As I love English glass, this appealed to me . It came in the holder shown but I know it does not belong. Why put something with feet in a holder that probably required glass with a rigaree or made to sit secure in the frame.
The holder was made by Sanders & Aquilar 1898-1903 and they worked in London and Birmingham. It looks more like it was meant to be a holder for something like a sugar bowl. It is 15 1/2 cm from handle to handle, 9 1/4 cm to the top of the handle. The glass 10 1/2 w x 7 1/2 cm high.
The glass. British I think and the style with the feet like that I believe is called rustic. Any thoughts on the manufacturer? Does it conform to a known maker or colour or the way it was made. ? I hope maybe to pin age and possible maker down with the help of everyone here.

    It's beauty is greater when standing alone. It is such a gorgeous colour and those feet...ooh la la!

    Thank you racer, the colour is even better in the flesh and luckily the feet do not even have any nibbles. Maybe living in the stand has protected it from damage over the years.
    Thanks also vetraio50

    I was thinking yours could be by Thomas Webb also...suppose you've looked in that direction and or even maybe Walsh & Walsh...:-)

    It is hard to tell from photos inky, from what I gather Webb marked a lot if his pieces. It is a shame we do not have more catalogues or more glass makers did not sign their work. It would make it much easier for us. Still, I appreciate the work that went into it.

    Couldn't agree more about them marking their glass, but! then on the other hand we would be paying top $$$ for the hidden treasures we find...with yours though! we know it was one of the top houses that made it, just look at the fines and beauty of it!!...and I think that basket makes so much sense, it meant it could be used safely without chipping it..fantastic..I love it!...:-)
