    There are times in one's life as a collector when you know you've reached a new level.
    For me, as an admirer of Victorian art glass in all its diversity, to acquire a piece of cameo glass has long been a goal.
    When the opportunity arose to make that acquisition (for a pleasingly reasonable price, & from a dealer I've bought from for almost 25 years) I seized it with great enthusiasm.
    So here it is, a small vase by Thomas Webb & Sons.
    Made from pale yellow glass that contains uranium & glows under UV light, it features cameo decoration of flowers (perennial phlox, I think), two butterflies, & grasses.
    The vase measures around 10.5 cm tall, 5 cm across the top rim, & 4.5 cm across the base.

      Beautiful, IronLace, and the simplicity of it being only two colours gives it great style and panache.
