Vasa Murina or Spangled Glass Basket
What a wonderful Victorian basket. The handle looks like bark and feels rough. The color of the interior is a soft yellow, almost the color of butter. There are flecks of gold metal in the glass. The edge of the basket is ruffled and the outer rim edge is clear glass. The outside surface of the basket is white milk glass. The pontil is unfinished. The basket is about 5" tall and measures 5 7/8" by 5". There are no chips or damage. Overall condition is great! This is called Vase Murina glass or Spangled glass. Circa 1900. There are no makers marks.
