Here's a beautiful SIGNED Thomas Webb & Sons Queens Burmese Vase. Wonderful Burmese coloring, featuring a disc foot with an intricately crimped rim like only Webb could do! On the base it's signed "THOS WEBB & SONS - QUEENS BURMESEWARE PATENTED - RD 80167", see photos for a close-up of the signature. RD#80167 was patented September 5 1887, for the petal crimp rim.

Burmese glass was invented and then patented in 1885 by F. Shirley one of the driving forces behind the Mt. Washington glass company. The story goes that Queen Victoria was presented with a tea set from the Mt. Washington Company, absolutely loved it and said the glass reminded her of a Burmese sunset. She was so thrilled with the glass that in 1886 the Webb company of England acquired the license to produce the glass and named it Queens Burmese Ware with her Majesty's permission.

You can view more Webb Burmese glass in the book "British Glass 1800-1914" by Charles R. Hajdamach.

Excellent condition with no chips, cracks or other issues. C. 1887.
