Hyacinth Vase and Bowl in Hand-Blown Crackle Glass
Sparkling Hyacinth vase and matching centerpiece bowl
Blown glass Hyacinth vase and bowl matching set in hand-blown fine crackle glass. The Hyacinth, or bulb vase is in the teardrop shape with a tall bowl. This means it probably was made in the mid-20th century. Antique bulb vases are normally found with a shorter bulb bowl.
The Hyacinth vase has a pontil scar on the seat. It was mouth blown with a sheared polished rim. The matching large bowl does not have an evident pontil mark, probably obscured. Both items are in fine crackle, accomplished by dipping the hot formed glass in cold water.
Beautiful mid-century modern glass. Maker unknown. Possible German made glass. Estimated circa: 1970.
The vase measures 6.25″ tall and the bowl is 7.75″ round, 3.75″ tall. Both in perfect condition.
