Many familiar names were represented in a concentrated 145-lot specialist sale of British and Continental glass at McTear’s (24% buyer’s premium), but the winner by a distance was Lalique’s Formose green glass vase.

First designed in 1924, the footed ovoid vase moulded in relief with goldfish was produced in various shades and had lasting popularity.
The 6½in (17cm) tall example offered at Glasgow on January 30 was etched R.Lalique, France, and numbered 934 to the base, which would indicate an inter-war or immediately post-war date.
Against a £1000-2000 estimate it sold to a bidder from the south of England at £5500.
