The firm soon fell into hard times and closed down in 1931. Douglas hired on with the Libbey Glass Co and was responsible for many fine art glass lines the company marketed going forward.
During the short time the Nash company operated, it produced a number of very attractive patterns and art glass examples. Some pieces exhibit the Nash name on the bottom but not all examples are marked. A unsigned vase, it displays the wide band opalescent pattern with the entire surface covered in an iridescent finish.It has a clear base contrasting the opalescent pattern. The rim exhibits a very striking stretch glass appearance occurring during the application of the iridescent formula. In the center of the clear glass base a polished pontil can be viewed. Again, this example has no signature yet when placed next to a signed bowl, the two pieces appear almost identical.
The vase measures 5" tall and 4 1/8" across the top, rim to rim. Thorough examination reveals no chips, cracks, damage or repairs. I will mention and as pictured a dark inclusion in the glass visible in the clear base.
This occurred during the production but does not detract from the beauty of this example. Having been in operation for only a few short years, Nash art glass seldom surfaces in the marketplace today. A very fine example to fill that perfect spot in your art glass collection.Please view all pictures as they are considered part of the description. Please check back to my listings often as I will be posting numerous fine examples of glass, pottery and porcelain in the near future.
