Satin glass derives its name from the item's velvety matt finish which is achieved through the application of an acid bath. The pieces can be either cased glass, two layers, or one homogeneous mix of one layer.

This gorgeous pair of Victorian satin glass ewers, circa 1890, was created by one of the major glass houses of the day. The body consists of two layers, a soft white interior and pale lime green exterior decorated with hand painted daisies and leafage in a pastel yellow enamel. The gently twisted applied handle and ruffled edge on the tri-fold top is frosted clear glass, very similar to camphor glass.

The ewers measure 9 3/4" in height, 4 1/2" from spout to handle and 4" across the widest portion of the body. Both have rough, unpolished pontils. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; one has a dark spot on the top which happened during the making (see photo). Great matched pair.
