This is a unique English art glass footed rose bowl. The maker is Thomas Webb, with the Webb applied glass berry prunt on the pontil. The date is circa 1895.
I’ve seen a lot of art glass, but this one is new to me. And gosh but it is lovely.
The interior glass is cranberry or pale ruby. The outer layer appears to be pale amber. Between the two layers of glass is silver mica. The thing is, from the inside, through the cranberry, the mica looks pink. From the outside, through the amber, the mica looks like gold. It is terrific to look at this glass.
Not only that, the entire outside of the vase is machine threaded.
The rim is rounded and with a 3-way crimp.
There are three clear glass rustic feet that are applied.
There is the applied raspberry or berry clear glass prunt over the pontil that I already mentioned, and which is what Webb did on their high-end glass.
If you like Webb, be sure to look in my shop at other unusual Webb I have listed. I even have another footed rose bowl, but a totally different kind of rose bowl than this one.
There are no chips, nicks, or cracks. There is one tiny break in the machine threading on one side that can be felt with the fingertips, but doesn’t show in a photo and is difficult to spot visually.
This is a very high quality piece of glass.
