 :hi: It might be. Is it marked?

How is the glass put together? - it's hard to tell what is glass and what is reflections of colour.
Is there a sort of dome in the base, with the bubbles around it, inside the glass and then the bubble pattern sweeps sort of back on itself to the outside of the glass via the base. Some of your bubbles look a little bit untidy....

Which bits are clear and which are coloured?
Cheers, Sue (M)

it looks right Keith  -  has that almost 'ginger' shade of amber  -  the bubbles look as though break out at the bottom (giving one or two very small holes in the base), and density of bubble seems about right.  The ground/polished pontil also looks o.k., and you seem to have appropriate age wear on the base.    I have only four pieces from the 'flair' range, and must be honest and say that they do all have a back stamp, but then we do know that no all Webb was marked, as we have discussed before.     It looks 'right' to me.   :mrgreen:     It'll be o.k. when David produces his book on Webb ;)

I agree - thanks for explaining Keith - I see how it works clearly now, absolutely correct.

It is Webb Flair, just unmarked. :smg:
