Another option could be ‘tube end caps’ that come in different diameters but you would have to cut a hole in the end. Cheap on eBay.

St John was a small company licensed to make some Maximals and Minimals, but they didn't adhere to the conditions of the license and things went a bit pear-shaped.
Some of the things they made were not of high enough quality and they changed designs in a manner Michael Harris wasn't overly happy with.

I resorted to a slim flat ring of blu-tack between the rim of the bottle and the base pad of the stopper to hold it in place. All my plastic bits were perished.

Hi Penny, if you google ‘bottle stopper sleeves’, it comes up with a few examples. You may be able to get them from hobbyist wood turning suppliers as I believe people make decorative wooden stopper tops but buy the bit that goes into the bottle. Alibaba also has them but you might need to buy thousands!

Glass / Genie Bottle Stoppers
« Last post by Penelope12 on Today at 08:12:50 AM »
I wonder if anyone can help me to locate some replacement plastic seals for my genie bottles. Most of them have perished and need replacing, but I can’t seem to locate any anywhere. It would help if I just knew what they were called; I have tried Googling everything that I can think of, but so far have drawn a blank.  ???

Thanks Penny

Thanks Sue.
Can you give me some more info on St John? Dr Google is of no help.
Kind regards,

Glass / Here's a strange one
« Last post by AndreaA1 on Today at 02:15:07 AM »
I recently picked up this vase from a local thrift store because it intrigued me. A quick internet search located another one just like it, which sold for a pretty penny when attributed to Blenko. https://www.1stdibs.com/furniture/dining-entertaining/glass/rare-blenko-gourd-tangerine-orange-pebbled-textured-glass-vessel-vase/id-f_1621052/

I am pretty certain it is not Blenko (although if I'm wrong it could be tangerine colour). The interesting part is the texture, which looks and feels like orange peel. It is lightly cased in clear glass over the dark orange, and has a rough pontile at the bottom.

It is quite large, measuring 12" w x 8"h with a 4" opening (30cm x 20cm x 10cm)

Does anyone have any suggestions? I have no idea where to even start!

Thank you for your very good point, Lustrousstone. As it happens I have answered my own question. The vase is new and chinese in origin, being sold by high end decor stores. I'm relieved to have the puzzle solved!
