    Sometimes I like collecting glass in themes. These items were made by Stevens & Williams from about 1890. They have been purchased on-line from both England and America. They are made by marvering yellow [citrine], ruby and white canes into the clear glass body. Most are rose bowls and there is a small jug. The smallest bowl is particularly attractive, when held up to the light. You have to be lucky to find a good example of this glass. Only the jug and the smallest bowl have a polished pontil, while the others are snapped. The black residue [scale] from the punty iron is still there - some say a sure sign of age. The familiar S & W box pleat top can be seen on one of the vases and the bowl. The largest rose bowl is 9 cms high and 10 cms wide.

      Thanks, again Newfld for the positive comment. I keep these pieces close together in a cabinet. I usually find one every couple of years and if I do see an example, I bid to win! They ooze Victoriana with their ruffles and pleats and striking multi-colored swirls. Are they trying to hypnotize me? I think they are!

      Love the difference ways the tops are ruffled!
      Absolutely lovely pieces, here’s hoping you find more!

      Ms.CrystalShip, Thanks for your interest in the collection. Who doesn't like ruffles when it comes to old glass? It sure does define the period when these items were made. The only problem is that they are so fine and delicate that you have to examine each thoroughly to see that there is no damage - and some of them have extremely tight ruffles so it makes the job of checking difficult.
