    This Victorian era vase is made from two layers of cased glass - a pale translucent salmon pink over a milky white translucent interior. It has a ribbed pattern, the top is cut & polished & there is a rough snapped pontil mark on the base. It measures 10 cm tall, 6 cm across the top rim & 6.5 cm across the base. Possibly Bohemian in origin.

      Thanks so much welzebub! Yes, pink glass is my favourite & the opalescence just adds that extra touch of delicate prettiness! I found this at a flea market last week & picked it up immediately, the pink caught my eye from a long way off....& the stallholder was packing up so if I'd been 5 minutes later I probably would have missed out.

      This is so elegant! You know, I suspect it may be an early Loetz piece...take a look at image 36.05 in's Early Loetz article. It seems very close to the body of the piece to me. But however made it, it is a beauty!

      Wow, what a fascinating article! So much utterly divine Victorian glass! And - my vase does seen to have some aspects in common with image 36.05, the ribbing & soft pink colour - it's almost like my vase is a simpler, undecorated version of it. Cool!
