I don't see this type of glass very often, so when I spotted this vase on eBay AU last week, I jumped. It is a really nice piece of Victorian uranium glass with a heat reactive opalescent floral pattern.
The vase is made from pale yellow - green glass which has a super glow under UV light. It measures around 10.5 cm tall, 8.5 cm across the wavy, loosely crimped top rim, & 5.5 cm across the base, which has a rough, snapped pontil mark.
The floral design is reminiscent of daffodils, so these miniature daffodils were the ideal accompaniment.
Numerous manufacturers produced this type of glass in England, Europe, & the USA, so at this point I'm keeping an open mind.
