This Victorian glass rose bowl has led a long & interesting double life - having been at some point converted into a "make - do" pincushion.
It is made from pale blue cased glass, with applied decoration of leaves in clear glass encircling the middle, as well as clear applied feet.
The rose bowl measures 10 cm tall, 5.5 cm across the crimped, turned in top rim, & 8.5 cm across the footed base.
The pincushion appears as though it was added some time ago, as the plush - type fabric, & decorative ric - rac trim look rather vintage. As do the pins.
Probably Bohemian origin, & a fun flea market find.
