BAUER "Carnation" Vase. Of commanding presence, the roleaux-shaped vase with a slightly flaring lip stands an imposing 9 5/8" High and measures 5 3/4" across the lip. Glazed in a particularly lovely deep green glaze with a matte finish.
Much of Bauer's early work was done for the florist trade, and this was their 'Carnation" vase, designed to display carnations or other long-stemmed flowers in an actual florist's shop.
In acceptable original condition. (Please note: this vase is not completely watertight, so that it 'weeps' when filled with water, which means that it requires a liner. Florist's shops in the 1920s most likely used galvanized tin liners, tho one could probably use a plain glass cylinder vase, or even a big tin can as a liner! PLEASE ALSO NOTE: In addition, there is some 'disturbance' to the glaze surface in areas, where a thin top layer of color is peeling off, tho in doing so it reveals a lighter green color underneath.)
Processing and shipping within the Continental United States $32.00, plus 1.5% replacement cost/insurance.
