My favourite local op shop reopened today, & I made sure to pay a visit. I hadn't been there for months so I was just thrilled to go there at last...not even expecting to make any finds, the mere fact it was open was good enough.
I was rewarded with this pretty Victorian spatter glass vase in perfect condition for just $4. What a happy little camper I was to find it!
It measures around 16.5 cm tall, 3.3 cm across the cut & polished top rim, & 6 cm across the base, which does not have a pontil mark.
The vase is made from three layers of cased glass - clear over a pastel spatter in pink & beige, with an opaque white interior.
It has two applied handles in clear glass, which have an organic, leaf - like form.
I believe that this could be an example of a "decoupage spatter" decor by Welz. The pale, translucent spatter overlaps in places, creating subtle tonal variations throughout the decor.
