Neat, small snapped off pontil mark, four way crimped rim but three applied rustic feet. Rim is firepolished and was gilded

Gilding very worn although not as brown in real life as it appears in the photos.

Decoration has remains of gilded 'stems' directly gilded onto vase trailing down from the rim, not the same as the raised outline as the butterfly and leaves are.

I thought it might be Harrach, they were fond of their three footed pieces and rustic feet and trailed decoration from the rim downwards.

Have not managed to find anything at all with yellow shaded to clear though, in any books, English or Bohemian.  The yellow is very bright.

The acid wash over the crackle has left it with a lovely textured type surface rather than being completely smooth if you see what I mean.

Cabinet size measuring 3 3/4"high by 2 1/4" diameter widest.

Is it Bohemian?  or any chance of it being English?   
Thanks for looking :)

no me neither :)

I've found some with rustic stub feet in Gulliver's however not satin finish and none that are id'd.
I've found one on this link with a shaded pink to cream and a similar shape body with satin glass finish handles and feet -  id'd as Stevens and Williams apparently (last one on the link if you scroll down).

And I've found a yellow to white shaded coralene vase here which I think might be Harrach maybe?

but all they really tell me is that it's probably dated c.1890/1895 I think  :-\

these two are both  apparently marked Webb with the acid mark
shaded yellow to pale yellow - nothing like mine in design though but both look to be satin glass

If there is yellow under the gilding I would go for Bohemian; if it is something darker I would go for English

thanks :) mmm,  it's not yellow as in the yellow I recall seeing under Bohemian gilding, but it is beige/dirty straw, not dark.

 The only thing that's making me query English possibly, is I don't recall seeing this yellow on any Bohemian pieces, but have found a few Webb (apparently marked) pieces that have this bright yellow to pale or white.  And Webb did use satin finish on their feet.  And there is a possibility of S&W using rustic feet.  So they possibly are not a Bohemian only preserve.

I'm still inclined to Bohemian though but will keep searching :)
