This pedestal weight is very badly damaged with an internal fracture, I assume an annealing fracture, so pictures have been difficult to take clearly. It has a round facet at the top and measures 7" tall. It weighs 2lb. It has four things that hang down from the top layer each with a bubble in the top of them (plus the odd random bubble near the bottom of the design) the top layer falls onto the bottom layer and the bottom layer is suspended in the clear glass rather than being set on a ground. I hope I've described it using the right words
(obviously 'things' is a technical phrase
I'm curious to know something about it.
What the design is called please? is it a harlequin or a fountain or something?
Is it made from what would be called 'frit', it appears to be little 'jellies' of glass rather than canes and some appear to have aventurine in.
It was sold on eBay as Murano - is it a Murano piece? Who made it?
And lastly date wise, when would this have been made? It doesn't seem new to me.
Thank you for your time which is much appreciated :sun:
