This is a beautiful little English art glass vase, dating to the 19th century, circa 1885.

The vase is 4 5/8" high, 3 ¼" wide at the belly and 7/8" wide at the mouth. For the little vases, one has to consider if it was originally a perfume or cologne bottle and it now has a missing stopper; however the mouth size at 7/8" is too wide for stopper, the proportions would be all wrong, so I believe this is just another small vase.

The shape is a round lower belly with a long stick neck.

The interior glass is white opaline covered with yellow glass. A colorful song bird is enameled on the front of the vase, holding something in its beak. There are blue and orange flowers, and blue, brown, red and green leaves. The enameled hand painting has gold highlights.

There was gold trim around the mouth and bottom edge and most of it is worn away. There is an air bubble or crease in the glass, located below the leaves on the right front, and I point to it in one photo with a red arrow. The pontil is small, round, slightly indented and polished smooth. Some white opaline shows through on the bottom, usually a process due to Webb when done intentionally, and to the ignorant might look like cracks in the glass, but it isn't, just how the glass was made.

There is some estate residue inside the vase on the bottom.

I have more English glass, yellow glass, enameled glass, cased glass and glass with birds in my shop, just do a search on any of the above search terms. Or click on Glass on the left of the screen to view all of my glass for sale.
