Antique English Northumberland Glass Vase Like Agateware England circa 1890

An antique English  Northumberland glass cornucopia vase from England circa 1890 named after the famous glass works established in  1787 in England near the town of Newcastle-upon-Tyne near the village of Lemington.  These pressed glass pieces were produced in the late 19th century using the molds more commonly associated with examples made in clear glass.  The beautiful swirls of amethyst and white were achieved by mixing the slag (leftovers from mining operations) into the clear glass.  The intense variations in color resulted by chance as opposed to a strict formula.  Be sure to look closely to see the impressed design on the mug left by the mold used to form this piece. The swirls of color are reminiscent of Agateware but different. Please use the enlarge and zoom functions offered on our website for each photograph to see the details.
