The Arts and Crafts movement came about as a reaction to industrialization and mass production. The designers were also against the extravagant, and over-decorated Victorian taste. They wanted to focus on good simple designs. Also, a return to hand crafted work of the highest standard was desired but to be done with basic and inexpensive materials. This movement began in the middle of the 19th century, and continued into the beginning of the twentieth century.

A charming and diminutive Antique Arts & Crafts English Glass Vase having a ruffled edge. Decorated with straight green lines which end in flowing curves at the base of the ruffled edge, this is a particularly pretty design. The color green is quite vibrant and is also used horizontally at the ruffled edge. The detail work on this piece is exceptional.

Even though the Arts and Crafts movement failed to change society in the way which the designers intended it to do, it did have major results on future trends. The designs in these trends helped being about the Art Nouveau period. The beautiful designs of this vase are as popular today as they were in the Arts and Crafts period. This is a wonderful example of an Antique Arts & Crafts English Glass Vase.
