...AN EXCELLENT PAIR of 12.5" TALL, ANTIQUE AMERICAN SILVER PLATE & FOLIATE CUT GLASS VASES by MERIDEN B. CO., MERIDEN, CT., circa 1870-80.
Beautifully worked glass with gilt accents. Highlighted by a central band of grapes & vines, profusely hand ground & cut all about. Long fern like foliates cover nearly the entire piece.
A somewhat scarce find as the glass is original and undamaged after 140 years!!! The silverplate frame is also in good condition with no plate loss, dings or dents.
I especially enjoy the glass marble prism drops on the sides. They offer a lot of charm.
Each is clearly marked with Meriden's early 'B' mark (Britannia Metal). Additionally marked with a model number: 179. This dates the pieces to the same era as triple plate and quadrupleplate.
Wonderfully decorative at 12 1/2" tall. Perfect as part of a garniture. A mantle. Sideboard. Hall table, etc.
And for the collector of American silverplate... perhaps a key acquisition of the hard to find combination of silver & glass... I don't think it out of place to say that these would be very hard to see again in this condition... or any condition.
Above you can see one of the round drops is slightly different. An early replacement perhaps. It's of the exact size but we want to point it out for disclosure sake...
