Stuart Medallion Cameo Glass

Back to: British Glass

 In 1887 the firm of Stuart Crystal patented the idea of 'Medallion Cameo', described in the Pottery Gazette as

'the latest Art production for this season, a most delicate and entirely novel effect in Vases, Bowls and Scent Bottles etc., etc.'

c.f. British Glass 1800-1914, Charles R. Hajdamach, 1991 pgs 231-233 for notes on Stuart cameo glass.

In the 'Language of Flowers' a fuchsia represents 'good taste'.
