Can you help me with this bonbon jar/vessel, it is a shade under 11"/28cm tall.
I call it a bonbon jar as I remember one as a child that had little round white sweets in it.
The 1st question, is it opaline or alabastro? I'm still not sure but lean towards alabasto, maybe the colour is confusing me.
The 2nd Q, does anyone recognise the label, I can't find it in the lists I have, I did wonder if it was one of the Seguso's.
the 3rd Q, the little crinkle marks at the base of the "finial ?" spike at the top of the lid.
the photo has magnified these as from a few inches away you can't see them.
are they something that one would count as damage. To me, because of their size they don't matter, but would the jar pass the perfectionist test ? Probably not.
Would this have happened in the anneiling oven ?
Thats the lot, I'l be interested in your thoughts :chky: :chky:
