Victorian Celery Glass
03200901_victorian_celery_glass001001.jpg

Victorian Celery Glass

Whodathunkit??  Celery, those big green stalks of produce that a lot of people put peanut butter on today, were once considered a real delicacy because of the difficulty of growing the product.  Such a delicacy in fact, that during the Victorian Era, they had highly decorated and elaborately trimmed glass vases at the dinner table to put them in.  Those beautiful glass vases are called what else?  Celery glass, but are better referred to as celery glass vases.

In the mid-1800ís, celery glass vases were made of either beautiful cut glass or attractive pressed glass.  Most were intricately designed and made of many different and unusual patterns, lest they not be fit for the elegant dinner tables of the day.  Normally they are 8 to 13 inches tall, as well they should be able to accommodate celery stalks, and most will have a stem with a flat base. Celery vases were usually filled with cold water to keep the celery fresh and displayed the celery upright.

Today, celery glass is very collectible and can bring in thousands of dollars for fine Victorian examples.  However, be careful if it is stamped or stenciled with the word celery, which may not be Victorian at all, but made during WWII when there were restrictions on the use ofglass for anything other than practical items.  In addition, many companies later tried to reproduce celery glass.
