Anyone recognise this pontil mark?
« on: December 15, 2017, 04:24:40 PM »
Just bought a piece of glass in a charity shop for the princely sum of 1!

Most glass marks I recognise straight off but not sure on this one and I purchased hoping someone could educate me!

Any help greatly appreciated  ;)

well, obviously I need educating too.          I wonder why we say the princely sum of x  -  I can't imagine there's many princes would be happy with one pound. ;)          Perhaps it's a case of irony?

I'd have preferred to see a more magnified image of the mark  -  it's not blowing up enough for me - and a picture of the whole piece would be useful.   thanks.

thanks  -  well, obviously it either someone drinking from a yard of ale, or as is far more likely, it the gaffer puffing down the blowing iron. ;D    Let's hope someone recognizes this pontil mark.

I did wonder, Greg, but as the image was small, I wasn't sure it was not just the way the glass had been snapped off.
So I'll add my vote to Uredale, now I've got a little more confidence somebody else saw what I did, and now I can see the whole thing. That does help, too. ;D
