Stevens and Williams? yellow opaline Stourbridge glass vase?
« on: February 12, 2014, 07:48:57 PM »
I think this is Victorian, it looks like a yellow sea urchin with the lines within the glass, lots of wear to the base and a polished pontil, i think it might be a piece of Stourbridge glass as i have found 3 similar pieces where i live, one blue and one opaline all different shapes and sizes, although i have been blown away recently with the age wear base thing in my last two posts, the vase has a lot of staining to the inner bowl and it's 3 1/4 inches in height and 4 inches in width.

Not uranium, even though it looks like it.
