Earlier this morning I went to the garage, found some stuff to take to Vinnies and then found a few pieces that I had put away about ten years ago. This was in the bottom of a chest of glass. I had found it years ago at the Rozelle markets one Saturday morning. It was only a dollar or so if I remember correctly.
But I never really knew exactly what I had bought.
I am still none the wiser, so I am asking for your input.
It looks like a three sided candlestick, ......
..... but then maybe it is a vase?
Perhaps it is 'end of day' piece?
It has a ground foot and it has a pastille added over the pontil.
The iridescence is strong all over as I hope you can see in these photos.
The lip has some three tool marks.
Height: 21 cm or 8.2"
Width: 9.5 cm or 3.8" at the widest point
And it has a whopping crack across the bottom too. It doesn't extend up the piece it is part of the making I think. Totally imperfect!
