Anyone familiar with this glass maker? I've uploaded the signature, but I can't read it.

UK?   American?

It's a really pretty piece, the flower and vines you see from the top are below the surface, creating a flow, and depth.

Lovely iridescence.

The diameter is only 2 1/2, view window 1" across, and height only 1 1/4"

Interesting weight.

Gerald Larcomb & Sally Wicht probably made in the 1970's , they were in western Ohio. I've had similar.

Thanks very much Fuhrman Glass, you nailed it.

I see from a previous members search on a taller member of this family of pieces, that you identified their piece then too.

The flowers and outer design are almost identical on their piece, and mine.

Thanks again for all the help, and knowledge.

Seems to be dated 1980?  Any idea of the dates they were working?

That was probably about the end of their work. Gerald committed suicide and that was end of the partnership. A very sad story.
