This Victorian vase is made from a single layer of opaque pale grey glass. It measures 26 cm tall, 8.8 cm across the top rim, & 9.3 cm across the base. The vase features enameled decoration of flowers, leaves, & a butterfly.
This was a $1 flea market find about 20 years ago...I think it was my first example of this type of enameled Victorian glass. I recall spotting it from quite a distance away, with only the back showing...except one tiny snippet of a painted branch was peeking around the edge of the vase & I realised that it must have decoration. What a lovely surprise it was when I picked up the vase & saw the bold & colourful enamel work. The price was pretty sweet as well!
Most likely Bohemian origin.
