ooh I had no idea that was how they were done.  Thanks :) btw I  read in Charles Hajdamach 20th century British glass, that those crinkly hyacinth vases (do you mean the pastel coloured ones with stripes of crinkles and gilt?) were imported from Czechoslovakia and sold in the UK.

ignoring my contributions, there were some sensible and interesting comments from people - re this kind of surface decoration -  in this link....http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,35577.msg193030.html#msg193030

thanks Paul good to link the pieces together for if the subject comes up again.  The description given of the overshot in Neuwirth of the piece being rolled in shards is the correct one for these pieces - Pamela's photo close-up is a good one (better than I managed to get this evening so didn't post them).

Most probably Harrach 1860's

Mine does not have a snake on it but has an extra gilded knop above the foot instead - despite this I think it is highly likely mine is also Harrach.
Rather irritatingly I sold a covered box a while ago.
