Awesome vase that I just broke

Hi

Really interesting cylinder vase with clear heavy base, rounded rim and unusually it has a ground out pontil also. Approx 20 tall with silver air bubble effect.

Just spent and hour cleaning the inside and rinsed it out and ping it fractured. Man that's annoying and only the second time I've done it. Oddly the glass was only mildly warm and the water wasn't cold so there must have been some keen stress in the glass and the tiniest contraction just took it along that line. Going to have to throw it away as I can't deal with looking at it now knowing what I have done to the little beauty.

A 'Rustic' series vase by Ronald Stennett-Willson for King's Lynn Glass, late 1960s.
