Pair of English Victorian Satin Glass Wild Rose Vases. Circa 1880's by Thomas Webb

These are a lovely pair of Victorian glass vases by Thomas Webb & Sons, England. Circa 1880's

Similar vases of this colour & period were produced by The New England Glass Company, USA and are named 'Wild Rose'

These English examples however are made differently and uses two layers of glass. The innermost layer being white.

Glassware of this type is also known as 'Heat Sensitive Glass.' Other coloured examples are the likes of 'Peach Blow' and 'Amberina' etc. This particular pair of vases have a wonderful satin-matt finish and are exceptionally tactile, and their top frills never fail to delight.

The rich ruby coloured glass, shades into a pinky-white. It was achieved by flashing & quickly rotating the glass, to its lower parts. The colouring agents used reacted to this sudden heat where applied. Upon cooling, the glass then shaded to capture its remarkable graduation of colour. The resulting effect is gorgeous.

These beautiful examples are completely free of damage. There are no nasty chips, cracks or flea-bites and so both are in pristine condition... Not bad, for a pair of glass vases which are over 100 years old!

They are a truly fine pair of their type for your collection.

Both pontil marks remain un-ground.
