French Art Deco yellow opaline glass globe vase
A French Art Deco opaline glass vase in lemon yellow, from around 1930.
This shade of yellow is very unusual and was achieved by adding tiny quantities of uranium to the glass mix. The result is very pretty.
It’s moulded in crisp relief with Art Deco geometric motifs.
Unsigned. Like many pieces of opaline glass from the 1930s, it’s hard to know who made this lovely vase, as there were many factories producing quality glass. Most have disappeared, taking their archives with them, possibly forever.
