This is a late 19th century English art glass rose bowl, circa 1895. The maker is Thomas Webb, a glass maker from the Stourbridge area, as identified by the pontil.
The bowl is 4 ½" high and 6" wide.
The color of the glass is unusual. It is almost brown, but with amber or gold added. In some light, the bowl looks almost orange.
There are three applied stub feet made of clear glass with a rustic pattern.
The rim is crimped inwards six times.
The top design is machine threaded. Below the threading, circling the bowl, are engraved designs of a bird perched on a leafy branch. It is a repeating pattern, so there are three birds.
There is a raspberry prunt in clear glass applied to a circular base in clear glass on the underside of the bowl, one of Webb's trademark pontils. The prunt identifies the maker and the date range.
There are no chips, cracks or nicks. There are some spots of dark discoloration in the glass. There are a few tiny air bubbles.
