This is an earlier piece of hand crafted glass which was designed by Michael Harris.
It is part of his "Tortoiseshell" range for Isle of Wight Studio Glass.
It is impressed with the "flame" pontil mark to the base.
This lovely large globular vase dates to the early 1970s.
It has a spiral running all around the vase, and features bands of sandy brown and darker brown glass.
This is a particularly large example - and it looks like a large bubble.
It is about 8 inches in diameter, and with a height of about 7 1/2 inches.
In great condition with no chips, cracks or bruises.
It is now getting much harder to find these early Isle of Wight pieces - and this is reflected in my asking price which I hope is a fair one for this fine piece of vintage studio glass.
I also have another of similar size and shape - but it is slightly darker in tone.
