 :) What is it?
A paperweight? A posy vase?
I'm afraid your pics don't enlarge well, the pontil scar looks heat finished rather than rough, from what I can see - but I can't see much. :-[

I am unsure to be honest.  It is bigger than a posy vase  9.5cm high.  Pics are a bit rubbish but all I got is my mobile. :-X  This one is a bit better

And there was I, contemplating Guernsey Studio.  ???
Penelope, when you say silver, do you mean a silvery grey colour, or sparkly silvery bits?

More likely Lustrousstone is right and I was completely wrong, then.  ;D Nothing unusual there. ::)
Silvery flakes of stuff is probably mica.

It is definately made from glass.  I never heard of Mica.  Is that the make or the style of glass with the silver bits?
