Yes, 99%, but a lot of it has passed through. I have nothing to match the c+s though; my Webb Alexandrite glasses are my best buy for ROI

I know this sort of thing isn't my area, but I cannot see that the cup and saucer are actually cameo work.
I'm positive I can see evidence of what looks like piping around the edges of the pink stuff.

is it white with a dark pink overlay, and then when the pink has been cut back quite a lot (acid etched?) it shows as pale pink as it's only a thin layer over the white, but where the outlines are it's been left thick so shows as dark pink maybe?

I would say it has been colored light pink, outlined in dark pink and then etched leaving a dark pink border. I can see in some places the dark pink outline has been completely cut away. There are only two layers, one of light pink with dark pink outlines and one of a creamy white color. The handle was attached after the etching and has a matte finish.
If anyone is interested they are selling several pieces and I don't mind sharing them with you.

Thanks for all the help,
B

Perhaps it was the camera angle in the first pics, catching the edges,?
and them being shiney made it look like the deeper pink was piped?
I'm still not convinced it's all cameo work, but as I said, this isn't my area!

You do say, though that you think the deep pink was "outlined" - that's what I meant by piped.

I'd like to be able to feel it!
We need the touchy-feely side to discuss glass properly... ::)
Hey ho.

What I meant by "outlined" is that it looks to have been produced by the action of taking away material and not adding it. Believe me, I am no expert but that's it what it looks like. If by piping you mean like icing on a cake, then it has definitely not been piped on that I can tell. The dark pink and the light pink are a continuous flat surface with no ridges. The ridge occurs only at the outer edge of the pink and drops to the creamy white.
