Enamelled Glass


This section focuses on hand painted enamelled glass from the Victorian era. This style of glass consists of blown glass vases and urns which are often decorated with floral scenes or other scenes of nature. They come in various opaque colours including green, blue, pink and brown. Sometimes uranium oxide is used to produce a green colour, which results in the glass glowing bright green under ultraviolet (UV) light. Most enamelled Victorian glass such as the examples shown below were probably made in Bohemia, by various manufacturers which include Harrach and Moser, and likely many others. Similar glassware is also thought to have been made in Belgium.
