Description
A stunning 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 the Stourbridge area of England. Made in Vaseline/Uranium glass, which glows 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 4 inches tall by 2.5 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition
Excellent condition, no chips or cracks other than a couple of nicks to the thorns, shown in final picture.
