Vase

A glass vase with frills decorating the rim and the body of the piece.

Amber glass, probably made by Stevens and Williams, Brierly Hill, Stourbridge, West Midlands, about 1880-85

Coloured glass like this example was very popular during the 1880s, especially with applied naturalistic decoration in the form of leaves and flowers. The amber colour of this piece was probably achieved by adding the metals iron and antimony to the mixture during production.

Given by Mrs A M Bollens, 1954
