Painted Vases
« on: August 31, 2007, 10:02:05 PM »
I'm looking for an estimate to the age of 2 vases. They can be viewed at these links.

The lip is applied and the bottom has pontil marks. Bubbles in glass. 5ΒΌ" tall.
Thanks for any help.
Thanks Deltab and  Max.
Revised question.

Hi Delta Man,

I think that the first vase on this page is similar to that of yours. There is a purchase price with it also. http://www.parisantiquemall.com/glassantique_collectible.htm
Hope this helps.

Delta Man, while we love seeing new glass  :D this board is really for discussion and a resource for glass information, and not for giving values on particular pieces.  A lot of people feel that it's hard to give an accurate value when there are so many variables that can make a difference to what something is 'worth'.

On the other hand, Della may be able to help.  ;)

Della, no, no, you're fine.  Thanks for helping here.  :-*

I just didn't want Delta Man to feel bad if no-one answered his query.  It's up to individuals if they want to help or give an estimate.   :)

I would never give an estimate, personally. A piece is worth what it is worth, only because of what people are willing to pay.
It really wasn't difficult to find a piece to compare it to. It took seconds, and I didn't even know what kind of glass it was.  :angel:

Thanks for your help. I did not intend to cause any problems. I did a search for Goofus Glass, and found similer glass.
http://www.glass.co.nz/goofus.htm
I went back and rephrased my inquiry.
The link from Deltab is similer to mine only differant flowers. I think mine are Poppies.
Thanks.
