The American Brilliant Period was a high point in American cut glass. Jewelers were hired to hand cut the patterns with copper grinding wheels. This is a large, lead crystal vase in excellent condition. It is 12 1/4 inches tall and 6 1/2 to 7 inches wide at the top (measured at the narrowest and the widest). It has been authenticated by two appraisers. One of them CAGA certified. We haven't found any marks, but one of the appraisers attributed it to Hawkes, Pairpoint or Tiffin. As far as we can tell, there are no chips or other damage to this piece. There is a very small amount of wear on the base. We've found a couple of small bubbles in the glass, which is to be expected in a piece this old. It's amazing how it looks in the light. A photograph can't capture it.
