Offered is this beautiful amethyst-colored heavy tulip-shaped glass vase, made most likely by Boston & Sandwich (the first picture was taken in natural light while the others were taken with artificial light). The vase is 7 1/2 inches tall and 7 3/4 inches wide at the top. As are common with these old glass vases, there is a chip on the rim (see last picture) and a couple of small base chips. The vase is attributed to Boston & Sandwich due to the color and shape of the vase and because it fluoresces a very gentle green under black-light, typical of 19th century glass objects.
