14 inches !!!
Is it the streaks and the cracked off pontil which make you think it's HW ?
Whats going on with the rim ?
Is it wobbly / wonky or a trick of the light ? If so is that further evidence of HW ?

All their vases were essentially end of day pieces ?

all were end of day peter, i've never seen a straight rim on any and all the rims are very thick, all were made from left over stained glass as far as i know
