This piece is in satin and has a pretty silver overlay.
This is what Neila Bredehoft said in her book The Collector’s Encyclopedia of Heisey Glass 1925-1938:
Colors: Moongleam, flamingo, sahara, alexandrite, tangerine, cobalt, marigold
Widely used for Heisey etches and cuttings”
Interesting comment – “Early Heisey ads also referred to it as “Lilies of France” pattern”
This piece is the 5 1/2 inch mayonnaise bowl. Notice the dolphin feet.
I posted the query on the Elegant and Everyday Glass Forum where someone provided the identification. I had a quick look online. Didn’t find this vase, but learned about lots of other neat stuff including the information that Birks might have made some of the silver overlays for some of these pieces.
If this is a part of this line then the piece was likely made in the sixties. Hard to believe that this is still potentially fifty years old! Sheesh, I still remember the sixties!
Nice heavy piece of glass, although impractical to use without a frog – the flowers kept sliding into the lower lobes.
Don’t know if you are supposed to clean the silver. I’ve read that you are not. Don’t want to ruin it. If anyone knows, please pass on your information.
