Have you gone AWOL Adam ?

No, just waiting for the professional (NB) to come along and id. You're partly right about the method because the trails have been dipped into an optic mould the same way the cloudy lattice was done, but it looks like this was also put into a pineapple mould to create the controlled bubbles, which is quite unusual, I think... ;)

Hi Ivo,

Not Nazeing IMHO, sorry. You'll need to hold onto that patience for a bit longer ;)

I was imagining one of the vases so often believed to be Monart, but honorarily given Czech status in the absence of any other attribution - so way off beam  :huh:

Cheers, Nigel
