Sowerby Glass Vase. This is a vintage Sowerby Glass Vase in the Piasa Bird pattern. This vintage vase is opalescent blue in color and measures about 11 inches tall. This vases were made at the turn of the century and we believe this vase to be from the early 1900s.
At the end of the 1800ís Libbey Glass Company hired Joseph Locke from the Cambridge Glass Company. In 1883, he patented amberina glass. This Victorian Era glass is distinctive in its colors. Gold was mixed with the molten glass to produce stunning reds and oranges that tapered into a fine amber color. Other companies, including Blenko, Fenton, Boyd and Kanawha later received licenses from Libbey to produce amberina art glass pieces.
