I wouldn't call it art nouveau myself.
Thank you for your feedback. I must need clarification on my classification too. It was the same footing that I have with other Art Nouveau vases that caused my confusion.
It looks like it's ready to fall over; appears to be leaning.
Top looks like it was cut with a bottle cutter, but not polished.
Is that a vertical seam or mold mark?
I'd guess somebody melted a green bottle, twisted it and added some glass bits and cut the top off. Interesting results, kind of pretty. I don't see Art Nouveau either.
Good Evening Tom,
I really appreciate your feedback. I must be mistaken about my classification as Art Nouveau. I saw similar with the same footing but I must have got it wrong. It is very stable and isn't leaning. Interesting that you see it that way in the photos. I don't see any vertical seams. It has that ombre coloring to it too. The white milk glass hobnail like accents look like teeth. It is very unusual looking to me.
Thanks again for your reply!
Good job, LB. I have never come across a thorn vase before. I did, however, think it looked much more intricate that someone's experiment. Very interesting.
Thank you, Molly, for trying to figure it out with us!!!
Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge about this vase. I appreciate your time and insight into this piece. Now that you have educated me, it seems so obvious that the milk glass represents thorns. But I wouldn't have reached that without you. I will check out your IAO page too.
