Stevens & Williams White Glass Vase w/Applied Handle and Acorn & Oak Leaf Motif - image 1 of 8

Stevens & Williams of Stourbridge, England, made many types of glass, including layered, etched, cameo, and art glass, between the 1830s and 1930s. Some pieces are signed S & W. Notable engravers at the Stevens & Williams manufactory include: Joshua Hodgetts (1858 -1933) - Hodgetts was a amateur botanist who used his knowledge to cover vases and objects with naturalistic motifs. Many of his works also have an oriental emphasis following the trend of the day for Chinoiserie. Frederick Carder (1864-1963) Worked at Stevens & Williams 1881-1902 known for museum quality works in the Art Nouveau style. (Also founded Steuben Glass Works in Corning, New York in 1903). William Fritsche (working 1870’s onwards) Bohemian born glass engraver. Worked for Thomas Webb & Sons and engraved items in Classical style, particularly on the rock crystal body.

This lovely, blown, white opaque glass vase with applied decoration, circa 1900, is a classic piece of art glass from that era. The round ruffled top has an applied clear light yellow edge. The long, slightly tapered neck flows downward to a round bulbous base. A clear medium amber twig handle extends from the lower neck down to and across the body of the vase, from which is applied a lovely amber and red oak leaf and two amber acorns. The base shows a nicely formed pontil. The top measures 4" across, the base 2 1/2" across and 8" in height. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint.
