At some point this style of decoration got christened cobweb. Ysart Glass plates 30 & 117 described as mesh-like. I would suspect Sue is not far off the mark as to how it was achieved but a dip mould could also be responsible. More likely is marvering on a textured surface which would fit with the Ysart way of working. It could not have happened with the same technique as Cloisonné though.

Small chunks of clear glass on the marver would be a "textured surface".  :smg:

I was studying three bits of cobweb (all Vasart) at an antique centre on Saturday. There were definitely a good number of coloured glass "strands" snaking over the mostly clear blobs, which would be consistent with my theory.....
Cheers, Sue (M)
