This is a beautiful example of early Victorian Art Glass. It's a 9 1/4 tall Ruby Overlay Vase by Hodgetts, Richardson & Son in 1876. The applied amber braches, amber leaves, and moulded Opal flowers of are all in perfect condition. The pontil is ground and finely polished. Not only is this art glass rare, but this one is exquisite.Museum quality all the way. This is a beautiful piece and the photos do not do justice. Any unusual white or dark spots shown in the photos are from camera glare. This will make a great accessory to any Victorian home.
