Thanks Wayne and the colour was one of the big things I had questions about in this vase. That and never having seen anything like it in A.S.
I have seen several of the ones you linked to but I convinced myself that this one is a better example. You may prove to be right in the end but having just spent 30 mins looking up Chribska and Japanese murano style glass, nothing is set in concrete.
I do suspect you have called the sub contractors and given them my address :bsh:
