4 inches tall, signed to the base, will ask her for a date later, heck of a problem piece to photograph, the stripes are a very pale blue.

It's beautifully made - like a sort of flower-pod thing blooming, the shape is all balanced.
I'm not going to say anything at all about the colours.
Yesterday, I was merely speechless about them. I had to go off and have a think about what to say here. ;D
Cheers, Sue (M)

If she's still making glass I'll ask her to be a little more considerate when choosing the colour  ;D ;D ;D

I have recently come to realise that a whole generation of new Grandmas has suddenly sprouted, they'll probably want "baby pink" and "baby blue".
(poor kids  ::) )

We're going to be grandparents again this week so pink 'is in' Heard from Jill, she no longer makes glass and said the piece was around 1986-90.

Pink and blue are actually not compulsory for babies.
Pink used to be the colour for boys and blue for girls, in Victorian times. It's only a recent fad put it the other way around.

Keith you are doing an amazing job of keeping records of glass. 
Looking back to only 150 years ago, I'm shocked at how many records are just lost/not well documented.  It's a terrible shame. 
And looking back to only 40/30 years ago, the same.
