This Victorian floriform vessel (I feel it is too shallow inside to be called a vase) is made from pale blue opalescent glass with an applied footed base in pale green uranium glass that glows under UV light. It measures 8 cm tall at the highest point, around 13 cm wide across the jack - in - the - pulpit shaped top rim, & 7.5 cm across the applied leaf shaped base.
I believe this to be of English origin due to the remarkable similarity between the leaf footed base & those seen on tulip vases by Richardson's. In fact I feel that this piece may be by Richardson's.
Found on the same flea market stall as the preceding vase.
