Antique Thomas Webb Two Layer Cameo Glass Vase with Coral Branch Design (Code 9798)
An antique Thomas Webb cameo glass vase. It is a rare miniature example with a toned yellow ground and orange over white overlay. It has been cut back with a coral branch design leaving the orange as a fine outline and as some toning on the body. It dates around 1880 and these items are scarce due to the very labour intensive process required to make them, and high failure rate. Many were lost to breaking during the etching process and even making the blanks was very difficult at this time due to the different stresses between the layers of glass.
Slight wear only, a lovely example.
