It's a band of clear glass around the base of the neck.
Bears some similarities with your amazing Sam Herman Platter....  ;D

Ok, thanks I had wondered, it almost seems to float on the glass looking at the photo.

In terms of the Herman charger, it was only after seeing your Louis Le Loup piece previously and looking into it further that I became aware that many of the Herman VSL pieces were joint collaborative pieces between the two.  :)

It was finding that out, the Sam Herman connection,  from the wonderful (and sorely missed - he's vanished from the glass world) Alister MacIntyre, Glashaus, that "allowed" me to splash out on this piece. His stand at fairs was always one of my highlights, he had such interesting and fantabulous stuff -  he was simply too far ahead for the uk's very conservative tastes in contemporary glass.
I bought this and my Jim Megura from him... and more... I will be putting pics up in the appropriately dated threads. :)

Paperweight from The Glasshouse (set up in 1969 in Neal Street,Covent Garden,London)
dated 1990 and signed either AM or HM (I thought it was HM for Helen Millard but looking afresh I might be wrong and it could be AM for Annette Meech? maybe) 3812 The Glasshouse

Thank you so much for confirming that Adam  :)  I'd not thought about it for ages until this thread came up then looking again, suddenly realised it might be.

I hadn't realised you had such a superb collection of Will Shakspeare bits, flying-free - or so many Peter Laytons... you dark horse, you! :-*

Hi :)
I only have one PL vase - I just can't find another that is 'the one' at the moment (the others are Greg's post :)  )
And at the moment, I have  only a small collection of Will's vases (I've kept those that have sentimental value) -  I've given many away  as presents over the years.  I've also given the paperweights  away as well, as they are perfect for 'boy presents' as they are quite 'masculine' large and very heavy, really quite sculptural rather than paperweights. 
I slightly regret giving away some of the paperweights to be honest, but we are near enough to him for me to find pieces by him round and about, and also to be able to visit to buy new pieces.  So I know I will be able to add to my collection.

 :-[ Doh... at the moment, 2+2 is just a non-symmetrical pattern on the page...
