I should also add, that now I've studied the image showing the sides in daylight, that I do not think this has actually been cut on both sides, sorry Paul.
It is cut on one side, the other side is simply marvered flat - it's still a bit rounded, and I can see the concentric rings which appear on the marvered side. So it is definitely a Cut-Ice Lollipop, and cut on only one side, as is usual for a cut one.

Is it my Lollipops or Fish you wish to see? Think I can dig out a Fish picture, but would have to get the camera out for lollipops.
Cheers, Sue (M)

I have to agree Sue I have just re examined the item in daylight and with my glasses on and as you observed it is cut and faceted one side
and simply marvered but not flat on reverse. I would like to see any of your 'lollypops' with the same patterning if possible also sizes please.
Regards Paul.

Ok, about as organised as I can get.
Pic.1;
A Cut-Ice lollipop, signed by Michael Harris. 8 3/8" tall x 7.5" wide, marvered flat on one side, cut into two faces on the other.
A slim, tall Cut-Ice lollipop, 8.5" tall x 5.5" wide. Two marvered faces on one side, two cut faces on the other. The funny wrinkly line on this one in the pic. is an effect of the marvered face on the "join" between the two bits of paper I used as background.

Pic. 2;
Two (later, I believe) Ice-Cut lollipops - the strapping inside is flatter, one is signed by Dobson.
a.) 9.75 " tall x 8" wide, two cut faces on the front, marvered flat on the back, signed by Dobson, 1974.
b.) 9.5" tall x 7.25" wide, two marvered faces on the front, back marvered flat, unsigned, large manufacturing flaw on the back.

Pic.3;

Again, I believe this to be a later one - it has reddish coloured streaks rather than aubergine - the neck is very roughly finished off - heat finished, but it still looks sort of broken. 9.5" tall x 7.25" wide, two marvered faces on the front, marvered flat on the back.

Ooh, very nice Sue. :hiclp:

Re your third photo, I would agree about the age and the colours used, similar to this bottle.

Gorgeous, John - I take it that's one of the cube vases - faceted on 4 sides?

(I reckon these are great - and seriously under-rated)

You can sort of see how it may have been developed from the Ice-cut shape and colour-design - it's not flattened, though - and you can also see the Tiger design emerging - I actually have a cube bottle which IS Tiger.
Cheers, Sue (M)

Yes, one of the four sided bottles, a lovely and heavy beast.
