Large Iridescent Paperweight! Ditchfield? Isle Of Wight?
« on: September 13, 2007, 06:42:42 AM »
Long time no see, I'm still buying glass just not as much...

...I bought this for a couple of pounds. I was surprised not to see a better finish on the base as it's a really nice iridescent weight. It's three and a half inches high so a good size. There are no signatures or anything.

Oh!  I shall watch this with interest, I have a pinky one almost exactly the same, iridescent but slightly matt, with the same ground base.  No signature anywhere.

I assumed it was nothing.  Fortunately (! - well just in case it is something good) nobody wanted to pay £6 for it at the boot today, so it has come back home.

I'll try to hoick it out later and add a pic here for comparison.
Thank you very much!

Did you know Ray Annenberg worked with Dillon Clarke for some time at Cambridge just after Whitefriars closed down.A short time ago i picked up a very nice robin he made there, he was thrilled to see it again, he ran off with it to show some friends it was hours before i got it back, i was so pleased i recognised it, the seller didnt know what it was, i did have an advantage as i have trawled around the country with Ray for the last ten years looking at and talking about glass. jph.

Certainly has some similarities to this blue vase and this pink vase
