Does anyone know who made this flacon? It looks like a Viard piece to me....

Many thanks,

Roberta, you missed out one of common colours for aventurine - gold.

And also note that many Americans refer to it as "adventurine".

That's a good example of the design.

But you now need one with the large central complex cane which also has a "py" signature in the centre. :)

 The base is polished and slightly concave with an irregular shape.

The reason I asked about the base contour is because I have never seen an old chinese with a polished base although I understand there are a few modern ones that do.

Okay, apparantly Aventurine is a variety of Quartz characterized by bright inclusions of Mica or other minerals that give a shimmering or glistening effect to the stone, most commonly green, though also occurring in blue, red to reddish-brown, dusty purple, orange or peach, yellow, and silver gray.

Now I have learnt something new  :D
Now I just need  Lustrousstone to give me a lesson in Uranium  ;)

They used, rarely, other colours of aventurine. Red, Blue, Green and a Bronzy colour that is hard too see.

Plate 34 in Ysart Glass used red.
