..., and a hollow paperweight with a button top in this design, with a lobsterpot on it...

Is that the one? It's from the 1986 "Sea Shanties" series - mimicking fishing floats.

... love the lobster vase ...

Warning: the Sea Shanties are not vases, but fishing floats, i.e. hollow, but closed .... originally designed to keep fishing nets floating.

It's like that, but turquoisey blue, Wuff. :thup:
However, I don't think mine would float - there's a big crack in the button top. :thud:
But I'm delighted to hear I have one less paperweight than I thought I had.  >:D

Sorry Sue, engraved and designed by Denis Mann. Following an recent e-mail enquiry I updated the entry on SG here I will, in time, add images of the other design. Engraving can look like sb sometimes.

Frank, would my one be engraved by Andrew Webster, which Lustrousstone thought might be the AJW initials?

You might like to look at my Bawley vase which is very similar.  http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php?topic=39379.new;topicseen#new

There the type of Boa was named and the letters of the etcher/engraver added.  Perhaps yours id the same type of vase.

By the way I think it looks like the Santa Maria the flagship of Columbus  (see added picture of a replica boat)

I'm not positive about a Santa Maria id. - I think a lot of boats looked like that!

Yes, engravers are differentiated by initials... each piece thus being unique. It was silly of me to say designed AND engraved by DM. Sometimes I forget to read what I write. Not that the 'Cog' is the type of ship engraved not the name of the vase. The other 3 engravings are named in the link in my earlier post, will add images to SG when I have time.

Denis did use the sandblast technique,  as the one on Franks site was mine and it was sandblasted not engraved, also the paperweight on Franks site somewhere, called the something rose was also sandblasted
