A lovely late 1800s ball shape vase with hand painted raised daisy decoration. This small vase was made by the Smith Brothers and Mt Washington Glass Company, one of the premier glass houses of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Smith Brothers designs are characterized by their matte finished opaline glass with subtle hand painting, tracery, and raised dot decoration. Their pieces bear the red lion passant trademark on the bottom, as does this piece.
The vase stands 4 1/8" tall and approximately 3 5/8" in diameter. There are no chips or cracks, though there are rim dots missing their white paint. If you collect American art glass of the late Victorian era, you'll love this piece and want to add it to your collection.
