No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

Having the right books is a great aid in identifying glass.
To help you find the most useful books we have put together "book-seek.com"

Don't rule out modern Chinese: at least one of the factories over there is producing some very competent lampwork (as well as less competent stuff that ends up being sold in Murano).

Looking at the side, the set up is positioned really low in the piece and the bottom curve is almost completely lost.  I'd agree with the comment about the bottom having been re-ground and polished.

Maybe ...

You could ask Eric himself.   He's selling the weights on ebay himself - e.g. 330280124282
Weightforit   -  mad about marbries, crowns and swirls ...
