Applied Trailing

Glass With Applied Trails - shown below is our current range of glass vases, bowls and other decorative antique Victorian collectable glassware with applied trailing decoration.


A very popular glass making technique during the Victorian era, was clear or coloured glass with applied trailing. The trails can be in the form of simple thin lines, either vertical, horizontal, or a continuing spiral around the vessel. Sometimes the trails can start or end with a thicker, tadpole shaped lobe, or the very impressive "peacock eye's", also known as "Cairngorm". Glass with applied trailing was often method used by glass manufacturers from the Stourbridge area of England, including Stuart & Sons, Stevens & Williams, Thomas Webb and Boulton & Mills. Glass factories in America, as well as Czech/Bohemian glassworks, have also made glassware in this style.
