Hi all.  Hope someone can help.  I picked this small dish up at one of local auctions.  It was described as a Victorian white glass dish with a blue ruffled rim with an applied clear glass foot rim.  It is blown glass with a ground out pontil (not polished),and todate I've had no success in either validating it's age (Victorian) or found any clues as to where it's from.  Can anyone help?  It measures 8 cm tall x 12 cm in length x 9 cm wide and weighs just over 230 gms.  Any help would be much appreciated.

I am no expert but to just give an opinion as i see it.
I would think English made although the blue is not a common color used to trail the rim clear more common etc Date wise i would guess around 1880 that sort of date purely decorative mantel piece or  dressing table item.
Quite an out of vogue item in current climate with the boom in everything mid-century..
Although the uranium coloring adds credence to its popularity
 :)
Nice item and quite rare to find un-chipped piece similar to it.

Almost certainly Bohemian. Blue and amber are both common rim trail colours and for other trim. I have never seen clear except on Fenton glass. Date is about right though but could even be early 2oth C
