Regarding this small vase, there is the possibility that the mouth was cut down by a professional glass repair specialist, and thus the flat rim that shows no traces of gold trim, except for a tiny bit on the outside edge. I mention it as a possibility because I can’t know for certain.

This is an English cased art glass vase. The maker is Thomas Webb, as you can see by the pontil. The date is circa 1890.

The vase is 4 ½” high and 3” wide.

The outer glass is a shaded pink. The inside glass is solid white. The glass has a glossy finish.

The outside is professionally hand enameled, probably by Jules Barbe or one of his artist students. There is a large detailed beetle, leaves, flowers and branches.

The gold trim around the base shows little wear.

The pontil is round, indented and polished smooth, with a bit of the white glass showing through, which is something that Webb did. There is the number 63 hand painted in gold.

There are scratches and wear to the bottom. There is estate dirt inside the vase that I did not clean.
