Finding the Right vases for You

Whether it’s a Chinese Han dynasty glazed ceramic wine vessel, a work of Murano glass or a hand-painted Scandinavian modern stoneware piece, a fine vase brings a piece of history into your space as much as it adds a sophisticated dynamic. 

Like sculptures or paintings, antique and vintage vases are considered works of fine art. Once offered as tributes to ancient rulers, vases continue to be gifted to heads of state today. Over time, decorative porcelain vases have become family heirlooms to be displayed prominently in our homes — loved pieces treasured from generation to generation.

The functional value of vases is well known. They were traditionally utilized as vessels for carrying dry goods or liquids, so some have handles and feature an opening at the top (where they flare back out). While artists have explored wildly sculptural alternatives over time, the most conventional vase shape is characterized by a bulbous base and a body with shoulders where the form curves inward.

Owing to their intrinsic functionality, vases are quite possibly versatile in ways few other art forms can match. They’re typically taller than they are wide. Some have a neck that offers height and is ideal for the stems of cut flowers. To pair with your mid-century modern decor, the right vase will be an elegant receptacle for leafy snake plants on your teak dining table, or, in the case of welcoming guests on your doorstep, a large ceramic floor vase for long tree branches or sticks — perhaps one crafted in the Art Nouveau style — works wonders.

Interior designers include vases of every type, size and style in their projects — be the canvas indoors or outdoors — often introducing a splash of color and a range of textures to an entryway or merely calling attention to nature’s asymmetries by bringing more organically shaped decorative objects into a home.

On 1stDibs, you can browse our collection of vases by material, including ceramic, glass, porcelain and more. Sizes range from tiny bud vases to massive statement pieces and every size in between.

Questions About Swung Glass Vase
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 27, 2024
    A swung vase is a vase produced with a unique glassblowing technique. To produce a swung vase, a glassblower holds the glass at the end of the blow pipe and then uses a tool to swing the glass, causing it to grow longer. The end result is a vase with a flared bottom, a long neck and an irregularly shaped mouth. On 1stDibs, find a variety of glass vases.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMay 5, 2023
    To tell if you have a swung vase, first examine the seam along the body. On swung vases, this seam is usually more prominent near the base and becomes fainter and fainter as it travels upward toward the neck. Also, swung vases tend to have irregularly shaped pinched or dipped openings. Find a collection of swung vases on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    A fluted glass vase is an open-topped decorative vessel made out of glass that has a finely ribbed surface. People often use fluted vases as standalone decorations and for arranging flowers. On 1stDibs, find a variety of vintage and antique glass vases.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    To date glass vases, search for a maker's mark, usually located on the bottom of the piece. Find the marking on an authoritative online resource and use details about the style of the vase to estimate the age. A licensed appraiser can help you date unmarked vases. Shop a collection of expertly vetted antique and vintage glass vases on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 22, 2024
    Glass vases are typically made by glass-blowing. Although techniques vary, glass-blowing generally involves heating glass components to very high temperatures to liquefy them. Then, artisans blow air into the glass through a long tube to shape it. On 1stDibs, shop a diverse assortment of glass vases from some of the world's top sellers.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMarch 31, 2023
    To tell if a Murano glass vase is real, look for the name of the shop that produced it on the bottom. Then, use trusted online resources to determine if the workshop is in Murano, Italy. Bear in mind that authentic pieces normally do not have the word "Murano" on their labels. If you need assistance authenticating a particular vase, you may wish to enlist the help of a certified appraiser or experienced antique dealer. Shop a collection of Murano glass vases on 1stDibs.
