Any thoughts on the maker of this piece of incalmo glass gratefully received - purchased recently from Germany - the buyer picked it up from a junk shop and knew nothing about it's background. This question is not a precurser for an Ebay listing, it's exactly what I collect, just would like to try and find out more from interest. http://tinypic.com/5n1wlthttp://tinypic.com/5n1wdhhttp://tinypic.com/5n1wrphttp://tinypic.com/5n1wu0http://tinypic.com/5n1wy1http://tinypic.com/5n1x04
I'm fairly certain this is a trial piece, there are a number of stray bubbles in the clear glass, and the join between the two pieces of glass is quite dirty (see pic).
The slight champagne colour tinge you can see in a couple of the pictures is genuine, not a reflection.
Looking at the patterns of the bubbles that appears that they were made in a four part mould.
The base has a very thin wear ring around the outside (maybe 5mm wide). Then there's a band of say 10 cm with no wear, before the ground out pontil in the middle.
Absolutely no signatures, acid stamps etc. on the base.
My guess would be somewhere in Scandinavia, but that's just based on the look of the bubbles, but to honest, no clue.
