    I had these collars made for these slightly average iridescent vases. The silversmith had free reign for the larger but was given a J Hummel, Vienna, pattern for the second (to hide a chipped rim) and carried it off very well.

    Possibly my maddest moment to date in glass collecting - I am sure more will follow. It certainly "lifts" the vases. Cesar says they could be napkin rings if I get bored of them.

    The maker is Julian Stephens of Brighton, hallmark "q" for 2015.

    The 4th photograph is of a Hummel mount ca. 1902 from "Jugendstil Art Nouveau: floral and functional forms" by Siegfried Wichmann, Boston, 1984.
