Beautiful big, vintage Cambridge elegant vase measures 10.5″ tall with a 5″ wide mouth opening. Made by Cambridge Glass Company, vase form number 278. Produced during the early Mid-20th Century, circa 1940’s.
The sterling silver overlay was done by Silver City in their Peony pattern. The intricate Peony pattern was hand decorated in real silver with satin frost on the leaves. The rim is bordered with Sterling Silver. The vessel was mold blown with a weighted base and applied to the foot.
This lovely well-made vase is in wonderful condition with even patina on the Sterling. The slight darkening of the silver, called patina, occurs naturally over the years and warms the silver tone. It is a splendid sign of age that is best not to be polished. The silver could be polished if one prefers, and it will result in shiny, like new silver.
This vase does not have the original labels as shown in images 5 & 6. We have included the images of a vase just like this with the original marketing info..
