    This large Victorian vase is made from two layers of cased glass, white with a deep pink interior. It measures 29 cm tall, 16.5 cm across the double crimped top rim, & 12 cm across the applied footed base. The vase has applied decoration of a zigzag branch with leaves & a trumpet shaped flower in amber glass, with the three footed base having the appearance of stylised leaves. There is also an applied amber crest on the top rim.
    Unlike much glass of this type, this vase does not contain any uranium.
    I feel that it is most likely Bohemian, although similar items were made in England.

      This is beautiful! It's just crazy how so much glass has lasted so long over the years in such perfect condition! Very nice.

      Many thanks, shareurpassion! Yes, that such pieces have endured the years continues to astonish me, too...very grateful that they have!

      IronLace, WOW! What a beauty, and HUGE! Too bad in the photograph, it doesn't look that big. It's one that must look even greater in person. You're very lucky to have it! :^)

      Beautiful.....and such fine detail on the applied leaves.

      Thanks, billretirecoll, yes, sometimes things can look a little smaller in photos...I may have to take a comparison photo of this one with another even bigger vase with applied flowers I have in my collection...

      Thanks also, sklo42! Yes, there is such wonderful attention to detail on these applied pieces, & so many variations...I was very taken by the applied feet, which are quite different.

      Huuge! And gorgeous!
      I love the three feet on the round base, very cool.

      It is indeed an impressive piece, very happy to have found it! Just about my favourite type of glass... :-)

      Very nice piece to have in any collection. Looks very much like a Stevens and Williams vase.
