Hello all
I know there are some Jobling experts on here so was wondering please about the colour of this vase I picked up in a charity shop yesterday?
Thanks in advance

Known as 'Pearl' though the factory name was apparently 'Moonstone Opal' according to Baker and Crowe. It was originally developed for lighting but also used for some art glass pieces early on. Some examples were apparently iridised too though I've never seen any in the flesh.

A fantastic find anyway. B1 Lambton vases are scarce in any colour.  8)

Thanks both of you...I have come across lots of Jobling on my travels but this is the first I have ever seen in this colour.
Is there a difference in this as a lamp or a vase?
