Just looks like clear frosted to me Sue  :-\

I've just had a another look at my green lady and as well as colour matching a frosted Sowerby bowl I've just identified from Glen's CD, her base would appear to be identical to the one of this lovely lady on Glen's site http://www.geocities.com/carni_glass_uk_2000/AndromedaVas.JPG. Eight ribs between holes and the shadowing effect at the bottom of the holes. From the bottom to the top of a rib measures 1.5 inches ... GLEN...

Further to the above reply, I see that Glen also speculates, in Sowerby's Ellison Glass Works Volume 2, that my lady is Sowerby, i.e., that Sowerby made three ladies: the one known as Flora, the more common Stump lady and my brazen hussy. They are certainly all found with ribbed bases that appear very, very similar. Anyway here is my girl sitting in a Sowerby 2549 fruit bowl; she's certainly a very good colour match. Click to enlarge

So I think I was probaly wrong Pamela. Your lady and her bowl may not be a marriage

bowl ok, the lady arrived smashed, broken  :'(

as my old Pentax doesn't work anymore I've got a new camera today and took some shots for the seller for a hopeful refund

as far as I can see on these first photos (being shocked I left the glass in the musuem) the base / flower block is NOT ribbed

more tommorrow

Anne, pleeeease may I again ask you to upload another photo for me - I promise to learn that soon, but not under these circumstances - thank you  :-*

Christine and Anne thank you! It's really a shame because I had asked for double boxing ... at least a separate box for the lady  >:D
Back to the glass: I guess a shall be able to investigate her at least regarding possible marks (Czech like the ballerina Anja had?)  everything is still possible - I'll let you know
Thanks again for your real friendship - very much appreciated - I feel better after you have posted  :-* :-* :-*

This thread has made me have a closer look at my 3 Stump Ladies.I did know before that one was a different size, smaller and had the ribbed base, where the other two didn't   On closer inspection of the 2 I thought where identical(excpet clorour) I have discovered , when I turned them upside down,that they have differences too.
Would you like me to take some pics and show?
Julie
