Sub Categories : Art Glass, American, Royal Flemish
Heavily decorated Royal Flemish vase with winged dragon (Griffin) as focal design. Obverse side decorated with mythological beast head. SIZE: 7-1/2” t. Royal Flemish is generally considered to be the top of the line when it comes to Mount Washington glass. The line was first advertised in 1889, but not patented until 1894. Almost all Royal Flemish patterns are decorated with at least some gold gilt. Most pieces will also have maroon as one of the dominant colors. Collectors value Royal Flemish so highly because of the craftsmanship and details that went into each piece. The artists at Mount Washington had to hand decorate each article. Most Royal Flemish ware is not marked. When attempting to identify an authentic example, you just have to look for quality work. Some pieces are marked on occasion. The mark is pictured to the right. One mark is a backwards R and an F, which of course stands for Royal Flemish. Some items could still have an original paper tag. Others could have a handwritten number. That number should correlate to the shape number as assigned by Mount Washington. A vase exactly like this one was auctioned at Julia's spring 2004 glass auction bringing $4312.00 CONDITION: excellent
