Heavy Vine, probably Rosice

Vases are known in two sizes: 5.75 inches and 8.5 inches. Curiously, both sizes of vases have two bands of the "Heavy Vine" motif.

Also known as Lady and as Balmoral.

This Czechoslovakian pattern is most easily identified by the line with geometric leaf shapes around the middle. While it was produced in crystal, quite a few shapes have turned up in carnival--all marigold, and mostly dresser set pieces. Shown here are a tumbleup, small cologne bottle, powder jar, ring tree and pin tray.

There are three sizes of "scent bottles." The smallest, 6 3/4 inches tall is often referred to as a perfume, the other two, 7 1/2 inches and 8 1/4 inches as cologne bottles. There is also an atomizer.

There are at least two sizes of covered powder jars, 3 inches wide, and 3 1/2 inches wide.

Tumblers are found in two sizes. The taller tumbler, 4 1/4 inches tall and 2 1/2 inches across the top, is the tumbler for the water set. The shorter tumbler, 3 7/8 inches tall and 3 1/2 inches across the top is the tumbler for the tumbleup.

Glen and Steve Thistlewood have discovered this pattern in the catalogue of the "unknown maker," which they now believe was probably Rosice. It was marketed as Balmoral and also as Lady. Read more about it on Carnival Glass Worldwide.

Hartung named the pattern Heavy Vine.

In June, 2004, Patricia Walther of Buenos Aires sent me the above photo of Heavy Vine pieces. They are a jug, four sizes of stemmed pieces, and a wine decanter.
In 2016 this water set sold for $100. It was noted that two tumblers had chips. Photo courtesy of Seeck Auctions.
