That's interesting that they did cutting/polishing inside.  I never knew that was a common technique in cameo.  Was it done by many firms?

Beautiful pieces!  I especially like the lamp base.  How I'd love to have something like that, even if only for a little while.

Chervenka describes and illustrates how grinding out the design from inside the vase brightens the colours and is a good test for a repro or fake. It is worth by the book for the info and pictures. Just $25 new. ISBN 0 87349 236 6

I found it on Amazon for $0.98 New -
ISBN-10: 0873494369
ISBN-13: 978-0873494366  (Is this right?)
What do the different ISBNs mean?

I'm grabbing a copy, sounds like it's worth the price at least!  Thanks for suggesting it.

...EDIT:  Whoops, different book.  That was the right ISPN.

Thanks, Christine!  Sometimes my questions just slip out before I realize that I can just as easily look it up myself, rather than trouble others to do it!  Wikipedia has its faults, but in general it's a pretty phenomenal resource.

At least by asking you will get told of Wikipedia is wrong. A differing number would be a different printing/edition.
