    This Whimsy Gold Crest Vase is 6 inches tall.
    It also has hand decorated leaves and a pink flower.
    I did find one on ebay that indicates it is vaseline glass though I've not tried a black light yet.
    Very different. Would love to know it's age.

      This is not fenton.

      The style was made by many glassworks in the Stourbridge area of England as well as Bohemian glassworks.

      These were popular in the very late 19th to early 20th century.

      Thank you Scott.
      How do I find out more?

      firstly, what a beautiful jug. secondly what made you think it was Fenton, is this something you had be told?
      I'm quite interested in what this one is so when you find out, will be good.
      I know there are many helpful ppl in here, some who will possibly able to help you, those who specialise is this type of glass...
      thank you for sharing...

      Its a beauty knuttle. I'd have guessed English but I'm not an expert. Do you know if its uranium glass like this? You would never know it to look at it without a UV light.

      I just noticed the trim on yours looks the same colour to mine. An unusual colour i thought, not quite amber but not quite green either..:-S

      Oops, i should've read your description before commenting, lol.
      I wouldn't mind betting it is uranium:)

      If you look up "Stevens and Williams art glass" on ebay you will find many similar examples. Many glass collectors/ dealers refer to anything with applied glass flowers as Stevens and Williams.

      The flower floret versus a free formed flower would make me think English Stourbridge. The floret flower was PART of the Matsu No Ke process that was patented by Stevens and Williams, although their florets had more petals.

      In my experiences, the Bohemian examples are more often found with free form flowers.

      Thank you for all the input.
      I was just not familiar with this style, my first thought were Fenton.
      Unfortunately, it is not uranium glass, doesn't glow.
      Scott pointed me in the right direction-Stevens & Williams Glassworks.
      I have found many similar, many going for hundreds while not perfect.
      I believe it's considered milk glass, any comments Scott?
      Still attempting to find it's age.

      Hi knutte1, its not uranium, ah well, just shows you can't always tell. I only found out mine was by accident while using UV on depression glass. It was a complete surprise to see it glowed green, no indication it would do that in daylight at all. I'd say Victorian for yours but when exactly i don't know, hopefully more experienced collectors will know:)

      I'm no expert in the slightest but after saying i thought it was English, I'm not so sure now. The flowers, custard or milk glass & trim all look like Stevens & Williams type things but i thought the shape of this was unusual. I'm watching this thread in hope of learning more:)
