Technique: Blowpipe pontilled, freeblown, everted and tooled lip, estimated 14 clockwise turns of glass threading on neck (but almost all are missing).
Description: Very odd larger piece. Thicker glass, multiple levels of internal staining. Relatively wide mouth makes me consider this a contender for a decanter of some sort – to regularly receive liquid that was poured out.
Condition: Almost total loss of glass stringing, areas of internal haze, a variety of sizes of internal bubbles. Full external gloss.
