Click any of the three main images to enlarge.

H. 5¼" 13.7cm, d. 4¼" 10.7cm, w. 1lb 5½oz 606g.   16 point full base star.   12 repeats of the cut pattern around the vase.   Top edge neatly ground flat, chamfered and polished.   The lovely striations caused by the cutting wheel are just visible.

I would be grateful for anything known about the vase and/or the label, such as dates, pattern name and number, other sizes and shapes, designer, &c., &c.

Thanks for your interest,

While sorting for tomorrow's glass fair I noticed that it carries a faint acid badged mark.   It's the circular mark "WEBB CORBETT ENGLAND" with "64" for 1964 in the circle.
