You can see how elegant the neck and rim of your Fish are, you can see how different that is to the rather thicker shorter rims and necks of the holey-cut-ices.

I still forgot to mention the button rim side-stripe. It's a button rim side-stripe, the nicest kind. ;D
You've made a good load of desirable additions to your collection, I'm notat all  surprised you're showing off, and thank-you for doing so. :)
Cheers, Sue (M)

Really fine fish vase, think I saw it at the Glass Fair but I could not justify buying another in amethyst, good as it is. Great buy, they don't crop up very often.

How tall is the lollipop with the cross? Can't remember seeing another.

Is the amethyst Fish the one that was made for Helen Munro-Turner?
I did see that at the fair, having first seen a photograph of it about 17 years ago.
It does look quite like that one.  :)

It was the one at the glass fair, strangely it was actually for sale online sometime in Novemeber and I wasnít able to acquire it then but I managed to get this for far less than what it sold for in November which puzzled me. But Iím happy I have it now.

It was indeed the one made for Helen, came with some paperwork with some background info regarding that.

The lollipop with the Maltese crosses is 6.25 inches high and 4 inches wide (at widest point).


I have some other items that arrived today and Iíll add those to this topic later on in the week.

Thanks Patrick for the photo of yours, do you believe it to be Harris era or perhaps just after as Sue suggested?




Sorry for the late reply.........

I can not say if it is a piece made in the Harris era.

I bought it because it looked unusual.

Cheers,

Patrick.

The shape of both lollipops (particularly with Patrick's example) is reminiscent of lollipops made at Isle of Wight Studio Glass in the early 70s, just realised the small lollipop on the left in my group photo from Mdina has a similar shape too.

I would tend to think that your lollipops with the bubble in the centre are part of the experimentation during Harris' time, shapes did evolve after he left and some were made in larger sizes too. The slightly stocky neck in the original post is much like the neck of the fish vase (also with early blue label).
