Same latin root; yes, Paul.
I always have to stifle a giggle when folk say they want to see glass "in real life", given that's technically the opposite of what they mean...

And after consulting with Christine, here's a footed sweetmeat/bon-bon footed dish that I was lucky enough to purchase yesterday.

Dimensions are 17.3mm widest x 6.4mm high.

very nice  -  these things always make me think of the word psychadelic.             Is this really less than one inch across and a quarter of an inch high? :)

I have passed the comport onto Tina Neale and David King, who will be displaying it on their stand at the Cambridge Glass Fair.
