White vase with multi-layered decoration
« on: August 13, 2010, 03:22:54 PM »
I bought this vase for its unusual use of multi-layed glass.  As you can see white/red/light green/dark green/yellow/red/white layers on that scallop on the left hand top edge.  It intrigued me that the colour layers were not used in a more conventional "cameo" fashion.

The base show it has been repaired at some stage but it also shows a faint 41 which was typical of Edwardian or earlier marking - rather than a more recent manufacture.  It is c. 25 cms tall.

I don't know where to even start looking - any help much appreciated.
