 >:D

Are you another one with twitchy fingernails, just itching to get at the tiny paint spots, Christine......?

Beautiful vase. I'd completely agree Verlys, but don't know anything about the ins or outs. I've had this vase in a gorgeous rosy amber colour.
Cheers, Sue (M)

Yeah there is quite a few little tiny spots all over it, on cheap pieces im fine with just scratching them off (quite enjoyable :thup:) but with this being a bit nicer i was a little nervous of flaking it, the bit on the bottom is quite thick... why oh why cant people use dust sheets or move things >:(.
I will give it a go tonight once little 'un is in bed.
This has to be up there with one of my favourite pieces of glass in my collection (sadly  :cry: its on the move soon)

Nail varnish remover will usually shift paint everything else fails at (including paint stripper). Soak a cotton bud in some and give it a rub.

Very good work on the Verlys attribution, but might note that Verlys of America pieces were made at the Holophane Glass Co. in Newark, Ohio. My employer, Fenton Art Glass, bought this and other Verlys of America moulds in the mid-1960s. We've made this Vessel of Gems vase in a variety of colors, and I think it looks best in transparent or opalescent glass rather than opaque. Incidentally, some folks like to call it the "golf ball" vase.

 :o

Not nail polish remover, please!!!!!!! - that just spreads it into any tiny pits in any satinisation on the surface!!

Fingernails. They won't harm the glass. :thup:
