What does the base look like Anne? The photo is a bit glary for me.

No idea kane, I just split the pic off from a multiple item topic. Perhaps J Richards will add more images for us. :)

Thanks anne... ;D Hi john, i thought the base of yours was similiar to this one I own (the better pic out of the series), from your first pic posted. But it is not.

I don't think it is a lamp base but yes a bottle vase. I call them that to as they are essentially useless for flowers! Is the colour amber/champagne or clear? A white background with a dark surface might bring the colour out better.

Forgot to add as well. How thick is the glass?
