    I'm not certain as to whether this is British, Czech, or American in origin, but when I spotted it at a charity thrift shop with a $3 price tag on it, I scooped it up. I suspect by the style that it could be potentially late Victorian or certainly Pre WWII. The glass in unmarked, and stands about 8" tall. An inner layer of ribbed white glass has been cased over with a satin finished yellow glass, and the bottom third of the vessel has been blown to a bulbous shape. There is no pontil mark visible on the base, and the top has been cut and ground smooth. I thought I would post it and see if my glass pals would like to have some fun speculating as to the era and possible makers. Right now, I would hazaed a guess of being British and Edwardian - but I am by no means an expert.

      I already got in trouble for trading my mom's cow for some magic beans ;-P blunderbuss! I was thinking maybe Pairpoint for an attribution - anybody?

      I think these are all difficult. Anyone else's thoughts much appreciated.

      Thank you Rick - any ideas on who might have made it? I guess too generic Victorian - I may never know.

      The ribbed optical effect is somewhat similar... http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/206579-bermuda-onion-bottle

      I have a near identical vase in pink. Yours was a really great thrift find at $3! My pink one was part of a window display in a vintage clothing store, & was "not for sale"... but I used a little friendly persuasion of the sales assistant & was able to make it mine. I think this style of glass is in the ballpark of a type known as "cut velvet", which is satin glass with a ribbed (or quilted) surface pattern. Some cut velvet has very pronounced ribs or quilting but this type is more blended in.

      Thank you Iron Lace... first time I've hear the term "cut velvet". Cheers! - Bob
