I have seen this large Victorian rose bowl online for many years. Recently it showed up on eBay, & luckily I was the only bidder.
This is the fourth example of this unusual type of brown Peloton glass that I have acquired over the last two years, & I'm thrilled to have it in my collection.
It is a substantial size for a rose bowl, measuring around 15 cm tall, 14 cm across the fancy, "snowflake" top rim, & 11.5 cm across the base, which has a neatly polished out pontil mark.
The vase is made from three layers of cased glass - clear over brown Peloton threads, with a white interior. It sits on three, clear applied rustic feet. Feet are similar to the applied feet on a large yellow frit vase I posted a couple of years back.
A very fine quality & heavy piece. I am not even going to speculate on a possible maker, suffice to say that I believe it to be of Bohemian origin.
I'm sure that it will become an interesting source of conjecture, with regard to this rare type of Victorian art glass...
