This is an English art glass vase. The date is the last part of the 19th century, circa 1890.
The vase is 6” high and about 2 ¼” at the bottom.
The shape is geometric, with four angled sides. The vase is wider at the bottom and the angled sides narrow into a long circular neck.
The inside glass is white, and the outside glass is blue. The glass has a satin finish.
The front of the glass is hand enameled with a daisy flower and leaves. The colors used are white, brown, orange, gray and green, with gold enamel. There is wear to the enameling due to age and wear.
The bottom lower corner has an air bubble, which you can see in the photos.
The rim is polished flat and trimmed with gold. There is wear to the gold. The inside rim is slightly beveled. I do not think there was ever a stopper in the top, but one always has to consider it to be a possibility for the old glass with the narrow necks and small mouths. I don’t see any abrasions on the inside that is typically of having a stopper inside the mouth.
The pontil is large, round, slightly concave and polished smooth. The remainder of the bottom is polished flat. With careful scrutiny, there may be a layer of clear glass over the blue glass, and it is visible on the bottom. The pontil has the following hand enameled on it, “13.”, followed by “B/566.”.
The underside shows wear and scratches due to age.
