|An excellent example of English Cameo Glass from the Gem Cameo Series by Thomas Webb & Sons. This vase is intricately carved with a finely detailed design depicting a pattern of flowing vines and flowers in White on a Black background. The background is actually a very deep brownish Red when strongly backlit. Surrounding the top rim and base is a detailed border in an Oriental Motif. Additionally, the neck is encircled by a superb carving in a stylized flame decor. Overall, this vase bears all the hallmarks of being a top quality hand carved cameo glass item from the Gem Cameo series by Webb. It measures 5 1/2" High by 3 1/2" in Diameter with an opening of 1 7/8" and a base of 1 3/8". Excellent Condition. Unsigned. A vase with a color similar to the backlit color of this vase may be seen on page 148 of English Cameo Glass by Grover. Other pieces very similar in design and decor to this vase may be referenced in this valuable resource.|
