This is an English art glass vase dating to the 19th century, circa 1890.
The vase is 10 ¼" high and 4 ½" wide at the belly.
The glass is a white opal over a pale ruby casing. The shape is one of a lower belly and a long slender neck. The mouth is crimped and has an amber glass edge trail. The body of the vase is decorated with a trail of amber glass with applied leaves and one flower. The leaves have some red inside the amble. The flower is clear with reddish purple and white.
Starting at the far left, there is some roughness to the touch at the tip of the leaf. On the next leaf over, the leaf that is hanging down, there is roughness to the feel on the left side of the tip and may indicate that a tiny sliver of glass broke off at one time; nothing is obvious under a magnifying glass or in a photo. On the same leaf, at the top, embedded in the glass on the underside, so visible looking down through the glass, there may be a fracture of the glass; the glass is smooth to the touch and it is probably just part of the glass making process. On the last leaf, the one to the far right, there is roughness to the feel on the left side of the tip. All of the leaves have roughness on the left side of the tip. On the interior, there are a few spots where the white glass shows through the pink glass and there is at least one tiny air bubble.
The pontil is round, slightly indented, and polished smooth.
