No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

Having the right books is a great aid in identifying glass.
To help you find the most useful books we have put together "book-seek.com"

I sent an email to Roger Tye asking about my nose vase and recieved a lovely reply, below is what he said.


 
Indeed it is a piece from my now defunct Phoenix studio.
We in fact made these as oil lamps with a small wick- holder, or perfume bottles in which case they had a stopper with a wavy top to it.
Where did you get it?
If the hole in the top is @ 5mm then it is likely to be a oil lamp for which I still have some wick-holders.
If it is then let me know and I will send you a couple.
 
Best regards
 
It is so nice when artist's take the time to reply, now i know it is not a vase  :D

What a lovely reply Sue, and well done Mr Tye!  It'd be super if he drops by as well. :)
