4 quid keith? come on.

I also think if you have no money and have made something anything for it is better than throwing it away, we come from a generation that chucks stuff out, my grandparents were skint and anything would have been reused no matter if it had a crack they would not have destoyed anything if it had any value.

There was a ysart perfume that was cracked to pieces recently on ebay not through damage, my best guess is and i'm not Scottish glass expert but they were using basic methods of making glass, ie a drafty shed?

Hi Chris,

Yes its an annealing crack, I have a few which like yours are cracked internally but don't reach the weights suface, sometimes they can occur quite some time after they were made otherwise they probably would have been destroyed straight away.

I do wonder if this was made by Salvador, we'll await Kevin's expert eye, he has more experience than most in this area.

Thanks nick, i don't see it as damage just as made, there are no marks on it at all to indicate a knock, if you look at the base the crack is not there in the pontil, probably a cooling crack,  if it is ysart i'm thrilled to bits. Thank you for replying i really appreciate it.

Hi
It appears to be a Ysart bros weight by the canes and roughly ground out pontil mark, but I've never seen one with a scene like this in person or in print/on line. Its a real shame about the damage, its quite possibly a one off.

Glass / Re: Function of tiny cranberry cup?
« Last post by SNJ on June 16, 2018, 04:13:12 PM »
The gap in the handle is wide enough gap to join thumb and fingertip with middle finger support under the lower handle terminal so I could use it as a drinking vessel. It wouldn't give a particularly generous portion though!

I don't know anything about this type of glass, but just wondered if you can actually put your finger through in order to use it as a cup.  If not, it might be a child's set, or a travelling sales rep's trade samples?
