Additional information just came in from an expert  :cheers:

It turns out that "gold dust" is also applied as gold foil and then blown out. Which is quite logical: you would not want to fumble around with such an expensive fine powder. A sneeze could be very expensive indeed. :spls:

Ivo,

Does that likely make the dust in my piece of foil origin?  Which would also explain the Patterns in it like the "line"

Click image to enlarge.

Maximum height 8" 21cm
Maximum width 10" 25.2cm
Maximum foot diameter 4" 12cm
Weight 1lb 8oz 682g

After nearly five years, here is No. 2, turning a rather beautiful Walsh oddity into a Walsh mainstream product line.   This fan vase has a short stem, making it much easier to see how it was made.   The scale of the two vases is quite similar the two feet are almost exactly the same size.

I wonder what Walsh called the style?

Does anyone know of other examples?
