This beautiful and graceful blue milk glass emergency stands about 14 tall and comes apart in 2pieces, with brass fittings. The French Glass Company, Portieux, is stamped on the base. The design of, Chimeras, mythical dragon/serphent is on the base and rises to a flair at the top. It was made at the turn of the century, and the brass fittings have much to do with its longevity.
No need to worry about leaning or falling trumpet! At its widest, it is 10 across.
And the top of the base piece is 7: the trumpet is 8 tall and 5 across at the flair. So the total height is about 14.
It is hard to measure exactly. The brass fittings are in excellent condition and easy to screw and unscrew. It is in excellent shape, there is no damage that I could find. It could use a good cleaning. Please look at the pictures for a better understanding of its condition.
There are no chips, scraps, missing pieces, marks or omissions. It is very pretty and unusual, would make a great centerpiece with or without flowers!
