Antique Vaseline Pearline Glass Small Posy Vase UV Glow c 1890 Victorian 3.5 in
Antique Vaseline Pearline Glass Small Posy Vase UV Glow circa 1890 Victorian 3.5 inches High.
Here we have a very attractive small glass vase dating from the Victorian/ art nouveau period - around 1890 and made of pearline or vaseline glass in a greenish/ yellow colour that glows when under UV light.
The vase has a simple shape and is 3 1/2 inches high - perfect for a posy of short flowers. It has a faintly ribbed or wrythen shape and the semi-opaque shading features around the lower part of the vase and near the rim, giving a very pretty effect.
The base has a rough or snapped off pontil and there is quite a lot of wear - commensurate with age. It is in good condition with a small inclusion dating from manufacture and some small surface scratches around the widest section of the bowl. The vase weighs 126g unpacked.
This is a lovely piece to add to any collection of Victorian art glass or vaseline / uranium glassware.
