Made the 2 hour trek down for the first monthly antiques fair of the year, & picked up this nice little Victorian vase for a bargain price.
It is made from a single layer of transparent salmon pink glass, with a swirling ribbed pattern. The vase has a squat, bulbous form with pushed - in sides, & the applied green crested & crimped rim has also been pinched in the centre. Small, but busy all over with a variety of textures.
It measures around 12 cm tall, 9 cm across the widest point of the top rim, & 5 cm across the base, which has a rough, snapped pontil mark.
I think it may be of Bohemian origin. I have a couple of other small vases with similarities in their design which could potentially be by the same maker.
