Hello,

thought this may be Whitefriars, but unable to confirm that.

Stands 2.5" tall, cased and controlled bubbles.

The pontil is ground and a kinda rounded off square in shape.

All info would be greatly appreciated.

Jus & Kat   :D

Hello,
I think this is a base for a lighter, and mostly seen with generic Venetian Glass labels. Hope this helps you.

Thank you Javier,

we thought that it was a little small for anything other than a candle holder but then not a particularly well designed one. Really didn't cross our minds it being a lighter base.

Thank you for your prompt response.

Regards,

Jus & Kat
