James, did some of them have visible casing at the bottom then and some not? or is it just an odd picture in the catalogue that some look to have a thick cased bottom and others dont?  I find all catalogues quite hard to work out  :-\ when comparing to the real thing,  especially when they are in black and white (and worse when they are drawings rather than pics even)
Andy - whatever it is, it's very beautiful.

I very much appreciate the information, and id love to see your photos.

I have seen a couple over the last twenty years or so but not in that colour i know its right because Ray Annenberg was with me at the time and if anyone knows he does , i believe at least one was mostly tangerine or amber , they were a problem to make and i think some turned out a bit naff .

James looks to be right IMHO and the shape fits other Studio range pieces. It's very nice Andy

Morning all,
please dont worry at all about letting me down, the piece came with other items at auction , including handpainted
Coalport, so i got a really really good deal!  ;D
Very happy that its a quite uncommon example, and i would be interested if James or Ray have any idea of how big the
production was ?? Would that be documented?
Am i right then, that the information in the book, is a little off the mark? As i said 1996 is quite a while ago, and more
information is always appearing.
Its a lovely piece, i will enjoy owning it for a while, but you may find it popping out onto a certain auction site sometime
in the future, as it deserves a more permanent home with some of its mates!  ;D
Thanks again to all,
fascinating stuff
Andy

Morning All,

Thanks John and Chris... ;)

Below is a picture of my 9886 in Ruby and Kingfisher. Will dig out the 9882 at the weekend.

Hopefully you can see the pattern Ruby body with Kingfisher and silver chloride pulled through. Also, seeded bubbles within the pattern.

I'm not sure how many were made, I don't think the work books exist from this time but I guessing less than 200 for the range (Just a guess). The 9886 seems to be the most common I sold one on a well know auction website in November for £140.

I don't care what wfs official name for it is, it really doesn't look as if there's any Kingfisher blue in any of these.
The effects look to be purely those of silver chloride, which also produced the bubbles - they're not seeded.
 >:D

Is the problem whether or not it is one of two differing experimental or small ranges? I'm not quite following the discussion.
I only have the Lesley Jackson book, and my eyes can't cope with trawling the catalogues, especially when the images don't always show the items clearly.
Cheers, Sue (M)

Well Sue, you know your Silver Chloride!  ;)
Thanks James, all very interesting.

Maybe a mod should now move to British Glass, without the 'experimental' in the title.  :thup:

Suns shining , looks great in it! Heres a couple more photos.
Cheers Andy
