Thank you for the photo for shape comparison. I see your vases have rounded profiles to the feet, whereas mine has a gentle taper. Funnily enough, I'd placed the vase next to two S&W vases (will post photo tomorrow) which have a better overall finish. It appears to have the random bubbling and slight streaking effect of a designed 'antique' range.

Two more photos. I hope the pic of the vase appears to be in sharper focus on the body of the vase than yesterday's attempt, which required manual focus (I've weak vision these days).

The second shows the vase next to two S&W vases that I bought a long time ago.

What a lovely display, Keith. I think we do have similar tastes.  :) I love the light blue S&W used - sapphire? Or was that a WF colour name?

I've been looking for the globular vase with optic ribbing for a little while now, and a piece of the pink and green 'Rainbow' glass is a must-have for me - though husband disagrees.  ???
