hi paul

thanks for the offer re the book, much appreciated and the link to the g/fruit dish, lovely!

re: radiation levels, was  just checking out some of my glass and comparing the meerkats so to speak.

background radiation in my lounge is 11 mcR/h. the bubbly piece in question measured 16 so only a slight increase but a sowerby water glass patt no. 2481 registered 56 and a jobling jade candlestick from the 12500 dts was 163  ;D

I expect its either pseudo roman or mexican! but its an absolute doppelganger for yours.

Christine, will add a few pics, either here if Paul doesnt object to me hijacking his thread or on the main board?

cheers, Mel

It doesn't look right to me because the colour is not the same as the green in the book, I can't find a shape match and that little ridged bulbous bit between the foot and the bowl I can't find on any of the pieces pictured in colour in the book either.
Also that shape, and the ridged bulbous bit remind me of an amber crackle vase I have with green streaks running through it.  I don't know, I'm not sure, but it doesn't feel right to me.

hard to tell I know but here's a pic of the bulbous ridged bit between the foot and the bowl on my amber crackle vase with green streaks.
Mel you have a vase in this decor but a different shape.  How does your bubble vase compare weight wise etc with it?
In the second photo my pic is wonky not my bowl.

morning m,

yes, Im boxing in the dark a bit until the book arrives and even then I may not be able to get a firm attribution by the sounds of it  ::)

think is cloudy enough outside to go and look for a back stamp though  ;D

ref. my amber green crackle glass vase.

the walls were thick, 4mm and for a 15cm tall vase it was heavy - 950g , past tense has since been rehomed but no bulbous ridged bit between foot and bowl

in comparison, the bowl in question has a rim thickness of 5mm, is 13cm tall and weighs about 900g

cheers, mel

my amber crackle is approx rim thickness 4mm, 10.5cm in height weighs 920gms, diameter at rim 16.5cm.

What size is your green vase Mel and how much does it weigh by comparison?

those two crackles have to have the same parentage don't you think m? if only we knew who.

in comparison, the bowl in question has a rim thickness of 5mm, is 13cm tall and weighs about 900g

cheers, mel
