Vauxhall Glass

Through the eighteenth century and on into the middle of the nineteenth, Vauxhall glass was a popular gem substitute. Intense hues of highly reflective purple, orange, red, green and blue were set into butterfly, snowflake and flower motifs on necklacesbraceletsearringsbrooches and hair combs. Made in the Vauxhall Glassworks in London, this jewelry was probably sold as souvenirs in the Vauxhall Gardens.
