This Victorian glass hanging basket on a rustic thorn stand was purchased in 2004. At the time, the blue basket had some rather ugly painted "decoration" for want of a better word. I was certain that it wasn't original to the item, & so I tested a bit to see if it would come off - turns out it had been "painted" with liquid paper! I could smell the distinctive odour of it as I scraped it off. Why would someone do that?
The clear glass stand with rustic thorns measures 22 cm tall & 9 cm across the base, which has an embossed daisy pattern.
The basket is made from cased glass - blue over a white interior. It measures 10 cm tall including the applied clear handle & around 5 cm across the petal shaped top rim.
I'm fairly certain this piece of of English origin.
