Welcome to Antiques & Moore! This listing is for an amazing 19th Century French Empire tall, slender Baccarat crystal vase elaborately mounted with an ornate gilded pierced design.
The design at the base and lower section of the vase features an ornate molded design with swags and flowers with an urn standing a the top. The top design features an embossed band around the top edge with a hanging swag and floral design below on one side.
The crystal vase is formed with a ribbed design down the slender body that extends outward at the bottom with raised ribs that form a slightly scalloped base. The vase is unmarked, however, it has all the characteristics of Baccarat glass from this period. The vase is in very good to excellent Estate condition with no significant flaws. There is one internal fracture to the inside upper rim of the glass that is covered by the ormolu on the outside and can't be felt on the inside and is only noticed upon very close inspection (see photos).
The gilt ormolu is in excellent condition with only minor wear commensurate with age. Measures an incredible 19 3/4" high with a 2 3/4" wide top (at widest point) and a 4 7/8 base (at widest point).
