A recent arrival, this interesting Victorian glass vase is made from a single layer of opaque white glass that contains uranium & glows green under UV light.
It measures 14 cm tall, 6 x 7 cm across the crimped, pinched up top rim, & 5 cm across the base, which has a neatly polished out pontil mark.
The vase has an applied crest in pink, applied leaves & a spray of what looks like wheat or another grain in clear glass, & a silky smooth satin finish.
I have many items in UV reactive white glass with applied decoration, this one is the first with a satin finish.
Perhaps Bohemian origin.
