Jim — At the Cambridge Glass Fair on February 18, 2007, there was a tiny (about 3Â½") Alexandrite posy vase on display, at least until it sold. All the colours were exactly as described above, and it weighed very little.
This was of bulbous shape with a very deeply crimped vertical rim. The body had been decorated using Webb's "Ball Mould" (also known as "Old English") pattern mould
, which Hajdamach dates to 1903 at the earliest, slightly later than other suggested dates for Webb's Alexandrite.
It's the first time I've knowingly seen Alexandrite apart from the plate in the 2003 exhibition, which I don't remember, and it gave me great pleasure to handle something so beautiful.
