A most unusual but stunningly beautiful piece this large old ENGLISH glass vase has been hand painted FROM THE INSIDE with a cluster of beautiful roses....see the pictures showing these from the inside. The vase is large being over 12 inches tall and about the same measurement at the widest point. It has a special alloy inner that sits on the rim to take the flowers and water so as not to damage the interior hand painted flowers. In simply beautiful near Mint condition we believe this piece dates to around 1860 give or take 10 years either side. This fabulous item has been with the same family for what must be around 150 years plus.....it came from the Grandmother of the lady we sourced it from, and she was born in the early 1930's.
