At the moment it's shut in the dining-room - to keep it safe from the cats.
But I think it's going to end up in the middle of my "glass-wall" of shelves in the sitting room. It's just too fantastic not to give it a very prominent place!
I forgot to say, it's 11" tall. It's a big beast, but the tiny details are just amazing, from multicoloured stripes and twists, the inclusion of tiny sparkly bubbles in the spirally long bits, the colours in the leaves - which look as if they have been produced in the workshop with silver or copper.....
I'm not sure the bulb bit is borosilicate glass - it looks more like crystal from a pot - there is a latticino sort of bit in it, and a blue glowing bit which looks as if silver salts have been used - incredibly complex, loads of different techniques combined, (I think. It merits a bit of research to find out exactly all that is going on in it.)
Christine and I did think it would be up your street, Leni!
