I have several Wedgwood mushrooms and the cap doesn't seem to be as deep as on yours - mine are wider and shallower. Also I have never seen this colour on wedgwood either - doesn't look like the wedgwood shade of amethyst to me - although that could be the photo.  :usd:

The glass itself looks suspiciously like neodynum.

It is a wedgwoody shape - but I don't know what it is. I like the optical effects of it being clear glass, I would prefer it, personally, in daylight , where it should be a greyish blue colour.
(I can't stand this pale pinky/lilac shade  :-X)

Did Wedgwood use neodynum glass? Anybody know?
