|While these 7-inch tall vases are listed as Idyll, they're really part of the Waterlily and Cattails family. They're quite rare. I photographed this one at a 1993 auction where it brought $600. There are several known in marigold and one ruffled example in amethyst.
In 2008, an example with a turned in top sold for $1,100. In marigold.
In 2017, a flared out marigold example sold for $2,100.
|Among the few Idyll vases known is this ruffled one in amethyst that sold in 2009. It brought just $450, no doubt because it is cracked around the bottom. |
