Lovely antique Victorian glass hand vase. Likely dating to the 1880s-1900s era, this opaque white glass hand vase is perched on a pedestal that has been painted black. It is about 11 tall and depicts a lady's pink right hand holding a ruffled cornucopia. I believe this is French in origin, but can't be certain. There is a rough pontil mark on the bottom.
CONDITION : VERY GOOD (Poor-->Fair-->Good-->Very Good-->Excellent-->Mint) No chips or cracks. There are some black spots on the ruffled rim that are a bit rough - perhaps a manufacturing flaw. Gold paint on the lady's ring has losses. Some residue/discoloration on the bottom interior of the vase. Remains of an old sticker on the bottom.

I aim to please, and describe every item to the best of my ability. But please note that my vintage items often received frequent use back in their day, so may show visible signs of wear and age.
Personally, I wouldn't have it any other way, as I treasure those marks of the past. This item is in the category "Collectibles\Decorative Collectibles\Vases".
