Now, this is an impressive piece of architecture
An old family piece, definitely 19th Century, it stands at least 2 foot tall
weighs a ton, a long air twist stem, must be 3 inches wide, i think the metal is
plated, there is (or was) some kind of nymph in the centre, unfortunately my Auntie
is a bit eccentric, and has hidden it ,(hopefully not thrown away), something about her
rather strange religious views about depictions of icons or something :cry:
I very much hope its in her loft somewhere, but she wont say :spls:
The round bubble on the base is hollow, i suppose base is 7 or 8 inches wide,
I forgot to look today, i seem to remember there is a polished pontil.
I know size isnt everything, but hey, this is some piece of glass!
I think its probably Stourbridge, but any clues or ideas, and comments, welcome.
