I am trying to focus on the "Shapes" of umbrella pieces and there are three basic Challenges:

1. The shape is often the same but using a different tool to stretch the protrusions
2. They seemed to use interchangeable foot and top combinations
3 The shape could be slightly different based on the artistry and individual glass artistry of the worker

I had so many 8-sided shapes that you should look for a few more posts to come...

1. low and high footed bowl with elbow protrusions. The decors are tango bicolor and line and confetti

2. Two tiazzas in curved protrusions. The decors are line and confetti

3. Bowl and footed bowl curved protrusions (all of 2 & 3 are essentially the same top with a different foot0. Decors are tango with confetti

4. An interesting footed bowl (separate base) with curved- nearly straight protrusions. You can see two more of these in the last post- one with a base and one without. Decor is confetti with confetti
