pink swirl with deeply impressed mark - any ideas?
« on: April 28, 2007, 04:15:22 PM »
This is a lovely weight, a rather chalky swirl like a coiled snake, with a deeply impressed mark - I have filled it with talcum powder as it didn't show well in the original photo.

Does anyone recognise this mark?

It came with another that is etched Trout Studio, that I think is USA - does anyone have any info on them?  I found a mention on a gallery site, but nothing more.

Thanks Della! 

Funny thing search engines, you can put something in one day and get one thing, then someone else puts much the same thing and gets something different!

IMO Christine's weight looks a bit like a Mdina or Mtarfa ???

Is the impressed mark definitely a deliberate mark, rather than just an indentation that didn't get ground out because it was deeper than the rest of the pontil scar?

It's most definitely impressed, and like a well squished msmall prunt. My mark is exactly the same as Lynne's, which is why I didn't bother photograhing it  ;D I did vaguely wonder if it was supposed to be a glassblower.

Hi Leni, no doubt it is deliberate, the edges are smooth, and it is a good 1 cm deep.  I talc'd mine because the patterning visible through the clear glass means it is impossible to see the mark on a photo.

Oh, what is the company that uses the glassblower on its label? ??? :-\  (Memory problems due to age - see cafe thread! :-[ )
