The annual bump
I've been wondering if this might have originated from Gordiola glass. It's not a colour I've seen them use, it's not amber, it's orange and clear. It's also not something I've seen anywhere before.
However looking at it again this evening, I observed a couple of things:
- The neck and rim are completely handformed and have been applied separately to the vase. It's been neatly done but it's what might have been described as 'half post' (I know that's not a correct description but for the sake of using one that others might understand).
- The base is indented as in antique glass and it has a snapped off pontil mark.
- The glass is full of tiny bubbles and stones
To all intents and purposes it looks older than the 1930's to me.
Gordiola used a ribbed shape mould to blow those vases with the spouts and they have indented bases as well as snapped off pontil marks with the ring left like this one I think iirc?
Anyway, I've added some clearer pictures now.
Thanks for any more thoughts or leads
