I had an enjoyable excursion the other day, browsing around some local shops with a friend. I'd seen this small vase before, & decided that it was time to add it to my collection. Pink & green is a favourite colour scheme of mine, & one quite often seen in Victorian art glass. It is so evocative of Spring, which is definitely on the way here.
This small vase packs plenty of visual punch despite it measuring only 12.2 cm tall, 3.5 cm across the top rim, & 4.7 cm across the base, which does not have a pontil mark.
The vase is made from three layers of cased glass - clear over bright pink & green aventurine spatter, with a white interior.
The pink areas on the base are particularly bright - almost neon pink.
I have not encountered this exact shape before in this type of spatter glass, it seems distinctive & should provide a clue in identifying it eventually.
