Here we have Victorian rose bowl, blown of cased glass in three coloured layers. Interior is opal white with an overlay of a translucent custard coloured glass. Exterior is pink. Glass is completely glossy, not satin. Where the pontil mark would be on the bottom of the rose bowl, is a colourless crystal applied prunt with a flower stamp in center. There is three applied claw style feet to serve as the base and each are cut and polished on the bottom with a slight beveled edge. Glows neon green under a black light.

3-1/2" tall. 4-1/2" wide.

The last pic is an advertisement from Mappin and Webb (British Retailer) from 1894. Look at #140 to confirm the shape.

Thank you, Scottvez for adding John Walsh Walsh as a strong possibility.

    HEH, HEH, how do you know the retailer was NOT selling Czech Victorian?

    Thanks, Lee for the compliment.

    @Al, I do have another 1884 retail catalog page from Mappin & Webb, London. The examples are pink with yellow custard. I'll send it to you. Overall, for now - I don't believe the examples in the catalog page to be Bohemian and going with British until something else comes up.

    If I can find anything as a comparison to share, look at this link of a S&W Matsunoke Vase, you will notice the colour to be blue - opal white and yellow custard. 1884, is the same year Stevens & Williams registered Fredrick Carder's design, Matsu-no-ke. Many British companies were also producing (applied) flowers and insects during this time. Harrach was also doing the same to cater to the English market. So I do understand with looking at the catalog page, why you would mention, Czech Victorian.

    Scroll down the page to view, btw.

    Good work, Scott. I would definitely say it's a match. Thank you for looking into it and will revise the posting. The other vase that is pictured with the rose bowl from the link, I have the 1884 Mappen and Webb advertisement also for this shape. The colour is also a perfect match as well. If you like, send me an email and I will be happy to show you, Scott.
