This Victorian Peloton glass vase is made from two layers of cased glass - clear over mauve - pink, shading to white. It has a ribbed pattern & applied Peloton threads in pink, blue, yellow, & white. Measuring 12 cm tall, 11 cm across the fan shaped crimped top rim, & 7.5 cm across the base, it has a rough snapped pontil mark underneath.
This is the first in a selection of Peloton items in this distictive mauve - pink shade - they must be all by the same maker, as they have numerous aspects in common. My gut feeling is that these pink items may be of English origin - I think all of them have been purchased from the UK bar one or two examples. Another, to come, was found in Australia.
