    Peloton glass is one of my favourite types of Victorian art glass. It's unusual, rare, & a bit mysterious. Also has texture, which is an added bonus...I love interesting textures in glass.
    This one was a fortunate find, not described as Peloton & reasonably priced. It did take a while to arrive, but that's understandable - I'm just glad it arrived at all, & that online shopping offers a virtual flea market when the real ones are closed.
    It is a diminutive piece, measuring 9.5 cm tall, 3.2 cm across the neatly cut & polished top rim, & 3.5 cm across the base, which does not have a pontil mark.
    Made from clear glass, it is relatively thick & heavy for such a small item. The applied Peloton threads are dark cobalt blue & extremely thin, like wire.
    I believe that this is an example of Harrach Peloton glass. Fourth photo shows it with two other small Peloton glass vases with the same type of expertly finished top rim & very fine threads of a single colour.

      I love peloton glass and do admire your ability to find so many beautiful examples of it. Only a teensy bit envious :)

      Peggy, thanks so much & I wish you all the Peloton glass you can find! I was so lucky with this one, it actually came from the UK & was a result of a long trawl through random glass on eBay...& I can give you the details on one that is currently listed as a buy it now...a spherical, footed rose bowl with white threads...
