For sale is a lovely piece of Art Glassmade by The Stevens and Williams Glass Company of Stourbridge, West Midlands England. It is also possible that this was made by Thomas Webb. The Item is a Sherbet Bowl and it is done in the ever popular Vaseline Opalescent Glass. The Bowl stands 2 3/8" tall and is approximately 5 3/4" in diameter.
The Bowl displays a beautiful highly irregular heavily ruffled outer Border. The Opalescence surrounds the entire outer edge. This opalescence sits just below the outer edge and is approximately 1 1 /4" thick. The Base Glass is a Yellow Green when it is held to the light. The Glass has a very Vaseline textured feel to it when handled.
The Bowl is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. The Bowl is unsigned but it does display a counter sunk polished Pontil. This is the sign of a quality piece of Art Glass. Vaseline Glass is highly collected today as it was extremely popular during the Victorian Era. I would say that this wonderful piece of Vaseline Glass was made circa 1880-1895.
