Retro Cased Glass Vase

R190.00

Given how simple the shape of this retro flower vase is it’s surprising that I haven’t come across it before, at least I don’t think I have (I’ve sold a good number of vases over the years!). From what I’ve read about cased glass it seems likely that this vase is a mid-century, possibly slightly later, piece of Italian glass, although the Scandinavians also produced some beautiful cased glass, so you never do know! I bought it for the plainness of the design, the colour, and the fact that the yellow glass is cased in that wonderful clean white. I really, really like cased glass – it gives such a clean look, plus the double layer of glass normally means that the colour of the outside glass is nice and vibrant!

A wonderful retro vase in near mint condition.

Note: The colour of the vase is a slightly softer yellow than it appears in the photos

Dimensions: 30.5cm tall x 10cm in diameter (at its widest)
