Mfc or cac, slag or swirl?


Recommended Posts

Appears to be a 5/8" purple hand gathered slag. US manufacture pretty much limited to your pick: MFC, Akro, Peltier or CAC as, all made them and to say who is not practical because, mixed in a bucket, stick a punty rod in molten glass, twirl to gather the glass on rod and you're usually going to have the H-G form on all.  Any striped pattern like this on a H-G slag is simply random because, it also predates automated gob feeder systems with multiple glass tanks, including nozzles and plungers designed to do it. 

Exceptions to the typical H-G pattern are when ground or melted pontal is apparent because those precede MFC's roller patent. .
