This Victorian art glass dish is made from a two layers glass - clear shading to an intense pink at the top rim, with a subtle milky opalescence underneath. Faint opalescent stripes rise up from the base, which has a neatly polished out pontil mark. The dish is encircled with a pale yellow (not UV reactive) crimped rigaree band.
It measures 6.5 cm tall, 12.8 cm wide across the top rim, & 6 cm across the base.
Probably would have once sat in a silver plate holder.
As English as a good cup of tea, I believe!
