A vintage, probably antique, vaseline glass vase in an electroplated nickel silver (EPNS) two handled pierced casing bearing the marks to the base of Israel Sigmund Greenberg (ISG within a shield – 1884 to 1937). There is very little information about ISG but the mark is believed to be an earlier mark. No doubt someone will put us right if we are incorrect.
The vase has been cleaned but we were unable to remove the glass vase from its casing in order to do this properly and we have therefore been unable to clean the item as thoroughly as we would have wanted. There is some sediment between the outside of the glass and the inside of the casing which we have been unable to remove.
As we have been unable to remove the glass vase, we have not checked it thoroughly but a purely visual inspection of the visible areas reveals that it appears to be intact with no visible chips or cracks. There is quite a degree of tarnishing and wear to the plating on the casing, particularly towards the base which we have tried to show in the photographs. However, to our mind, this is a charming item.
The vase stands approximately 7.375in to the top of the glass rim and measures about 4.75in in diameter at the outer metal base (the inner base measures about 3.25in in diameter). Weighs nearly 850g.
