Stunning Ruby Glass Encased Vase
« on: August 07, 2012, 06:14:00 PM »
Acquired this recently from my local auction and surprisingly I thought I would have to pay through the nose with all the dealers there but didn't!   Can't decide whether it's Victorian or Art Nouveau and haven't the foggiest as to where to start trying to ID it.  It stands 11" and the casing is silver plated.  Anyone please??
