    I really don't have a clue what I have here. I didn't even know it was green until I unwrapped it at home. It was early in the morning and I was prowling the monthly swap meet (the one in the unlit parking structure) and happened to be walking by when this hit the table. It looked white at the time (to be fair, the whole ruffled top is opalescent) but the shape and decoration looked somewhat familiar. I asked the price and had to make the lady repeat herself I was so surprised. Now, I've spent most of the day trying to come up with a name to go with this vase. Obviously unsuccessfully. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    I don't really even know what to call it generically - a small rose bowl?; a large posy vase? It stands 4 3/8" (11.2 cm) tall and has the same 4 3/8" (11.2 cm) diameter across the top. As mentioned, the top is densely opalescent fading to transparency at the throat. The body is not really lobed but caned. The structure is more noticeable internally than externally. The tri-color spots have been applied on the exterior side of the canes. The underside has a raw, snapped pontil scar.

    And again, I would very much appreciate any guidance in knowing the maker of this piece.

      This is a pretty & unusual piece of Victorian art glass. I know I've seen something similar in one of my reference books, but as they're all packed away in boxes for a move at the moment I can't access them. However, I seem to recall a patent was issued by one of the major Stourbridge firms for a technique involving applied "beads"of glass as a form of decoration...possibly applied using a machine similar to the kind utilised for machine threading. Item could be blown out further, which made the threads break & contract, thus leaving regularly spaced "beads" of glass. So, my thoughts are that it could be English & around 1880s - 1890s. Nice find!
