This is an English art glass vase with two layers of glass, a pink interior and a white exterior. The date is the late 19th century, circa 1890.
The vase is 12 ½" high and about 5" wide through the body.
The mouth is crimped and the edge is finished with a clear amber glass trail. There is a round foot. The pontil is round, indented and rough, with the number 2 hand enameled in black over the pontil.
The front of the vase has a hand enameled or hand painted small bird in flight. The top of the vase has a rose vine trailing a large yellow rose. Up one side are grassy stems with small pink and white flowers. The bottom shows two small trees in a lavender-gray, with some small white, blue and yellow blossoms to the side.
The inside bottom of the vase has some estate residue that I was unable to clean adequately. The interior also has a few round spots of white that show through the pink.
There are no chips, nicks or cracks.
