptional condition for its age. This vase was made circa 1880's-1890's.
