I've been fortunate over the last two years to find a few examples of this rare variation of Peloton glass, with brown threads. This basket is very heavy, made from two or three layers of thickly cased glass. The wide, autumnal hued Peloton threads are blended right into the white ground. The top rim is incurved in the manner of a rose bowl.
This Victorian basket measures 23 cm tall, around 12 cm across the wavy, broadly crimped top rim, & 9 cm across the base, which has a neatly polished out pontil.
Perhaps by Harrach? It's a high quality piece & rather unusual, whoever made it.
