The clear casing seems visible in the first photo uploaded, you can see it at the top of the bowl.  A lovely bowl  :thup:

I paid £25 for mine, after haggling over a flea bite on the pontil.  If you follow my link to the whitefriars site, you'll find a discussion about the price. Seems it varies hugely.

I once sold a whitefriars elephant's foot on ebay and think I got about ten or twelve pounds for it, my son sold one recently and his fetched under £3.50. Luck of the draw I guess. Hope you enjoy it, it's one of my favourite pieces too.

For some reason the Ruby Whitefriars is'nt all that popular, unless its an unusual shape. ive got quite a bit of it boxed up somewhere, although i do think the value will come back up, its certainly at a low at the moment.
I have to say the ruby is probably my favorite colour well its between that and kingfisher.
all the best
