I'm now writing the description of the lamp base in preparation for listing it on eBay. I would like to start with:
"This is a beautiful Murano glass table lamp base in the form of a stylised dolphin or fish which dates, I believe, to about the 1950’s. The pink coloured glass is cased in clear and the fins and head have gold specks in the clear glass.
(With very many thanks to Laura at the Glass Club Message Board who confirmed these details for me.)"
I want to check that you're happy with this, or would you rather I didn't use your name?
Thanks again, and have a Happy Christmas, John.
