I love the quirky look of Jack in the Pulpit hand vases (above). They feature a raised/pointed section at the back of the rim of the vase and resemble a "jack in the pulpit" flower/plant (below) which grows in the forests of Ontario.
As is true with most hand vases, these 4 Jack in the Pulpit hand vases in my collection are unmarked. They were probably made by Vallerysthal Glassworks in France.
These spatter glass, multi-coloured hand vases are often referred to as Murano and were probably produced in the later 1900's (perhaps in Romania according to Marinka Bozzec - hand vase expert) and were popular in England. They seem to be similar in shape/mold to the "chunky" hand vases produced in the Victorian era.
We purchased this unusual green vase at an antiques fair in London, England.
This pair of blue vases (below) were a find here in Canada at the Aberfoyle Antiques Market south of Guelph, Ontario.
Shell art became popular in the 1830's and remained so until the turn of the century. I have accumulated a small collection of shell art pieces ranging from boxes and letter holders to picture frames and a snowglobe.
Amber is not one of the most popular hand vase colours, but I have a few of them. In the photos below, note the small amber hand vase to your right. It was a recent purchase. The shape is unusual (more torch than horn, flower or cornucopia) and the maker is unknown.
