    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.

      I couldn't agree more! :-)
      I'd not seen anything quite like it...so it had to be mine!

      It's so gracefully shaped!

      It looks like a pressed glass base, with handwork on top and bottom ? Its very nice. Maybe it is a salt of some sort. Nouveauish.
    5. rockbat, 4 years ago
      maybe not pressed on base, but pinched ?

      Many thanks, racer! Yes, it definitely has a fluidity of form to it.
    7. IronLace IronLace, 4 years ago
      The base is uses a technique related to pincerwork, & is definitely not machine pressed. The leaves are formed with a specialised tool & then attached. There were a lot of items from this 1880s - 1890s period which served no other purpose than to be decorative, & many of them had plant - like forms, certainly in the Art Nouveau style.

      These are the Richardson tulips which have near - identically constructed leaf footed bases.
