DESCRIPTION

Antique late-19th Century Spectacular Japanese Meiji period Loetz blown glass vase with raised endless loops under an iridized silver blue finish, overlaid with an elaborate design of silver gilt scrolls mounted with finely enameled blossoms including lilies, lotus and hanging wisteria, the base signed with Japanese characters for Muneaki (possibly by Kozanbo Muneaki, Ishikawa Musaburo of the Kozan workshop) and stamped "G.T.Marsh and Co."

The venerable San Francisco firm of G.T. Marsh & Co, was founded in 1876 by Gorge Turner Marsh. Born in Richmond, Australia, Marsh was fifteen when his family decided to immigrate to the United States on a route that included a stop in Japan. Enamored of the country, he was able to persuade his family to let him stay in Yokohama where his father secured him a position at a tea import/export firm. Joining his family in San Francisco a few years later, he used his experience and enthusiasm to open one of the first Asian art galleries in the United States, the aforementioned G.T.Marsh & Company: Japanese Art Repository. During the 1930's, while specializing in Asian antiques and art, the firm started producing their own unique stylized jewellery. Most distinct was their combination of oxidized steel with traditional Asian materials such as pearl, coral and jade.
