Thanks Anita.....but the things are not cracks on the inside, they are like formed folds. Like when it was made.
So when I saw these inside folds, I thought "Where was Quality Control on this piece at the Shop? As I know there is bound to be imperfects in glass, but not something this sloppy on the inside. IMO, they are from the day it was made.
So I was just wondering with this piece (and it is worth the discussion) that didn't the Murano glass makers have a Quality control? Would not somebody be checking even the inside of the bowl, or IF this damage happened right then when they were making it (the folds, and the 2 ends) that is it not possible that this could happen. I know we do not want to think that, but lets face it. These were people making glass, so is bound to be misfits even for them. Look at the Coin World that is stamped by machines and they still *ends up in circulation misfit printed coins*. So that was what I was thinking here. This might be a misfit that was made at the shop, then was altered to fix it up.......and maybe......just maybe, the second grind on the bottom was put there that this is not sell-able, so they put that extra grind in it -- to make sure it does not get past Quality control.
Maybe then they re-break the glass, and re-use it................or maybe somebody just decided to take it home anyways at as a misfit, and free of Charge.
I know I am stretching things here, but that is why I will keep it anyways....and it made me stop and think that in almost every thing made in the world by man, or machine --- there are bound to be misfits that somehow *still* get into circulation.
Of course, I can NOT say this is one, or this is what happened...................but, is it not possible that this could.
I was on a site the other day too about Coke bottle that had flaws in them, and somehow they managed to get into circulation.....because took it home from work years ago.
So that is what I wanted to bring it up here. I know we know they are master Glass-makers, but there also has to be misfits made there that (like anything else) somehow got into circulation.
I just wanted members to stop and just think IF this is possible..............and is there any possible misfits out there like in the coin world. As I just think that sometimes even back then...even if a piece was bad, and could not be sold..........is it not possible a maker, or AN apprentice/labor was given it Free just to have, and take it home....or even for one to practice there polishing skills on (or to play with at work) then took it home.
I am jumping the bridge here a bit -- but I think it worthy to think that "that could also happen."
Is it possible that some glass was never fixed by a Seller, but rather was altered or tried to fix at the glass shop....and then just someone kept it as a freebie, and then through the years (with deaths) it ended up in the market.
Just something worthy to think/discuss about -- as we know there are misfits made with everything, and just have never talked about IF this could happen there. Far stretch, I know.....but it had to happen a few times....
i be right back, just gotta make some more :t: here!!
