As promised, here is my Burtles & Tate pressed glass wall pocket vase. It measures 19 cm long, & 8 cm across the opening of the pocket. It is made from a single layer of translucent, milky, bluish opalescent glass with an excellent "fire" as it catches the light. The wall pocket has the shape of a conch shell adorned with leaves & rustic twigs, which form the handle.
It is marked on the back Rd. 39807, & dates from 1885.
The firm of Burtles & Tate were located in Manchester, England.
As can be seen, this item has some damage but as it is so rare I could not pass it up.
