    Here is another floriform vase - this one was sold as being English - from Stourbridge.
    To me, it does have a more "Victorian" look to it than the Art Nouveau flamboyance of Kralik type floriforms.
    I must admit that it is rather different to my other floriforms, being smaller & finer in form.
    The upright, pointed petals are reminiscent of those seen on epergne trumpets.
    Made from clear yellow - green glass (which looks slightly bluish in certain lighting conditions) which contains uranium, it sits on two fine legs, with an applied, crinkly leaf (there's a bit missing off the end, but it matters little to get something so lovely).
    It measures 13.5 cm tall at the highest point, & 12.5 cm from end to end.
