English Glass            American Glass. MERCURY PERF

A VERY RARE 'MERCURY GLASS' CASED PERFUME BOTTLE


A stunning and rare near perfect 'Mercury Glass' or silvered glass perfume bottle in cased red glass with hand carving and beautiful white metal (silver) fittings and original glass stopper.

The clear glass bottle is double walled with the silver deposit trapped between the walls and then the whole cased in red glass and hand cut back to reveal the silvered interior.

The technique of "mercury glass" was first patented in England in 1849 but production only lasted for four years as the process was very dangerous to the health of the glass blower. Having blown the vessel, the blower then had to suck the molten glass back inside the piece to form the double walls. This was a very dangerous process as the hot air burned and hardened the lungs of the blower. Production was discontinued in England in 1855 but continued to be copied in Bohemia and America for some years.

Mercury glass items are therefor very rare because few were made and the production period was so short. Added to this is the problem that the vessel only remains 'silvered' all the while a vacuum exists between the walls of the vessel. if air manages to enter then the silvering collapses. Perfect examples are therefor very rare and much sought after.

English Glass            American Glass. WEBB MINI BUG FL

A SUPERBLY DETAILED THOMAS WEBB PETITE CAMEO GLASS VASE

This miniature cameo glass vase by Thomas Webb is one of the finest and most detailed examples that we have ever seen. The intricately carved cameo glass fills the surface of the vase with a stunning design of Dog Rose brambles with flowers and buds and a bee hovering near an open flower in search of nectar.

The red ground is overlaid in a single white cameo glass layer which has been very finely hand caved to reveal the intricate design. The design, which consists of three main elements, the open flower, the bee with a flower and an emerging bud, is very dense with no empty areas to the surface of the vase. There is even a carved briar to the base of the vase where it would normally remain unseen.

Thomas Webb vases of this delightful petite size with such intricate designs are much sought after, not only for their rarity but also their charm.

A VERY RARE STOURBRIDGE CAMEO GLASS AUTOMOBILE 'POSY HOLDER' VASE

This cameo glass posy holder is exceptionally rare as it was produced to hold long stemmed flowers such as roses and was fixed to the wall of the passenger compartment of a large auto-mobile at the turn of the last Century.
This was a demonstration of absolute wealth and luxury as the cameo glass posy holder is a rare and expensive form of flower holder probably produced by Stevens and Williams. A very large auto-mobile would be required to be able to accommodate such a tall posy holder (almost 12 inches high) as well as the long stemmed flowers that were intended to be held by it.

A STUNNING SILVER OVERLAY ART NOUVEAU VASE WITH APPLIED HANDLES

The intricate silver overlay is of high quality silver undoubtedly applied in America. Three panels are formed by the tear drops and in two of these the silver is worked as flowers while in the third is an art nouveau shaped 'plaque' with ornate initials engraved on it. The silver work also has an interesting design detail of horizontal banding that holds the tear drop trails.
