Mike, sorry that you're confused.  About 10 month ago I had a topic on this light box.  When I posted a topic "Rainbow Glass" a few days ago some of the members remembered my light box and wanted to see the pictures of the box again.  Thus the topic of "Light Box".  

But if you can tell me who might of made this vase, please do.  I thought it was American Brilliant, but some people I know thought it could be Baccarat.  The stopper and the decanter have the same identifying numbers on it so I know that they are married.  The pattern has me stumped, I can't seem to identify it even though its a simple cut.

Ooops, I thought I was talking on the "light box" thread when I mentioned my vase.  To answer your question Mike, no this is not what I'm talking about.  This is old glass, maybe around 1900-1920's.

Are you referring to something like this?

Other than the green 'drizzle' that runs the length of the vase, the underlying layer is multi-colored, all on the same plane.
This is art glass from England, and from what I was told, extremely rare and expensive.

Yes Dave, this is what I'm talking about except that it's wheeled-cut and hand polished.

I am not aware of any wheel cut and then polished, but at least we got past the 'what are you talking about?' part!

Thanks Dave for all your help.  If I ever come across a picture of what I'm talking about, I'll make sure and post it.
