Vintage Bulb Vase or Flower Vase in Optic Cranberry Glass
Lovely vintage bulb vase by Pilgrim Art Glass, U.S.A.. Made by hand sometime during the Mid-20th Century.
Cranberry glass is a beautiful pink glass with a range of intensities. Until recently, the color was produced by adding real gold to the glass batch. The more gold used, the deeper and darker the pink became. The color intensity is also affected by the thickness of the glass, as it does with any other color of glass.
This vase has a deep, rich cranberry color with fairly thin blown optic glass. It was mouth blown into a 20-panel optic mold. Finished by hand-tool to create the crimped neck and rim ruffles. See image 5 for a color intensity example.
Quality vintage cranberry glass vase looks and works great with large flower bulbs. Perfect for a handful of flowers too. Sitting next to a huge Pilgrim Art Glass cranberry bag vase in image 6.
Measures 5.75″ tall, 4″ round base, with a 3.5″ round neck opening. In excellent condition.
