ANTIQUE PINK GLASS BOHEMIAN QUARKMAN MARY GREGORY VASE YOUNG BOY DESIGN This is an authentic Beautiful Quarkman Bohemian art glass vase.
A group of glassmakers from the region known as Bohemia (at the borders of Poland, Russia,& Austria (1850's) and now the Czech Republic), developed a unique method of glass decoration that was a somewhat similar look as relief cut Cameo Glass but much much less expensive to produce.
It was done in a single color (white) with an enamel that was loaded with ground glass (frit) to make it marshmallow thick so it would stand out in relief as a raised pattern that became part of the glass when refired.
It was called "Quarkman Glass" (White People glass) . Mary Gregory was a name given to the style in the 1920's.
It is in great used condition. Small chip to rim, no cracks, or scratches.
It is 5 inches tall, 2 1/2 inches base, 1 3/4 inches across the top. Glass is thin with air bubbles in the glass, it is light, with a sanded down smooth pontil on the bottom.
A stunning example for your collection.
