Is this British made glass???
« on: July 01, 2013, 06:26:52 PM »
Greetings.

I found this piece of glass today at an estate sale. I was told the previous owner collected all things British - so I thought I might start here for help. Normally I look for and collect Bohemian glass but I quite like the shape, colour and iridescence. And it was cheap as chips. My first thought is contemporary glass but there is significant wear on the bottom.

Details: 6.25" high, 4" wide, snapped pontil.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.
Mac

As soon as I laid eyes on it, "S&W, Caerleon".  ;D
