Late 19th Century Art Glass Vase by Thomas Webb
This form of glass vase was created from Webb's experimentation with recreating ancient irridescent Greco/Roman style glass, that changed colour as light struck and passed through it.
The base colour is a deep green, with applied globules of molten glass that formed what became know as the 'brain pattern'.
The iridescent blues, purples and green colours were created by a complex chemical formulation.
