Sincere apologies to both antiquecollectible and Mostly Modern for not welcoming you both!

(I got sidetracked by the glass, I'm afraid I have a rather one-track brain)

I don't think the Layton studio has been making irridescent glass for some time now... it is certainly not common.
Cheers, Sue (M)

I see there's currently a piece of Peter's work online with a similar type of base finish. Although a different design it is also iridescent, perhaps the piece at the start of this thread may also date to the 80s....?

Please do let us know if you hear back from London Glassblowing, it would be great to know what they say.  :)
