This is a fine example of Autumnal Ware type art glass, gifted to me by a very special CW member - the marvelous MALKEY!
What a pleasant suprise it was this morning to find a mystery parcel on my doorstep...so exciting to unwrap, & reveal this gorgeous piece of Victorian glass that fits so perfectly in my collection.
It is made from opaque ivory coloured glass, which contains uranium & glows intensely under UV light. The jug shaped vase measures around 11.5 cm tall, 12.5 cm across the double crimped, four way top rim, & 8.5 cm across the base, which has a neatly polished out pontil mark. There is an applied acanthus leaf in amber & pink, with the stem forming a handle. An applied amber crest finishes off the top rim to perfection.
Pretty sure this one is of Stourbridge origin.
Thanks again, MALKEY, you are a champion among collectors & people in general.
