I'm sure that some of you could appreciate how nervous I was waiting for this one to arrive safely!
The seller did a great job of packing it securely, so thankfully I can share it with you. It was found on eBay AU. I really didn't think I'd win this one, as there were several other bidders in the mix, but I hit hard right at the end & luckily I nabbed it for a reasonable sum.
This is most likely a later Victorian era piece, perhaps even crossing over into Art Nouveau.
The central vase measures around 25 cm tall, & has two hanging baskets. It is made from cased glass, light yellow (no uranium content) with a fine white spatter & crackle decor.
There is a clear applied footed base in a five pointed star shape.
Although this type of item was produced in England, I think this one might be of Bohemian origin...maybe Kralik?
