This is an English cased art glass vase. The maker is Thomas Webb. The date is circa 1895.
The vase is 7” high and 4” wide.
The interior glass is white, or a bluish gray white. The outer glass shades from pink at the bottom to a bluish white at the top, similar to peachblow.
The rim is pulled down in four places and the mouth edge is irregular, with four holes in the upper neck.
The outside is decorated with gold coralene beading in the form of coral branches, a decorating method used during this time period. There is also coralene on the pulled down tabs.
The gold trim on the mouth edge is mostly worn away. The coralene beading shows wear in places, with some beading missing due to age, perhaps 10 to 20% of the coralene is gone.
The pontil is round, indented and polished. Some of the interior white glass shows through on the pontil, which glass experts know is a trademark of Thomas Webb.
There are no chips, nicks or cracks.
