Much, much better, thank-you!
Nothing compares to being able to cop a good feel of a bit of glass!
We have to make do with pics, but we do have a few tricks to bring things out, sometimes
I would suspect the stems are moulded, but the base does look hand made.
Taking an image of the base at a slight angle, allowing the reflections of the light hitting it to highlight anything, allows us to see any ripples or other signs of how it was made.
Is there a clear, round polished indent in the middle of the base? From straight on, it looks as if there might be.
That would indicate that it was being added by hand, when the hot glass is broken off the pontil rod, it leaves a scar, this is often removed by grinding and polishing out a round concave section where it was- the pontil mark.
