This Victorian vase is made from pale yellow green uranium glass which glows brightly under UV light. Blown in a patterned mould, it has an opalescent pattern of swirling stripes alternating with bands of short dashes. It measures 12 cm tall, 7 cm across the fire polished, opalescent top rim, & 6 cm across the base, which has a rough, snapped pontil mark. A few minor imperfections, or "seeds" are visible in the glass. Of a rounded, four sided form, it also features pushed in sides. I'm fairly certain it is English.
