    This Victorian glass vase was an op shop (thrift store find). Made from cased glass, it has a pink ribbed exterior over a white interior. The entire vase has a satin finish & the ribs are a deeper shade of pink than the rest of the vase. It measures 13.5 cm tall, 6 cm across the jack in the pulpit shaped top rim, & 4 cm across the base. This type of satin glass with raised patterns is often referred to as "cut velvet" glass, & seems to be attributed to various countries of origin - America, England & Bohemia. Like most Victorian fancy glass, it is probable that it was made by numerous manufacturers. This instantly became one of my favourites & set off a hunt for more examples of cut velvet glass...I enjoy the dual textures at play in these, the satin finish combined with raised ribs or quilting.

      I agree - the textural change is wonderful! I would love to hold this.

      Thanks so much, racer4four - yes, it is wonderfully tactile. Hoping to find more examples!

      I love the raised ribbing on this. I've not seen these in real life (it's another I'm looking out for:), i have smooth examples but no ridged.

      Many thanks, Vintagefran! This was the first example I'd encountered, then I soon happened upon more...funny how that can happen...
