    I could not believe the weight of this piece for it's size. It's a clear oval lead crystal bowl that's 8 " L x 5" W x 6 " H. Designed by James Hogan for Whitefriars Crystal in 1940 -46. It was in production till 1959. It came in two sizes 10" and 8". This is the 8" version produced from 1954-59. Weighing in at almost 4 lbs. and is very bottom heavy. There is a bit of sculpting at the base. Giving the whole bowl a kind of heart shaped look. The thick top rim has a bit of a collar and four crease marks. Two on each side. The bottom is unmarked and polished flat with 1 1/4" circular pontil. It has some clouding from hard water, but otherwise it's perfect. I'll have to try the vinegar treatment. A really substantial and heavy piece. -Mike-

    Antiques Expert Hamilton Bear:
    "This fabulous Whitefriars pattern 9250 lobed bowl vase is a design classic and fine example of the best of the glass blowers art. Designed at Whitefriars Crystal by James Hogan between 1940 and 1946. It remained in production until 1959. These pieces are becoming difficult to find and are understandably popular with interior designers and lovers of fine style. A real cool decorative arts gem that looks simply great on display."

    Marks: typical Whitefriars pontil mark to base.

      Thanks Jay...Even though it's a bit of a plain Jane I really bought it because it weighed so much I figured it had to be something of quality. I've seen the other colors ... amber, blue, and green but not many clear ones. Also seen it called a "molar" or "pillow" vase. Guess it kind of looks like a tooth as well as a
