    All I can say is when I saw this, it made my day! :-)
    A large Victorian vase, made from three layers of cased glass - clear over pale, shaded green, with a white interior. It measures 31 cm tall, 14 cm across the double crimped top rim, & 10 cm across the base, which has a polished out pontil mark. The vase features applied decoration of branches & leaves in amber & green glass, two applied flowers in pink & white, as well as a pair of red cherries. There is an applied crest in pale amber on the crimped top rim.
    My first example of this type of glass that has both flowers & fruit, also my only piece on a green ground...all the others are on white or pink, generally.
    Could be either English or Bohemian.
