id request please for brandy balloons
« on: July 22, 2010, 07:32:56 PM »
balloons like this with ruby coloured bowls abound  -  and I peer at all of them looking for a wfrs. example.    When I saw this one I thought is was wfrs. Saphire Blue, so paid a couple of quid, then got home and realized that the real thing doesn't have a knop :ooh:   However, it is reasonably quality, with a ground rim, optic moulding, and this lovely blue - althought there is no colour in the stem or foot.   about 6.5/8inches - 168mm tall.   Flat underside (no ground or snapped pontil) and very little wear.    I suspect wfrs. produced the ruby bowls only.    Probably onto a loser, but if anyone does recognize the piece, would like to hear, and thanks for looking.   cheers.
