Isle Of Wight Cylinder Vase Pink Blue? No Flame Pontil Mark?
« on: August 30, 2018, 10:44:51 AM »

Just wondered as i have not got any Isle of wight pink & blue swirls any more and have not had any for a few years if this was? I really am not sure as it has no flame either and cant find any pictures of any this small on the net. The base is polished but shows sign's of small scuffs so not modern glass and it feels like the sort of thickness you would expect for IOW earlier pieces any idea's welcome size below.
Height:16cm
Width:5cm

It looks perfectly right to me. The texture of the enamels is right - there does tend to be an almost oily looking finish and there are upright strands with tiny bubbly bits, all present and correct in this piece.
Some of these pink and blue swirls bits can show the pink turning green when light comes through it, but not all of them. I don't know the reason, but if you can see green when light is coming through it, that would also confirm id.
But I'm absolutely sure it's right.

That's great i had a hunch it might have been IOW  :)
 Why do you think they didn't use the flame mark on it i think i have read that they did not use it on the large bottle's and left them quite rough but and i think the other larger cylinder that i did see online had a flame mark i did wonder if it may have been damaged and cut down?
Thank you for a great reply. :)

Noticed this the other day which was new to me, it seems there were some trial bits made in the 1990s which would explain the base.

If it's later, that's a good reason for the lack of flame prunt over the pontil scar - but if you look at it, the clear base is really quite deep, perhaps the appearance would have been spoiled by creating a base to take the blob of hot glass to impress the prunt into, and they decided as there was so much glass on the bottom it would look better just left and polished flat?  :)

Having seen the ones on Anton's site, and finding they had trouble replicating it later on when they tried to re-introduce the range, I'd think this was early - because the colours are so right, down to the shape of the tiny bubbles and elongated bits.
Nobody had trouble with the colours on this one.  ;D
