This glass vase was produced in France in the mid 19th century. We do not know the maker since the vase is not signed. The glass has a lead content and rings when pinged. The vase is hand blown and has a polished pontil. The vase is 13 3/4 inches tall. The diameter of the opening is 6 1/4 inches. The vase is wonderfully hand painted. There is a life-like parrot perched on a branch with his wings out-spread. The tropical greenery around him is painted with fine detail and surrounds the whole vase. Condition: There is wear and losses to the gilded trim on the rims and borders. This vase maintains a marvelous decorative value despite these flaws.
