Cut crystal vase - Any Ideas
« on: November 23, 2012, 03:12:52 PM »
I don't usually buy cut crystal but this attracted me and was very cheap. Heavy walled and 8" high. It has a pattern of teardrop like cuts with a tiny cut added like a stem. It has a traditional star cut base. Can't photo very well but here it is any way.

Whitefriars cut lacks the stem of this one.
