This old vase was called a rose bowl and the shape was common in fine Victorian homes. It is a thin, cased glass with a very soft satin finish. The exterior graduates in intensity from a rich turquoise blue along the crimped edge to a bluish white over a white interior. The bottom has a partially polished pontil mark. It is not marked but I believe it is Mt. Washington rather than Fenton.
It measures about 4 3/8” high and about 5 ¼” in diameter. It is in nice condition with no chips or cracks. The finish is rather irregular. The lower ¾ of the vase has a slightly frosted, visual appearance but the top ¼ has a shinier appearance. It is not a straight line definition between the two surfaces and the texture is smooth and silky with little distinction between the two. There are a couple of small surface flaws that can be felt more than seen. I have tried to show the undulating acid line in the photos but it is very hard to show. All things have been considered in the pricing of the bowl.
