Stuart Peacock vase

1st post here.
Ive seen some clear Stuart vases here..... same size 6" tall. I thought it would be nice to share a pic of one of mine which I'm pleased to say has the green centres to the 'eyes'

Welcome.  :)
What a lovely image to be sharing for your first post, thank-you!
I'm sure others will be able to tell you more about it than I can, but it does seem to be a very unusual shape. :)
Cheers, Sue (M)

Cheers Chopin and Keith too.  Noway stiff Keith. It was because I saw yours that prompted me to get out my version and take a quick pic of it....... Then I realised that the image was huge and couldnt be posted so I went through half an hour of trying to reduce the file size of my photo.

Brilliant Keith. Many thanks. We live SO near and still not paid a visit to The Cone.
I need a piece cleaning and heard that we can take it along, leave it with them and collect another day... Any idea of cost for a small Powell bud vase with calcium bloom ?
I'll try adding a pic

Didn't know they did glass restoration at the Cone, I know they do at the Ruskin centre, could be risky cleaning 'bloom' out of a small vase it might not come back in one piece  :o ;D ;D

OH thanks Keith for correcting me... YES The Ruskin Centre is where I mean to take it and get advice. Not The Cone Museum.
Whilst discussing the Peacock eye feature of my Stuart pieces... and Keith's pic from the museum, I see a large bowl.
Here's mine which takes pride and place on the dining table at the moment. Quite a find at Builth Wells Fair.

Bloom can be disguised, for display purposes only, using a little silicon oil.
It would be absolutely wrong and illegal to disguise it in this way then sell it as perfect, but it would stop it annoying you.
It's also, perhaps, something you should look out for when buying.
The only way to remove it permanently is by grinding it off, using an abrasive and a turning machine. The bloom is part of the surface of the glass.

They are very good there, getting the bloom out would be difficult, I think, we had an old paperweight gently restored it took about 4 weeks as they are always busy but it cost very little, before and after pictures... ;D ;D
