thanks Nigel and very interesting :)

sorry to digress backward but..............   coming back to the issue of cut glass flower frogs/supports, I've just noticed some relevant information in the Miller's/McConnell volume '20th Century Glass'.
Page 63 shows details from a page from a Harrods (London) brochure advertising 'Finest English Cut Crystal' which the book caption indicates was all Stuart production in the 1920's, and the ad includes a flower support described as 'The Magic Flower Holder' - similar in fact to the example I posted some way back in this thread.
Appears to have been offered in seven different sizes, and if you look carefully at the vases on the Harrods page you can just about make out that the majority have been illustrated with a support in situ.

So obviously a not uncommon add-on in the 1920's but perhaps the majority have become lost along the way.

Without sticking my neck out too much, and there's plenty on here that know much more than I do.
I just know it's 'right' if you understand what I mean John.
Funnily enough I have just used that photo on another board :) to compare.

think I'd go with that having now looked more closely at the decoration.      It looks to be in very good condition.

quite right - they aren't bubbles  -  I didn't blow the picture up sufficiently, and I doubt then that it's the age I had in mind.     Doesn't look to sparkle as much as I thought mica would.

Are those big lumps of mica or is it a small vase?
