Thanks for your help.
I wonder how many collectors at antique fairs just walk away thinking it's a crack.
If I'd seen the imperfection before I purchased it, I probably would've chucked it back on the shelf. This was about 4 years ago when I knew very little about anything. I just thought it was a cheap piece of carnival glass. Boy, was I wrong. :lol:
The thing that attracted me to it was the gold lustre and the various pinks and purple's you can see in it.
A few weeks after the purchase I realised that it was hand blown rather than pressed.
So I did the wrong thing and went to a local auction house to get it valued. Apparenlty, he didn't know what it was either.
Heck, he didn't even know that a glass vase I showed him was Whitefriars. He said it was Checkoslovakian. I eventually found out that it was a Whitefriars "Chess" shape vase and sold it for Â£70 on Ebay.
And so here it is, up for sale on Ebay and at Â£16.00 already.
If anybody has any cheap pieces of carnival glass out there give me a call (just kidding)! :lol:
