Signed Alexandrite Vase

R320.00 R192.00

I couldn’t believe my luck when I picked up this beautiful vintage Scottish vase the other day – I mean just look at that beautiful deer that’s etched onto the front of it! Sooooo pretty! The vase was made by the Caithness Glass Company, and supposedly dates to the late 1960s, which is shortly after the company was founded in 1961. This is the first time that I’ve encountered ‘alexandrite’ glass (also known as ‘neodymium’ glass) – that I’m aware of at least!  The inclusion of neodymium in the glass results in dichromatic glass that changes color in different lighting conditions – so this vase will appear pale blue under fluorescent lighting and a deeper lavender colour under incandescent light – so clever!

Note: There are one or two minor marks on the glass, but for the most part the vase is in excellent nick! 

Dimensions: 17cm tall x 9cm in diameter
