Pink glass vase. Tiny bubbles in glass. Slight scratches on the body of the vase and at the bottom of the vase. No chips. Mouth of vase is 7.5 inches. Height of vase 12 inches. Widest part at the bottom of the vase 5 1/4 inches. Thickness of glass as measured at the mouth of the vase is 4.0mm. Glass line at the bottom of the vase.
I purchased the vase at a small antique shop in Middletown, CT that has since closed. The store owner when asked about the vase, simply said that they didn’t know anything about it other than the fact that it was just “unique”. I purchased the vase for $40 because I loved the shape and color. I have tried to search online for another vase like this one but I haven’t had any luck. I am assuming that it is depression glass since it has tiny air bubbles and light scratches.
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
This is a beautiful vase - you did well only spending $40 for it. You are also correct that this is Depression glass. There were lots of different companies so without a stamp or mark it's often difficult to tell who made this; you don't say if this has a mark etc but if you spot one please let me know as it could change the value.
