Helen Gould Souvenir Vase, Lyndhurst, c.1910

A beautifully decorated miniature vase, made in Germany, depicting Helen Gould’s grand conservatory at Lyndhurst.

At 390 feet long, made of iron and glass with a domed top, it was one of the largest private greenhouses in America.

Currently it lies in slight disrepair amidst the lush, landscaped lawns of Jay Gould’s mansion.
