Based on where you are, it could be one of the weights made at Pilkington's or it could be Bohemian

Not everyone visits the board every day so you may have to wait a wee while. It's also peak holiday time so folks might be away. Be patient. :)

Hi Casalibre/Incazzatonero,

IMHO Nick is right: it is Caithness and likely a second quality weight.

He is also perfectly entitled to point out that you are one single person behind these two user IDs - Casalibre and Incazzatonero - as revealed on this board four years ago:

Murano & Italy Glass / Old Murano Vase - Any Idea of Maker?
« Last post by mrop on Yesterday at 02:43:52 PM »
This vase is about 8 1/2" tall and 7" wide. Flattened on 2 sides. It is clear with streaks of gold inclusions. There amoeba like blobs that are blue with random bubbles. The gold is either pronounced or not depending on the viewing angle. Round polished pontil. I believe it has some age. Any idea of maker? Thanks

Glass / Very old Dutch Style Decanter Unusual Enamel Mark to Base Date???
« Last post by LEGSY on Yesterday at 11:18:55 AM »
Picked up a lovely damaged decanter with a capital H. which is enameled to the base where the broken pontil scar is, The cutting is a lot better than many of this style i have owned in the past namely a bird sat on a nest of four eggs. My question is can this be dated or indeed known where it was made my personal opinion is it feels a lot earlier than others i have owned in the past the rigaree which goes underneath is flat from movement on the base.
Thanks
