Bristol glass is a mold-blown, semi-opaque glass manufactured throughout Europe and exported to our shores during the Victorian era. It is usually pink, blue, white, beige or clams-broth in either a glossy or acid-finish and decorated with various motifs popular during the period of 1880-1915.

This beautiful, gracefully contoured vase has a beige acid-finish matt finish. It is exquisitely decorated with a combination of transfer and hand painting. The central transfer theme is a young lad floating in the air reaching for an elusive butterfly just beyond his grasp. Surrounded by hand painted, lavender, Queen Anne's Lace with gold stems and foliage. The vase is also adorned with rich brown bands and top rim. The vase measures 9 3/4" in height, 3 1/4" across the base, 3 1/2" across the widest portion and 1 7/8" across the top opening. Maker is unknown, probably English origin, marked "21" on the base. There are no cracks, chips, repairs or enamel wear; near mint.
