Paperweight with Y shaped pontil
« on: January 17, 2013, 02:49:59 PM »
Hi

Only a couple left to go!

2.5in round paperweight with a thick swirl inside in greens and blues with some bubbles within the swirl. There is a pontil mark which is round with a Y shape in the centre. I have attached photos - the pontil mark is not actually white - I just added powder to make it show up!

Thanks for looking

Ros

Uredale Glass; it's a glassblower not a Y
