Satin glass derives its name from the items' velvety finish achieved through the application of an acid bath. This procedure has been used by many companies since the late 1800's, both here and abroad, on many types of colored and art glass items. This lovely piece of Victorian art glass, circa 1880 - 1900, is a medium blue shading to a very light blue near the base; the interior is white. It is decorated on both sides with yellow enamel scrolls, delicate pink/white flowers and tiny dark leaves. It stands 3 1/4" high and 3 3/4" across. Hand-blown with a nice pontil. There are no cracks, chips, nicks, repairs or scratches on this piece.
