Spotted this a while back, but the shop was closed. Finally made it mine - yes, another basket, but as I'm not planning on moving house I'm permitting myself such an indulgence...
It's fanciful, loud, & busy...if fun was made of glass, I think this it what it would look like.
Made from two layers of cased glass - deep tangerine over yellow, it has an unusual folded over top rim studded with large hobnail bumps, & finished with a yellow & clear crested single crimp. There is a clear applied twisted thorn handle. Measures around 23 cm tall at the top of the handle, 20 cm wide across, & 7.5 cm across the base, which has a rough, snapped pontil mark.
I believe that it was made by Welz.
