This Victorian vase is made from two layers of cased glass - opaque white over a deep pink interior. The white contains uranium & glows brightly under UV light. The largest example of applied glass in my collection, it measures 34.5 cm tall, 14.5 cm across the double crimped top rim, & 10 cm across the base, which has a polished out pontil mark. There is applied decoration in amber of oak leaves, branches, & acorns. The acorns are rather small in proportion the leaves. The top rim also has an applied amber crest. Could be English or Bohemian.
