Large amethyst and ruby air bubble vases
« on: June 25, 2007, 01:29:21 PM »
These have been in storage for 20 years, so they're not recent.

One is ruby, the other one amethyst. Both have elongated nail mould air bubbles spiralling through the body. At 14" they're large vases. The bottom is a neatly polished out pontil mark.

Sweden or Germany perhaps??

I clicked on the link - and misread it as; "This secret file does not exist."  :-[

Heh heh heh Sue, that's not as bad as my mis-reading yesterday of a headline which I thought said Seance in cathedral for... when it actually said Service in cathedral for...   :-X
