This is number 2 from this morning. And forgive me now for what I am about to say...
I like this a lot, but it was sold to me as Bohemian and I really was not convinced. So I have a deal with the dealer that I can return it next week if it isn't and I don't want to keep it
I know it shouldn't matter if you like it, but I am trying to be very careful about what I buy. I need some help to try and id this as my searches haven't thrown up anything - I don't really know what to use as keywords for this one.
I have searched the Gordiola site and Lafiore thoroughly as I did think it might be Spanish. I have to say it is quite a fab piece really. It's 7.5"wide by the same high, the glass is full of tiny bubbles, it glows slightly yellow under blacklight and the amber bits glow bright orange, including the neck. The neck colour is quite intense and then fades into a ring round the base of the neck that is much paler orange, then fading into the clear. The bulges/ribs can be felt on the outside, so it is kind of pumpkin shaped. The trails/drips are very pretty and on top of the clear so stick out from the vase.
The ribs/bulges continue onto the base and the pontil mark is a very neat snapped off circle, left as a neat rough ring but smooth in the centre of it. The glass is full of absolutely minute bubbles.
Any thoughts on where to search, country of origin,etc greatly appreciated.
