    This Victorian vase is made from pink glass with a fine lattice pattern & an applied circlet of uranium yellow leaves around the top. It measures 28.5 cm tall, 13.5 cm across the top rim, & 8 cm across the base, which has a rough snapped pontil mark. I'm fairly certain this is Bohemian.
    I remember when I bought this at an antiques fair, it had a very high asking price (in my opinion). I kept coming back to look at it, spent a lot of time & effort negotiating a more reasonable price. I actually find haggling pretty stressful, but I managed it eventually! It was getting late, around packing up time, & I think that helped with getting the price down.

      Oh!.. that's really spooky, I was just looking at one very much like this lovely one of yours...and thinking how fantastic it was...I just love the pink...:-)

      Many thanks, inky...& I know what you mean about spooky coincidences with glass - so many times I have had situations where I'd see something online or in a book, & then find the same type of item pop up at a flea market. Sometimes things also seem to turn up all at once, or even at times I'd be thinking about something & I'd find it somewhere...it's the magic of glass, I guess!

      Yes!.. I know exactly the thing..I believe you will at some time always come across something that is on your wish list at the price that fits your budget..I do often..the fun of it all...:-)

      This is wonderful, like something from The Great Barrier Reef.
      I can't believe those fantastic petals have survived. Your photos as usual shoe the glass beautifully! Kudos all round.
      Inky, I hope you find one soon!

      I completely agree, inky, collecting is filled with serendipity, chance & luck - & fun most of all! I do hope you can find your own example of this vases, too!

      Thanks so much, racer4four! Yes, I too am amazed at the survival of this piece, it is perfect. Unlike many other pieces I have with applied decoration...
      For example, I found a nice pink vase with an applied petal top (not quite as spectacularas this one, but still quite showy) in an op shop - one of the petals had been broken in the shop - it was sitting alongside the vase. So frustrating to think it had survived all those years, only to get damaged by a careless browser in Vinnie's!
      Anyway, it was cheap, & I glued the broken bit back on...will get a photo of it posted sometime...I think it might be by Kralik.
      And I definitely won't let my shoes anywhere near this one, I promise! :-)
