This is a beautifull example of early Victorian Art Glass. The pictures do not do justice to this piece. The colors are a vibrant mix and different shades of Ruby, Pink, and Crystal, applied over White Opal Glass lined with Ruby or Cranberry. This 10 1/2 tall vase has beautiful and stylish Acorn Leaves and Acorns and a side handle applied to the surface.
Applied crystal feet at the bottom and crystal edge to the flared and ruffled top. The pontil is ground and polished. Whether by Thomas Webb and Sons, Stevens and Williams, or Boulton & Mills, it's a quality piece of antique art glass, ca. One foot has a very tiny rough spot on the very edge and is not noticeable.
Other than that, the vase is perfect with no chips or cracks or hairlines and no mineral deposit or stains inside. It is a little dusty inside on the bottom and will easily rinse out with water. What a pretty piece this is. Any unusual white or dark spots shown in the photos are from camera glare. This will make a great accessory to any Victorian home.
