    Picked up this strange piece the other day. The woman was a SERIOUS glass collector, probably 200+ pieces of Fenton Cranberry, satin glass, Victorian stuff, it was just EVERYWHERE! Anyway, the closest thing that I can think of is Nailsea Glass? But this is cased-glass and has a ruffled edge, which I don't see on other Nailsea pieces, and the pattern is slightly different. Anyone know what this could be? 5.5" tall. Thanks for looking!

      It is truly stunning! I'm thinking Bohemian, possibly. Very unusual piece of Victorian art glass...

      Could also be English, Stevens & Williams did a fine "pull - up" pattern but have not seen it in this colourway...

      I was thinking English too, and what do you know, you were right! It is Stevens/Williams, if you google that name you will see an almost identical example on Kovels. Thanks!

      The vase is definitely English, and by Stevens & Williams. It was produced ca 1885. The decor, which is truly stunning, is called "Osiris". It is a gorgeous vase, and in a decor which only the best gaffers were capable of executing properly. Great find!!
