Description

A wonderful Victorian vase or raised bowl in purple & white marbled Malachite glass, also known as Slag glass, with nautilus shell design. Manufacturer unknown, no makers marks. A similar design, but with the base also in the style of a shell, is shown in the book "The Identification of English Pressed Glass" by Jenny Thompson, page 67, where the maker is given as W. H. Heppel & Co. It could be that they also made this design, or maybe another maker from the same era made one similar.

Condition
