 Sold / Reference 


A stunning large Victorian 1890's British glass "thorn" vase. Consists of a tubular opalescent yellow green glass flower holder with rustic stylised tree root "feet", and pulled out thorns. A similar vase is shown in the book Victorian Decorative Glass by Mervyn Gulliver, page 98. Most likely made by John Walsh Walsh from Birmingham, England. Made in vaseline/uranium glass, which glows bright green in UV light.


Measures approx 10.25 inches tall by 3.5 inches in diameter at widest point.


As usual with these pieces, there are some nibbles to the feet and thorns, all shown in final pictures. These do not affect how the vase stands.
