Hi Anne Not sure why some of my pictures appear the wrong way up, you have to click on them, then they correct themselves when larger. There are uploaded from my phone.
Thanks Mike
I've a funny feeling I could not have resisted it either.
Something like that forces you to smile whether you want to or not, and to own something that cheers you up daily is not to be sniffed at.
The previous owner of my vase thought it was Bjorn Wiinblad, almost understandably, and wanted a Bjorn Wiinblad price for it...

But who could resist the allure of the completely unhinged face carved into it? Not me!

Oh, Gareth, I seem to not have your email address (I think I've changed computers since we last corresponded), so if you can drop me a message...
Glass / Thomas Webb cut glass vase - pattern help please.
« Last post by Scott13 on Yesterday at 05:22:27 PM »

Its backstamp suggests that it was made between c1936 - 1949.
The Webb bit has been virtually obliterated by the base wear, although I can just about make out
the second bís flourish.

Ht. 18cm ( about 7Ē )

Havenít been able to find its pattern - perhaps someone might be able to recognise it.
Thanks for looking.

These really are stunning and special pieces, and just one small set existing makes them a bit of a rarity.

It's reminding me of the Bjorn Weckstrom foot goblets. I have one of them, the unsigned one. (I can't remember if there are a total of 5 or 6)
Robbo has all the others. He let me have the one I do because he's kind and it lacked a signature. ;)
