Description

A wonderful 1890's Victorian Stourbridge glass vase. Made in pink + creamy yellow Burmese glass, with hand painted berries and leaves pattern, by the British firm Thomas Webb & Sons. Marked to base "Thos Webb & Sons, Queen's Burmese Ware, Patented, Rd 80167". The design number 80167 was registered by Thomas Webb & Sons on 5th September 1887. The same pattern is shown in the Thomas Webb section of the book Mt Washington Art Glass plus Webb Burmese, pages 60-61. Small amounts of Uranium in the glass cause it to glow bright green in UV light.

Please note:  Although this vase is obviously too small to hold a bunch of flowers, it is still classed as a vase.  Small vases like this were often used to hold flowerheads, or miniature "sweetpea" flowers, or simply used as decorative ornaments.

Size

Measures approx 2.5 inches tall by 3.25 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

Excellent condition, no chips or cracks, just some minor wear to the painted decoration, see pictures.
