Small frilled cased vase - id please?
« on: November 13, 2006, 04:50:07 PM »
Does anyone have any idea of the maker of this little vase ?

It is apporox 4 ins 100 mm tall, frilled edge, triple cased, turquoise transparent glass to inside, white opaque middle layer, yellow transparent outer layer.  

Rough snapped pontil to base shows clear turquoise glass. There seems to be some overlap of the yellow glass to the inside of the frilled rim and a little lower just to the edge of the main opening of the vase.  

I am hoping the glassmakers here might have a better idea than I of how the layers are formed?  The above is just my guess....

Many thanks
Thank you very much!

Possibly one of the lesser known Stourbridge makers or Bohemian. Have you tried it with your UV light?

Yes, it just reflects the purple back, but does not luminesce at all.  The colour I think is simply the layers of turquoise and yellow turning lime green, rather than any uranium content.
Thank you very much!
