Stevens & Williams Antique Matsu No Ke Vaseline Glass Vase with Applied Leaves (Code 2578)
A 19th century Stevens & Williams Matsu No Ke vase. It has green trailing around the rim and green leaves with a yellow twig around the body. The inner rim and neck are in pink and the outer glass case is vaseline glass which glows green under UV light (shown in the images). These items were hand made and the pontil scar has been ground and polished to the base. It dates around 1880 and such examples are now becoming quite scarce.
Very good for period, no detected losses to the leaves. A few scratches to the body. Some rough lines inside the rim which appear to be from the glass blowers tooling as they worked the item.
