Another example of Webb Alexandrite, this time a 6 inch plate. Managed to capture the fabled 'chocolate' colour in the third photo.

Very nice John, but I notice the moulded diamond optic is not present. I wonder if that's normal?

There was a glass which was just optic ribbed for sale (locked away in a cabinet with other expensive stuff) at the Cambridge fair when Christine brought her diamondy one to show us.

your (fabby, fabby) plate does look as if it is a bit wavy - is it optic ribbed?
Wavy is how that would be on a plate. ;)

That wave is just in the amethyst band (it repeats eight times, like eight gentle crimps).

Not all is diamond optic it seems, the plate in this completed ebay auction has many more undulations and a pattern in the centre too, not so sure about the bowl being Alexandrite though: click here

It's really hard to tell from those images.  ???

The colours really do come out differently on almost every single piece, don't they?
I see there is a fingerbowl underplate the same shape as yours, but almost no colour at all - just goes from clear and yellowy through to blue.

My complaint was more about the sort of pictures taken (not showing the glass to its best advantage, unlike yours  ;) ) and the difficulty of even seeing them in that silly moving, jerky enlargement box bit...
