I just put this on here for fun really. I'm supposed to be doing other boring things
I'm not too bothered who made it but thoughts would be nice
I'm very fond of these vases and this type of cased old glass - they are all different, all have white interiors, but are top quality and quite heavy for size. As an example the red Carnelian vase weighs about 1lb or just under 1/2kg, compared to the opaque 'Bohemian' vases enamelled with flowers, often sold as 'Bristol enamelled vase', of the same size that weighs just 200grms.
This yellow ball vase is mould blown I thought from the top, with an impeccably neat base (matt ring of wear around the outer edge) but has a firepolished rim. Perhaps it was freeblown? The white interior is thick and is uranium glass. The rim measures 3.5-4mm The gilding is sadly worn to a shadow as it would have looked stupendous when it was new.
It's a large piece at 5 3/4" tall (14.5cm) by 6 1/4 diameter (16cm ).
The yellow is a true perfect yellow, not caramel or amberish
