Personally i have seen this box in 3 different colours, how many more are they and which colour is rare !!!. I have seen a clear one, a green one, and this one has a hint of very pale blue to it.

It's a lady, and it's called a Pandora Biscuit Box. The figure is on all four sides and i believe it's a book she is holding. . . Pondering

You can add amber and uranium (unless you class that as green) to this Sowerby barrel

I'd like to see a uranium one under U.V. lights, I'll bet it's stunning.
If you've seen them in green, this very pale blue, and clear, I'd assume there'd also be an amber and 'sapphire' blue, and possibly a non-uranium 'emerald' green too.

There is possably a pink as this was a popular colour used by Sowerby
The clear is known as flint
The pattern is 2544

Which clear one's called flint, fuzzyedges, the one in keramark's photo or the uncoloured clear? I only ask because I'd have said that the one in the photo has a flinty hue.

Sowerby's never refer to clear or uncoloured always to flint in there catalogues
Photos are so deceiving Uranium is nearly always shown with a uv light in pictures whilst in reality they always look draber plus there are colour variations in the the colours dependant on the additives mix

Cheers fuzzyedges Excellent
So would the box above be called flint as well as one with less colour in the mix, or is it one of their 'intentional' colourways with its own name?

Brilliant, thank you. Excellent I'm fascinated by the art (alchemy?) of glass-making. Just the fact that glass is actually a super-cooled liquid I find amazing.

And that it can arrive ready-made in meteorites and from volcanoes.
