This was blown-moulded. Each angle within the mould was beaded. This has resulted in rounded hollow sections at the junction of each face. This was badly "watermarked" with limescale and residue from the contents. It has been "tumbled" in cleaning agents and soft lead pellets for many weeks. This was undertaken by Basil Loveridge glass restoration.
