Hi all,
Style is known as a 'jack in the pulpit' or JIP vase.
Approx 6" high. I think its English but don't know who by. It has a very rough & burnt pontil.
I love how the uranium can alter its colour so drastically, from almost glowing white, greens and blues (which don't show well in photos), to yellows and golds depending on the light. Lovely.
Thank you

    Thank you for the love and comments everyone.
    I'm glad people like it as much as i do.
    HW, the colors are amazing, i had no idea it would look like this, and you're right, it looks better in real life than pictures. The sellers ebay pictures did it even less justice.
    Its great when getting something from ebay turns out nicer than you'd imagined.
    This cost more than I'd hoped (2 other bidders also appreciated it) but in my eyes it was worth every penny & a bargain:)

    This was glowing white at me this morning, i just had to take a picture. Excuse the mess around it.

    I wonder, can anyone tell me if this is 'Vaseline' glass, as it is in its strictest sense?
    Or would it be known as opaque Vaseline glass?
    Not that it really matters what it is, but its nice to know & i always like to learn.
    Thank you

    How did I miss this, it's beautiful.
    It changes colour like a chameleon!

    Thanks Walksoftly.
    It continues to surprise me. When i first saw it glowing white it so took me aback. The colours change constantly with different light conditions.

    Hello Vintagefran I don't know how I missed this beautiful vase and yes it is a Jack in the Pulpit vase and as far as being 'Vaseline glass' here is the link to Welzebub's latest will help you understand what is what!...:-)

    I prefer the plain version.....It's Lovely
  11. Vintagefran Vintagefran, 6 months ago
    Hi Nuts, by plain do you mean without UV? i agree with you on this one, its colours are always changing. Mind you it looks cool under UV too:)
  12. nutsabotas6 nutsabotas6, 6 months ago
    Yes without the UV.
