    I purchased this glass vase today for my home at an antique swap meet. I was especially attracted to the finely etched lines in the green glass and the overlay of the brown glass. Initially, I was put off by the gold flakes infused into the green glass, but after fondling the vase for a while, I realized it added to the character of the piece. The vase is 11 inches tall and a little bigger than 3 inches on the top. I would appreciate knowing more about the vase such as the country of origin and what this kind of vase it is and what the technique is called. I was told it is vintage.

    Pretty.
    It's cameo glass.
    Probably Chinese.
    Sorry, can't help with age. Might be early 1900s, might be yesterday.

    Haven't seen @Asian Fever, maybe she can read the mark.

    Peking glass with a spurious "Qianlong Nianzhi" mark (Made in the Qianlong years).

    Very interesting. I wasn't lead to believe that the were old but just that they took time to make.

    Thanks for the link. I found a similar vase with the green glass, gold flake and amber overlay claiming to be 19th century with the same mark. Not for an instant do I believe that my vase is anymore than a reproduction probably recent though the seller had all older items - not antique but not new either. So I thought vintage might be right. Nevertheless, I bought it because I thought it was beautiful so age isn't important except I am asking feedback from people on this site with knowledge about antiques\ vintage items.

    I'd guess, and since I know squat about Chinese glass guess is about the size of it, that this is pretty recent. It is however cat-approved, so who cares how old it is.

    You noticed. Nothing permanent gets in the door without it. :cat::cat::cat::cat::cat::cat:

    When I said not old I meant not Qianlong period, it probably is late 19th early 20th century possibly older. I’d have no problem calling it antique, I wouldn’t call it a reproduction.
    I’d look on the web for a site that isn’t selling Peking glass but teaching the history.

    Thank you very much. I'll do that. Not knowing anything has me scattered. I'll focus.

    I'm so glad I found you all. I followed up with @anundverkaufen recommendation and found several Peking glass vases with the same incised curved design in the glass and the gold flake. They are all attributed to the 19th century. The incising in the green glass is imperfect and varies, so can I assume it was done by hand?
