~~ Phoenix Cranberry Spatter Glass Decanter ~~ Scarce Form, Whimsey?, Monaca, Pa For Sale
PHOENIX Spatter Glass Decanter
Up for sale is this very nice piece of Phoenix spatter glass, a decanter! This is a very unusual form for Phoenix spatter glass, much more often seen made into pitchers, or water sets with a pitcher and tumblers. This is the first Phoenix decanter we have offered for sale, and we can't seem to find record of another one having been offered online!
We believe that this is indeed Phoenix glass, judging on the glass composition, color, and style, although we can't recall having seen another one like this. It's made of colorless glass with cranberry, opal and maroon flakes, blown in a ribbed and lobed melon shape as are a number of Phoenix pieces, with an unusual very skillfully made twisted neck. The Phoenix Glass Company was formed in 1880 in Monaca, Pennsylvania and like many other glass companies at that time, they initially thrived on the market for oil and gas lamp chimneys. Moving on to making lamps, globes, shades and electric light bulbs, they formed alliances with a number of glassworks and individuals who could bring specialist glassmaking skills to Phoenix. During the 1880's and 1890's they produced a large volume of coloured cut glass, etched glass, hand decorated glass, and fancy coloured art glass including spatter glass, such as mother-of-pearl satin glass which they patented in 1885. This may have been a genuine End of Day glassblower's piece for his own personal use or as something of a whimsey.
The interior of the neck is ground for a stopper, which is missing. It's in very good but not perfect condition;
spatter glass of this type often does show some smooth surface bubbling, but there is one surface bubble burst as can be seen in the last photo below that we note in the interest of accuracy, and there are 2 very small and hard to see chips at the edge of the base, possibly done in the making, easier to feel than to see, hard to photograph. It measures about 10 and 1/8 inches tall, with a greatest diameter of about 5 inches.
Please see photos, and let us know if you need more or need more information. We're offering this beauty with a starting offer of just $1.00 and , with FREE Shipping in the U.S.A. by USPS priority mail insured, with FREE insurance, too!
