    This Victorian glass vase is made from clear glass with a band of opalescence around the neck. It has a ribbed pattern & applied Peloton threads in pink, blue, yellow, & white. The vase is mounted on a silverplate stand, which is simply marked EPNS. Measuring 21.5 cm tall, 8 cm across the double crimped top rim, & 9.5 cm across the base of the silverplate stand, it also has three applied twisted clear glass handles. The bottom of the vase is pegged, & cemented into the stand with plaster of Paris, in the manner of an epergne fitting.
    This vase was purchased in Bath, on my trip to England in 2003. When I spotted it towards the back of a display cabinet, I was ready to pay any price - & it only ended up costing me £15. No, I didn't even bother to haggle!
    Could it be English Peloton glass?

      Beautiful piece! I'm no expert but it sure looks like Peloton glass.

      Many thanks, courtenayantiques, yes, Peloton it definitely is, of a rather unusual form.

      Gorgeous! I love peloton glass but it so rarely comes up for sale when it does it sells for crazy money. You got a bargain!

      Thanks so much, Vintagefran! Yes, it was one of my best ever buys, & remains a lovely reminder of my first ever overseas trip, too.
