Puzzled Patrick? if you meant to say 100% made at the factory why did you then add 'nice vase though'  :)

Thanks Chris

More photos of the vase with kingfisher strap, aqua lobe and green bubble vase, more green than blue I would say.

Both this and the meadow green Nipple Vase (on the Whitefriars.com link) where purchased from a glassblower who used to work at Hartley Wood. I'm sure that there are no know fakes of this type of vase but me and the owner are no experts and I know he has had this for many years.

Thanks for looking

An interesting piece Nigel, nothing like Kingfisher like you said pretty sure it's an experiment with colour that went wrong, looks closer to cased aqua which was a full lead crystal colour than anything else.
Pretty sure anyone with the other 4 will fancy adding this one to their collection should he decide to sell.
