This curious item of Victorian glass caught my attention at a flea market around 17 years ago. Originally, it would have held a small posy vase, & I am still searching for an appropriate replacement. Constructed from 16 pale yellow - green uranium glass rods wired together, it measures 11 cm tall & 7.5 cm wide. It glows brightly under UV light.
The rods have a pressed pattern of three closely - spaced lines that spiral down their length, which creates an effect somewhat like candy canes. Unmistakably of English origin.
