circa 1860 - 1870
A mid 19th century decalcomania glass vase, decorated with birds, butterflies and flowers laid upon light green ground.
The glass vase is now converted to a lamp and the three glass decalcomania cylindrical columns are supported on gilded, painted, ring-turned brackets. The lamp stands on a solid wooded base. The condition to the middle column and the glass ball is heavily distressed but the base is in near perfect condition. The design and vase form is most unusual.
Decalcomania is the process of transferring designs from prepared paper on to glass or porcelain. The decoration is on the inside of the vase, essentially making it a reverse glass painting.
