Victorian era, vase is blown of opaque opal coloured glass that has uranium content and is UV reactive. Glows neon green, as the last pic will show.
The interior is glossy and the exterior is satin finish. Four scissor cut pulls form a Jack in the Pulpit shaped rim. The JIP form is adapted after the woodland plant.
Each pull has on the interior a shaded stripe of pink or green coloured glass, and the edge of each pull is hand painted in gold. The exterior of the vase and on the green (JIP) pulls have a hand painted, Seaweed decor pattern done in tiny yellow Coralene glass beads.
The applied base has an organic, tree trunk form. Amber coloured, "pulls" are attached to the vase and the feet look like branches. Polished pontil on the bottom of bulbous shaped vase.
Attributed to Harrach, imo. Circa. 1880's. The markers, are the applied foot and the Seaweed decor pattern, as Harrach produced other examples with these decorative designs.
The rim is 5" wide, and the applied base is 4-1/4" diameter.
The bulbous part of the vase is 5" wide, at best.
