I found this today ...I hoping its Nailsea window glass . Not sure what it is... could be a pestle for a Pharmacy window display perhaps  ! It's 17 1/4 inches long ! Thanks for having a look  ;)

I'm on a Nailsea glass hunt at the moment and I'm determined to find a piece  ::)

More likely an apprentice march frigger. To thin for such a long pestle!

Thanks very much Frank !

Pestle was the only description I could muster after racking my brains ??? ! I didn't have a clue  ::)

That would explain it !

John there's a right DoDo here in Bristol   :-[

JP, not a pipe tamper at 17-in long! More like the thing to stuff cannonballs down the barrel!  ;D

I have a pair of old knitting needles bought in the vicinity of Nailsea
slightly bluey green glass, full of millions of very stretched tiny bubbles.

Can't legislate for the accuracy of this article but it's quite nice reading.

Hmm, the first sentence is rather strange:
"Novelty items in glass, known as friggers or as Nausea glass"

This indicates the article was originally scanned and then OCR'ed, but it didn't interpret it correctly. Or perhaps the glass was feeling poorly...
