Isle of Wight large - any idea of the name of the design?
« on: February 16, 2007, 12:24:46 PM »
Two questions about this IOW - firstly the flame mark is very very faint and badly impressed.  Does this mean anything?

and does the design have a name?

Got an id now for Gold Aurene.  Great.

Looking at the pontil again, it seems very chunky for the flame mark, I'm reading about the coach bolt mark, but I don't know quite what that looks like... does anyone have a piccy?

Hi Lynne,
the coachbolt is about 2 1/2 cm diameter,, just looks like a blob of glass, that the round top of
a bolt was pushed into, so its like a little bowl, it does leave a little molten glass 'scar'
in the middle, but no flame mark.
Hope this helps,
i will try to get a good photo of one when i get time.
Cheers Andy

Thanks Andy, if it is that wide then this is just a scruffy flame mark. 
Still be interested to see a bolt mark if ever you have time to photo it.

Thank you Andy, that is most definitely an unmissable lump! 

So I can say without fear of error now that mine is NOT one of those...
