    This large Victorian rainbow spangle glass vase measures 24 cm tall, 14 cm across the double crimped top rim & 7.8 cm across the base.
    It is made from three layers of cased glass - clear over pink, blue & yellow stripes with silver mica inclusions, with a white interior.
    The crimped top also has a clear crest on the edge. Rough snapped pontil mark underneath. This was sold as American art glass - Hobbs Brockunier - but I think it is more likely Bohemian.
    I have said before that I'm trying not to buy any more large vases but how could I resist? :-) I have always wanted a really impressive specimen of rainbow spangle glass & this fits the bill. I do have some other rainbow spangle pieces but they are spatter rather than stripes. Anyway, it is now rubbing shoulders with my Welz yellow frit vase, another larger than life piece.

      Looks good enough to eat - strawberry, banana & blueberry flavoured, perhaps? :-)

      What a gorgeous vase! The colors are so bright and defined - really wonderful. And I agree with Karen - like candy! (Do you have Skittles in Australia?) :)

      Many thanks Michelle! Yes we have Skittles...A lot of my glass has candy colours. So much Victorian glass looks like fanciful confectionery!
