English Victorian Blue Opalescent Glass Vase by Burtles,Tate & Co. circa pre 1888


This magnificent vase has the hallmarks of being produced by Burtles,Tate & Co.,Manchester,England. Circa pre-1888

Its colour was a patented unique feature of this glass type. The colour, blue opalescent is rarely found in other regions of English Victorian era glass and it is scarce, desirable & rare. Of all Opal glass colour-types,this was the most difficult and the most challenging of colours to produce.

The top formation is also a feature of the above glass works. With the back facing upwards so as to allow for a narrow shelf display and with rest of the frill facing down.

It is also tall in height at 11 inches and its foot has been spun large to give the vase stability. Perhaps as to why this vase is completely free of any damage. Water staining however,is evident as is shown.

It's a super-fine piece of glass at over 100 years old and the word 'Phenomenal' is almost an understatement, and of course this vase is totally unique and without any known parallel or an equivalent.

This is a fabulous historical piece for your collection, which can never fail to please and more than just an item of unquestionable beauty, it is also undeniably a very worthy investment piece...

Un-ground pontil to foot centre.
