Old Glass Celery Vases


For Victorians celery was rare and expensive, even wealthy families considered it a luxurious treat. Stalks of the vegetable were presented in pressed glass vases filled with water to keep the celery fresh. Our Victorian and Edwardian examples are equally lovely for flowers.
The Chippendale celeries are trophy shaped with two handles - see Chippendale salts and jugs below to learn more.
Designs & sizes vary (approx H18cm)

The prominent 19th and 20th century manufacturers in this area included Davidson & Sowerby in Gateshead, Greener in Sunderland, Heppell in Newcastle and Edward Moore in South Shields amongst others.
They produced wide ranges of pressed glass products and different manufacturers are often identifiable by their designs, factory or registration marks. Sadly none of these manufacturers exist today but much of the old pressed glass we have on offer is their legacy.
