ooh thank you both
yes Nigel, I couldn't work it out either and didn't ask for a base pic because I just thought it looked a bit special - always a gamble lol as I've had plenty turn up , bought on that basis, that turned out not to be special at all. It's a difficult one to photograph and his pics did not show it off at it's best, which is why I thought the little darker splashes were flakes of mica on the close up. But he described it as pinky and I know aventurine shows up badly in photographs and often gives off a pinkish look, so I took a gamble. Very glad I did.
Is it a rare colourway then perhaps? (she says all excited just in case) I've been through Frank's site with a fine toothcomb and cannot find anything similar. I can find (and I have one piece with) the aventurine and bubbles in various pieces, but only in combination with colour and decoration of some sort.
I'm so happy about this piece
- I love the shape and pleased to have something a bit 'different'.
I don't have anything in this colour for my 20s/30s collection, so it's just perfect in every way
