Tornado Variant, Thomas Webb and Sons

Tornado Variant vases are actually art glass (pedestaled, blown with applied tornadoes/peacock tails) made in early 1900 by Thomas Webb & Sons). They are assumed to be the precursor to the Northwood pattern (sold starting in 1911).
The pattern consists of 3 repeating ‘tornadoes' ending at a ring that is above the pedestal base. On many of the vases the applied tornadoes are vaseline and will glow with a black light. The top treatment is pinched and tri-cornered and the base will have a polished pontil.

There are 3 sizes (5″, 6″ & 7″).
