Paperweight bud vase
« on: June 24, 2007, 04:51:49 PM »
I'm fairly certain this isn't Chinese but.... The paperweight bit certainly has a greyish tinge and a fuzzy green (manganese) glow under UV, unlike the vase bit, which has neither! And it a b£&&%^ to photograph
Paperweight bit
Base
Close up
Any ideas please

Christine, on the base there appear to be some letters, can you make them out?

Thanks Glassnut
Anne, whatever the mark was I can't see it now, not with a magnifying glass or the camera macro

Just wrinkles in the glass, it's a very wrinkly pontil mark, like a beach at low tide

Yes, that's the ones Sue, I thought it looks like an M or a W or possibly a V and further along is what looks like an a or an o followed by what looks like an s. Christine, try talcing the base and see if anything else shows up, just in case. They don't look like random marks but are quite feint.

They're just ripples where it was fire finished, quite normal apparently
