Satinated cranberry posy vase with twisted cane decoration
« on: April 02, 2012, 05:01:14 PM »
This littel posy vase has me completely stumped, it looks like cranberry glass with twisted canes that have been pulled into feather like decoration. It has a satin finish that does not extend to the base and a cut and polished rim. About 9cm tall and 10cm in diameter, fairly thinly blown and it seems quite well made to me.

Help! Any ideas?

John

This reminds me a lot of the kind of vases I saw at Broadfield House, all beautifully perfect in the trails etc. It's gorgeous.

Yes it is pretty and the satin finish makes it nice and tactile too.

It took me quite a while to work out how to describe it, hopefully I have been accurate.

It's very hard to work out how it was made because the white is in perfect horizontal lines but looks as though it was part of the yellow trails. Check it under a UV light for me and feel the inside. I wonder if  a trailed and combed "starter" has been blown into a horizontally ribbed mould, reheated and the blown in a smooth mould.

No reaction at all to UV.
It feels quite smooth inside, no evidence remaining of a ribbed mould. The yellow and white decoration forms a very thin layer on the outer surface.

Is it causing meoptical illusions?

It looks as if the surface is "stepped" from a horizontally ribbed mould.
Is that just the combination of the horizontal white lines over the yellow ones, or is it real?

It does that to me too, but the outline is smooth.

It is quite smooth on the outside too, the only place I can feel any deviation from smooth is where the lines bunch up tightly together on the shoulders just below the neck.
