Blue ribbed lemonade / water set - Stuart?
« on: March 22, 2007, 03:32:45 PM »
Just picked up this lovely set in a single-colour sky blue.

http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/displayimage.php?pos=-5800

The feel and base wear tell me that it's quite old.

The jug has a circular ground-out punty a la Webb, Stuart, Whitefriars, etc.
The tumblers have a fire-polished, smoothed-flat punty, although they also have flat-ground top rims.

All items have internal horizontal ribbing.
Can't find this in any of my books.  Can anyone suggest a maker?

TIA,
Chris

If the tumblers have ground tops then I would  look at Italy, Poland or Czechslovkia not the UK. Good luck 8)

Thanks for the suggestion, Christine.  I didn't know that was an indicator.
I have another couple of water sets that also have ground rims (all 3 sets are very carefully and subtly done), so that's a direction to look in for those.

I got an email this morning suggesting that this blue set might be by Jacob Bang for Kastrup, based on a decanter and vase in Andy McConnell's Miller's 20th Century Glass, p144, a possibility that I had missed.

Does anyone have any thoughts on that?

Thanks,
Chris

The colour, design and description of the base don't leap out as JE Bang - or Kastrup in general. Any mould-blown glass from Kastrup with a ground and polished rim wouldn't have had and punty mark. The bases should be completely flat. And those that have fire-polished rims would just have a normal ground & polished pontil.

I would say that Czech or Italian would be a good place to start looking, though. Saying that, Ekenäs and Elme used to do ground rims - but I'm not really getting the Scandi vibe from the set. I might be wrong, of course.

Discovered today that these react strongly to UV, glowing an intense green.
