Talking about Odd bits of Glass!
« on: March 02, 2018, 01:19:22 AM »
I bought this only because nobody on ebay wanted it and it was so cheap for something of this quality (why do they buy Chinese?).

I have it in my main display area because I like it so much. This and the bullicante thread below are the 2 odd balls in my A.S. display.

It has a channel up the front leading to the spout but this is definitely a vase in my house.

37 cm (14.5") tall, 20cm (8") wide and weighs 2.6kg (5 Ibs 11oz)

P.S. It also reminded me of A.S. Nastro Rachiamato vases that are beyond my reach.
Clean and Crisp a Murano twist.
Archimede tops my list.

It really has a personality, doesn't it? Wonderful work too.
Well done. And more fool those that didn't recognise it's quality. ;D

Sue, it is not everyones taste but it grabbed me.  Yesterday I was looking at the top ebay bids on 'collectors weekly' and 5 of the top 7 were cheap copies, mostly of faces, of which there are hundreds out there.They look Chinese to me.

I do feel sorry for people who pay 4-500 dollars on a piece of rubbish that is worth 30 bucks at best.

There's a learning curve for everybody. And far too many unscrupulous folk around. :'(
