This is a fabulous and large piece of Ditchfield Studio Glass.
It was made by the glass maestro John Ditchfield (b. 1952) and probably dates to the late 1980s.
Engraved unique edition number No. 5193 - with original Glasform sticker.
It has an engraved signature: J. Ditchfield and engraved with the word Glasform and the issue number.
It is a lovely undulating double gourd shape. It is made from a dark ink blue / black toned glass - with the exterior decorated with Tiffany-style iridescent luster sheens and peacock colours. All around are big teardrop-shaped areas of shiny gold and purple luster abstract forms. The colours are just so special on this piece - have taken lots of photographs for your inspection.
I have three of these vintage Ditchfield special collection pieces on sale in my shop - they are quite unique in the making - and this is reflected in my asking price. They have come from my own collection - and I have personally owned them for many years now.
