This is the largest specimen of air trap satin glass that is in my collection. As can be seen, it has some issues, but don't we all in our own way?
It is made from two layers of cased glass - clear over lemon yellow. The air trap pattern is unusual, reminding me of a maze. The vase measures 29 cm tall, 16 cm across the crimped, jack - in - the - pulpit style top rim, & around 13 cm across the the footed base. There are three applied clear glass feet, which resemble seaweed in the way they climb wavily up the body of the vase.
The satin finish is silky smooth, & the top rim also has a clear applied crest.
Exuberantly Victorian, & perhaps of Bohemian manufacture?
