A flint (clear) Whitefriars small nailhead vase. Condition: There is a 1” crack in the top below the rim in one corner – see photos. It displays well on one side and the crack seems stable. No chips to the rim and otherwise a good clean example.

The ship makes its path through the ocean waves.
Crafting Method: Bright orange coloured glass is pushed up into the clear glass to form the ships sails. A second layer of clear glass is taken from the furnace and four colour bubbles blown up with compressed air, the blue swirled base is then dropped on underneath the orange and black bubbles and melted in. Once cool the chisel facet is cut and polished, reflecting the design inside. Brand new complete with certificate of authenticity.
