Burtles Tate & Co Pressed Opalescent Glass Small Swan Posy Salt Antique 1885

A pressed glass swan, a small size posy vase, possibly salt, was produced around 1885 by a renowned maker; Burtles Tate and Company of Manchester. This very collectable item of British Victorian era has the registered number 20086 in relief on the base. 

Burtles Tate and Company registered this design in 1885 and the colour of the glass was marketed as Topaz Opalescence. it is similar to pearline glass with a beautiful milky-blue opalescence.  Burtles Tate & Co was founded in 1858 in Manchester with a registered address of Poland Street Glass Works, Oldham Road, Manchester.  They operated until Butterworth Brothers of Manchester bought them out in 1924.

The swan is 3 1/8th inches high and 4 inches long. It weighs 172g and is in very good condition. A similar swan is in the Victoria and Albert Museum (CIRC.315-1967 ) and this is a design classic - a great example of Victorian pressed glass or art glass.
