    All three are the same moulded shape but the added rigaree varies either in shape or colour. The new one has white stripes between two layers of amber glass and green rigaree. The pink one is white lines sandwiched between between pink glass. The rigaree is different in shape from the new one. The third one, also new, is in a dark spatter with clear rigaree in the same style/shape as the green rigaree. These would have been night lights in the days when oil lamps were in use for lighting.

      This form is also seen in the Harlequin Honeycomb decor also. It has clear rigaree and feet like the amber and green example. Very nice assortment of these you have accumulated.

      I love new rigaree.They are,I'd say,playful as if they were dancing with the floating flame.Have you ever tried to use the life lights?
    3. welzebub, 1 year ago
      Here are the 6 decors I have a record of on this shape now.

      Welzebub, thanks, I've two more to come but ran out of light.....more for your grid.
      The pink one, top middle on your grid, is SPECIAL!
    5. welzebub, 1 year ago
      I agree with you. That one is very nice!! I think it may be the only example of that decor I recall seeing. The first one of these I ever saw was the Honeycomb one about 10 years ago.
    6. sklo42 sklo42, 1 year ago
      Just so, Yvonne, I see that too. I doubt that you could find a supplier for a floating wick these days. But I think they'd look good, especially if the flame flickered.

      welzebub, and 10 years ago it was still being called a vase. It's astonishing that the information was there, that it included a diagram of an unmistakable shape (the tri-lobed heart) and that it was shared on the internet on a glass group.

      Love these!

      When you get the others, please add a full group shot.

      I'm going to try, scott, though I'm still getting the hang of new equipment. However it does have a panoramic function, so well see :).

      Very sassy rigaree on the new one. Looking forward to seeing the whole gathering!
    11. sklo42 sklo42, 1 year ago
      Thank you, Wow22, I hope the 'gathering' doesn't disappoint!

      Looking forward to the group shot, & loving the quirky rigaree on the newest addition!
    13. sklo42 sklo42, 1 year ago
      IronLace.....For static glass the rigaree looks a tad flirtatious, methinks!
    14. IronLace IronLace, 1 year ago
      Pert, saucy, & full of character!
