This Victorian spatter glass vase is a new arrival from eBay AU.
It is made from two layers of cased glass - clear over a spatter of white, blue, & deep "oxblood" red, & it measures 19.5 cm tall, 12 cm across the four sided, finely crimped top rim, & 8 cm across the base.
This is an interestingly shaped vase, with it's integrally moulded '"snake", which I have not encountered in Australia before. In books, I'd seen a vase like this made by Fenton - they called it a "wheat vase", & it was apparently based on a Victorian design. I think this one is one of the originals, rather than 1960s Fenton. Possibly by Legras?
