    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...

      Wonderful find.....some features point in one direction and others disagree!!! But I too would have bought it happily.

      Many thanks, sklo42, yes, I thought this one might open a can of worms...for some reason I seem to be drawn such pieces! :-)
      Hope you can find yourself some brown Peloton too, it's something special for sure...

      Your pictures of this beautiful rose bowl are so gorgeous! And, help me - cut roses at about 7" to stand and fan out with each other? Would look so beautiful with flowers on any table.

      Thanks so much, valentino97!
      I'm actually not 100% sure of what the specifics were for arranging roses in rose bowls...this is a big one, so would definitely work well with a tightly packed, short bouquet. But some of them are extremely tiny & you would be lucky to fit one small bloom in them!

      I am of the opinion that this is quite possibly Welz production. It has several attributes which point that direction. The "Snowflake" crimped rim is certainly one of the strongest indicators. I saw my first one of these about 3 years ago. I have also seen a small side by side "double vase" which leans towards Welz production and also found in this same decor. These 2 examples are the only 2 I can recall seeing in this exact Peloton decor.
