The Kew Blas brand was created for a line of iridescent glass produced from 1890 to 1924. The name is a scrambled spelling of the name of the factory manager at the time, W. The vase has a circular hollow base with a long thin stem leading up to a bulb-like bowl which has a flared rim. It has a very unique, lightly textured surface which kind of gives it an organic feel. Gold in color with beautiful hints of purple iridescent hues.
It has a polished pontil on the bottom side which is properly signed'KEW-Blas'. It is a large example measuring approx. 12¼ tall by 5 at widest. The vase is in excellent condition, free of any chips, cracks or repairs with very light age related wear.Upon close inspection, we did notice what appears to be a piece of pencil? Two inches long in the bottom. We tried to gently "jiggle" it out with no success... Decided to just leave it as is - very hard to see without holding it up to a bright light. This beautiful glass is reminiscent of prominent makers such as Tiffany, Quezal or Stueben and sitting next to a piece of either, it is extremely comparable. A wonderful piece of American Antique KEW Blas Art Glass! - - - - -.
