Offered is this very rare 'Diamond glass' (produced by blowing compressed air), English glass vase, made around 1850, most likely by Ricardson and may have been designed by Thomas Webb (when he was still at Richardson). The vase is 9 inches (23 cm) tall. Overall, the blown (has pontil), cased-glass vase is in good condition (as are typical of these vases with glass applications, there is a small flake on the applied flower and a short discontinuation on the applied limb - see pictures). Unsigned, but attributed to Richardson (please refer to page 96 of Charles Hajdamach's book, 'British Glass' for a page from Richardson's 1851 catalog showing their 'Diamond glass' - shown in last two pictures here for your convenience).
