Am I missing something?
« on: August 31, 2006, 03:19:05 PM »
Hello People

Flick here again with a great lump of glass (the thing is, the only recreational shopping I get to do here in Geneva is charity shops as everything is sooooo flipping expensive, which is why I bother you all with this stuff).

There is a "test-tube" shape in the "back" which is not enclosed making it unusable as a vase so am I missing a bit?  The quality is that of another great lump (thanks to Ivo for identification of that) so it may be Zweisel.

Any thoughts?  I'd be very grateful.

 :D

Oooooh nice!  I've seen these somewhere but I can't remember where now (sorry to be unhelpful) but I think Max is probably right with Walther anyway.  I just wanted to say I liked it :-)

Thank you Max and Pip

I've just noticed there's a ruddy great chunk out of it at the top middle :x  Why didn't I notice it before!  I still like it though.

 :D

You'd be surprised how many times that's happened to me.  I think I get blinded with excitement and don't check properly...  :lol:   I hope your piece wasn't expensive Flick, and at least it'll be a good lesson learned.  :D

Flick, I can't tell you the number of times I've bought something only to get it home and find a huge chip or crack running through it.  Hubby (who's got a much sharper eye for damage than I have) now has to have the quick once over on any glass I want to buy!  Still, as you say, it doesn't notice on your particular piece - and unless you want to sell it on it's unimportant from a display point of view.
