Large vase or garniture.

I've tried a UV light and it's not uranium.
I've looked at vaseline glass but can't find any translucent examples.
What type of glass is it please?

I assume it's Victorian or Victorian style reproduction.
Smooth pontil and as such just rings flowing outwards.

1.5 kg
32 cm tall x 13.5 cm base diameter.

If it doesn't glow under UV it will be Opaline glass. Might help.
Probably late 19thC

Thanks so much. Having now searched the term I didn't realise opaline was a type rather than just being descriptive as opalescent. It's not a glass term I'm used to using and now seems obvious, so thanks for increasing my knowledge.

That's not correct. Uranium glass (often called vaseline glass) glows under UV, and also to a lesser extent glass containing manganese. Opalescent glass changes in daylight conditions depending on how the light hits it, like an opal.
This piece is late 19th or early 20th century. Could be Bohemian, or by one of the British factories such as John Walsh Walsh or even Whitefriars.
