Thank you both
Yes Sue, the grapes do in fact hang from "stalks and stick-y bits"
It's one of the things I liked about this engraving. I tend to avoid the basic 'grapes on a vine' engraving, as it usually feels a bit clichéd and 'lazy' to me, but these are really beautifully done! However, because I don't have many examples of grapes, and certainly no other examples of Jack Lloyd's work, I'm still wondering exactly what the seller meant about the grapes being 'different'! :huh:
I've just looked back to the thread about Tudor crystal here: http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,35810.0.html
Scrolling down to the end, it looks to me as if, in Ming's last picture of the Tudor glass engraved by Jack Lloyd with three images on it, the final picture shows a bowl of fruit with bunches of grapes which look very like the grapes on my bowl!
