Vintage Italian Art Glass Soda Fountain Apothecary Straw Jar / Stick Candy Jar For Sale
VINTAGE GREEN ITALIAN OPTIC ART GLASS APOTHECARY SODA FOUNTAIN STRAW JAR / STICK CANDY JAR with LID
GORGEOUS old GREEN Italian optic art glass APOTHECARY SODA FOUNTAIN STRAW JAR / STICK CANDY JAR WITH LID / COVER. Glassmaker is unknown, and my best guess of age would be ca. 1950-60's, mid-century, perhaps from an old soda fountain or general store counter. I am sure this is Italian art glass. Martha Stewart Living Magazine devoted an article to this type of mid-century glass in the May 2011 issue. She's a lovely old jar done in a highly optic pattern. A lovely shade of SPRING GREEN (by the way, the snow in the photos is now thankfully GONE!) A delightful piece for your buffet or countertop. An ideal gift for your collector Mom this Mother's Day! :-)
SIZE: 11" TALL to the tip of the lid finial. She measures 3-1/8" diameter at the mouth and stands on a 3-3/4" diameter foot...with just a little wobble/wiggle in her seat. I love the foot on this one!
EXCELLENT CONDITION! NO CRACKS! NO CHIPS! The glass is a transparent SPRING GREEN color and she just SPARKLES. There are some pinpoint-sized bubbles, typical of blown glass. She has a little bit of light, fine scratching ... not noticeable without a close examination and best seen by holding up to bright light. There is a tooling mark on the under side of the finial...not easily seen. She's an amazing jar ... You won't be disappointed, she's an absolute TREASURE!
