Here's another one for the pink glass aficianados out there - a pink & black Tango glass basket, which arrived yesterday.
When I saw this, I jumped - it was both a reasonable price, & a rarely seen colour.
I know, there's divided opinions out there in CW land regarding baskets - but who could resist this one, I ask you.
My main issue with buying baskets online is the anxiety I suffer from in hoping that it's been packed securely. This one is also not too big or wide, so won't hog cabinet space, either. And did I mention that it's pink? PINK Tango glass!
The basket is made from a single layer of slightly translucent pink glass, & measures around 21.5 cm tall including the black applied handle. It is 12 cm across the top rim, which is trimmed in black, & 9 cm across the base, which has a snapped pontil mark.
Marked Made in Czechoslovakia - hard to see in the photo, but it's there. This was purchased from the USA, hence the mark. Marked glass of this type is rarely found in Australia. The marking appears to be etched, & is in a rather fine, upright font.
