A few more pieces of glass needing IDs
« on: March 24, 2007, 12:36:31 PM »
Can anyone help with the following completely unrelated pieces?

Purple jug - I'm guessing Polish, but can anyone confirm?

Blue mallet shaped trailed vase. Would this be called pulegoso, or only if Italian?
Frothy bubbles, a lot of frit and a rough but not sharp pontil.

Three rather nice etched stems. Assume either American elegant, or modern?

I think the second, blue one, is recycled glass Cathy, it seems to have all characteristics.  The glasses are pretty fab, I really like the one engraved with a bird...engraved glass is my thing!  :D

I am not a man

No. 2, Mexican? Could well be, with all that frit!

I vote Egyptian for the blue one - not Mexico

I don't believe that either of your etched glasses are American.

The center one may be Orrefors Ingrid blank but I can't be sure because of your picture.

Tips for photographing stems for an id.  You need a image of:

1) Overall glass
2) Close-up of the stem
3) Close-up of where the stem intersects the base
4) If there is a wafer or other unusual junction, then an image where the bowl meets the stem
5) Close-up of any etch or engraving.

Hi Connie,

Thanks very much for looking. It certainly does resemble the Orrefors Ingrid pattern. I'll come back with some better photos soon.

Can I ask, what might an unusual junction be, and what does that indicate?

By the way, I hope your back is improving now!

Hi Cathy -

I just reread my post and realized it sounded rude which I didn't mean for it to be.  I was in a rush to take my daughter to a play yesterday.

My tips for photographs for stem identification were meant to be general and not specifically for you  :)

I actually prefer to have a good photo of where the stem meets the bowl for all stemware.  For some patterns it doesn't matter but in others it is important. For instance the bowl can be set directly on the stem, or there can be a wafer, or the stem can form a flower with varying number of petals, etc.

My back is getting better, Cathy.  Thank you for asking.  :)
