    This Victorian glass vase is made from two layers of cased glass, shaded yellow over a white interior. It measures 14.3 cm tall, 8.5 cm across the crimped top rim, & 5 cm across the base, which has a rough, snapped pontil mark. The vase features raised enamelled decoration of stylised flowers & a bumble bee. I found this years ago in an op shop (thrift store) for only a few dollars. I think it is most likely Bohemian in origin, & maybe by the same maker as the previous yellow vase due to strong similarities in the colour & crimp.

      Lol I thought it was a palm tree. Nice painting?

      I agree, it is a curious looking flower! :-) The things below it look like sticks of bamboo...so who knows what they were thinking?

      I thought that was the garden fence.....but beautiful nonetheless.

      Maybe it is! :-)
      The tiny flowers made from dots are very familiar to me from the type of decoration seen on Victorian hand vases...but everything else is a little quirky!
