Footnotes

  • The present pair of vases was made after the models currently in the collection of the Corning Museum of Glass, New York and at the State History Museum, Moscow. Both were attributed to the Imperial Glass factory in St. Petersburg and date to the first half of the XIX century. Swan-shaped handles were frequently used as a motif during the Empire period and can be found on many mounts of the glass vases from that period.
