It is big, bright and cheerful, you can use it happily without worrying too much about it. ;D
I do like the second V&A one you say it would make a lovely spirit bottle  :D

Interesting too that the Glasshouse was set up just at the time Michael Harris left for Malta ...obviously MH thought to replicate it all in a warmer climate !!

Fairly contemporary Chinese.  :)
Recently, work from China is becoming better finished off, but this sort of base finish, in conjunction with the bright colours and large size, is absolutely typical of the work preceeding the improvements.
Note the random lozenges on the second piece.  ;D
(which should clearly contain some delicious artisan gin  ;D )
Remember the random lozenges on the one-off piece made by Michael Harris in '64 at rogaska sklo?
Recall the random lozenges on the work by Iestyn Davies...

Not forgetting of course, that originally, lozenges were not random and not neccessarily cut through layers of colours.
A new use of old techniques.
 ;D I know exactly what you mean. It's just stunning to think of the origins and what has come from that, since.
Thanks Sue ! I saw it in a small junk shop and thought 'oooohh that looks interesting !' and it was !! Very pleased to hear you collect them too  ;) It was good to find out she was there at almost the start of the Glasshouse and was taught by the great man himself !
Quite a piece of history there, Mike. And quite a pretty one too.
I'm not fond of the colour mix, but I am droolling just a bit, because of what it is. I didn't set out to collect studio glass goblets, but it sort of happened along the way. ;D
