A beautiful example of vaseline glass from the old Stourbridge firm of Richardson's. The tulip shape vase has a finely ruffled rim and is decorated with stylised art nouveau daisies moulded in low relief. A lovely depth of opalescence and in excellent condition - no chips, cracks or repairs. Rare to find, especially in such good order. Height 20cm (7.9in)
The design is illustrated in The Standard Encyclopedia of Opalescent Glass by Mike Carwile page 109 and attributed to either Richardson's or John Walsh Walsh (naming the pattern 'Petals with cupped pearl'), though the late Cyril Manley has documented the moulds for this pattern as belonging to Richardson's.
