Yellow splatter glass vase with gilt and enamel flowers
« on: February 05, 2010, 05:04:23 PM »
Tiny little thing, just three and a half inches high and definately showing its wear and tear in terms of the gilt. I thought it might be Victorian and English and would appreciate any more expert opinions. I tried my U.V. light on it and it glowed yellow but when I tried to photograph the colour it turned out looking pink!

They are most probably Bohemian and late 19c, early 20C. The bright yellow is the cadmium colorant.

Almost certainly never Moser and even when found with English inscriptions probably not English
