Free Blown Glass Show Vase with Unusual Shape with Hollow Stem & Hollow Footed Base ! Sorry, the Flower Vase stands straight, but the cushion I took the pictures on wasn't level. There is slight water staining inside the bottom hollow foot.
Clear Blown glass with a Hollow Stem & Hollow Footed base. The high quality workmanship,with thin glass, the flared out top and lower part of the Vase having expanded ribs suggests to me that it is "English Bristol Glass" production. You can find Similar Forms and bases, but usually done in a White Glass finished with hand painted enamel decorations, instead of this Clear Glass example.
Medium size is 8 3/4 inches to top of stopper, and base is 3 1/4 inches in diameter.
Normal Pushed in Iron Pontil mark underneath.
Glass condition is undamaged.
Weighs 9.9 ounces alone.
Glass glows Green under black light test. Usually Accepted Benchmark for Pre-World War 1 Production.
Guaranteed Antique originals Glow Green Under Black Light Test ! (Glass which glows green under black light proves most production to be earlier than 1918 and is usually accepted as the cutoff point for use of manganese in glass production which was used as a Lead substitute)
