The applied leaves are amber glass with splashes of ruby red. Three different coloured rosettes are opaques glass in yellow, cream-beige and pink. Each rosette has a swirling mix of opaque white. The rosette blooms are mould-blown with six petals. The center of each rosette has an applied "dot" of amber glass. Polished pontil on the bottom of the low footed base.
3-1/2" x 2-1/2" diameter rim.
Low footed base is 3-1/2" diameter.
6-1/4" wide at best.
Originally attributed to Hogetts, Richardson & Sons by (author on Victorian British Glass) Cyril Mannley which information has evolved since then and this ewer is from Harrach or even Loetz, as both were producing this applied rosette design
