There would have been another matching piece to this mould as pictured on the left.
When the two pieces are clamped together they form the shape of the vase .
The conical shaped plunger pictured on the right would have been pressed into the mould after molten glass was added to make a vase.
On the plunger can be seen the shape that forms the curves of the wings on the rim of the vase.
The surface of this mould appears to be corroded which possibly makes it unusable.
