This Victorian vase is made from three layers of cased glass - clear over brown Peloton threads, with a white interior. It measures 15.5 cm tall, 11 cm across the crimped top rim, & 7.7 cm across the base, which has a polished out pontil mark. The vase also has two clear, applied handles, which have a lumpy texture (not quite thorny).
This was today's flea market find, & would have to rank up there with my all time best buys. Peloton glass in itself is rare enough, but this type with brown threads is even more so - I have never encountered a piece for sale, & only knew of it from a photo in an old reference book. So, you can imagine my delight when I spotted it...& yes, it was a very modest price, too. :-)
I think most likely Bohemian origin.
