Antique Bulb Vase, Hyacinth Vase, Boston and Sandwich Glass, Amethyst Purple
The antique hyacinth bulb vase was made in the late 1800’s (circa 1870). Bulb forcing was popular in the Georgian and Victorian eras. I am pretty sure this was made at the Boston and Sandwich Glass Factory but I can’t be 100% sure. It is a deep amethyst purple and perfect for forcing bulbs of all kinds – hyacinths, paper whites etc. Perfect for giving your place a burst of Spring in weary winter months! A fabulous piece for a glass collector!
