Earlier this morning I went to the garage, found some stuff to take to Vinnies and then found a few pieces that I had put away about ten years ago. This was in the bottom of a chest of glass. I had found it years ago at the Rozelle markets one Saturday morning. It was only a dollar or so if I remember correctly.
But I never really knew exactly what I had bought.
I am still none the wiser, so I am asking for your input.
It looks like a three sided candlestick, ......
..... but then maybe it is a vase?
Perhaps it is 'end of day' piece?
It has a ground foot and it has a pastille added over the pontil.
The iridescence is strong all over as I hope you can see in these photos.
The lip has some three tool marks.
Height: 21 cm or 8.2"
Width: 9.5 cm or 3.8" at the widest point
And it has a whopping crack across the bottom too. It doesn't extend up the piece it is part of the making I think. Totally imperfect!
Many thanks to BREWSTER for the solve on this one ......
"Hi Kevin. That is unmistakeably the work of the noted West Australian glass artist Gene Polt (now deceased)."
Thought I'd add some more pix to show the nature of the glass on this vase whatever candlestick.
