Something fancy for all the fanciful folks out there in CW land...a fantastical Victorian ruby glass vase with two hanging baskets.
These items are very rare, & so when I spotted this one at the monthly antiques fair a few weeks ago, I jumped at the opportunity.
Made from ruby glass, it has clear applied handles, as well as an applied daisy head pattern rigaree with downward facing "leaves" encircling the top rim, & a half - daisy head footed base. The vase measures around 24 cm tall.
The two hanging baskets are made from ruby glass with clear applied handles & daisy head rigarees.
What I particularly love about this piece is that it looks almost alive, like some kind of curiously anthropomorphic plant/animal hybrid...
Possibly of English origin.
