Large round glass block with space in the middle = teawarmer
« on: October 30, 2012, 05:33:02 AM »
Hi, Im new to the forum and was wondering if anyone could tell me what this is please and who the maker is as im listing it for sale and dont want to get it wrong. It measures 6 cm tall x 13.5 cm diameter and weighs 1.6 kg. There are 4 bobbles in the centre set in a square.
Thank you

I think it's a tea warmer; the bobbles are to secure the tealight. Your pictures are too small to blow up though. Make the longest dimension 700 pixels when you resize and you should be OK

Hi and welcome to the board. I agree with Christine, that this is a teawarmer. A search of the board will bring you up a range of other designs that we have - I have several of these - they look fab as tealight holders without a teapot on the top!

I've also, wearing my Moderator hat, changed your subject to something more descriptive, to help with future searches. For why subjects are important please see www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,17458.0.html, ta! :)

This is a particularly attractive one as its simplicity makes a good design statement. 
There is one like this on eBay at the moment which is listed as Whitefriars.  Are there any Whitefriars experts here that can confirm this is Whitefriars?

Definitely not Whitefriars. It's cast glass for a start and Whitefriars didn't used that technique
