Just bragging - what I bought today!
« on: November 02, 2007, 09:40:19 PM »
Sorry - just had to show this one off -

Fenton, Grape & Cable carnival glass plate with three spatula feet in marigold.  With a rather nice irridescence. ;D.

I started with Carnival glass, then other C20 irridescent, then Whitefriars ducks, then Dartington FT Daisies etc, then Whitefriars Tricorns...when will it end?

LOL never, there is always something else that "catches your eye". I started off glass collecting after getting interested in Whitefriars and before you know it, I now have iittala, Riihimaki, Holmegaard, Orrefors, Mdina, Murano, Bohemia, Dartington, Wedgwood and 1 piece of Liskeard.....and my A D Copiers Leerdam dish, which if it hadn't been for the fountain of knowledge here would have gone to the charity shop !!

I'm rather scared of buying Carnival glass because I just know so little about it - it's such a big complicated area and it's seriously out of my comfort zone.  I did buy one bowl recently that Glen kindly IDd for me so I know I'd look at those two if I saw them Tim.

This should please you then Tim - old listing so no pictures available, and green is usually more expensive than amethyst/purple...

Thank you very much!

Cathy and Lynne - Yes, very pleased with those.  The Grape & Cable was part of a mixed lot at our local auction (estimate £10-15 for four pieces!) and the Four Flowers came from the boot fair at boot fair price ;D.  They are both in perfect condition as well 8).

Pip - that's exactly how I feel about a lot of other glass.... like the things I've listed for ID over the weekend!

Emmi - don't be daft, you must know that it is impossible not to go out (if you physically can, that is) and look for glass.  You just never know when you're going to stumble on something really nice - like a Sky Blue knobbly ;D.

Nice pieces Tim. I have a penchant for the Four Flowers Variant. It is an enigma...and I love a mystery!

Just a brief note to clarify a point that is often misunderstood. The eBay auction that Lynne mentioned states it is for a Dugan Four Flowers Variant bowl. That's a contradiction in terms. Dugan made the Four Flowers pattern. It was copied by the Swedes and Finns, who made a pattern that is identical, but usually different in colour to that produced by Dugan. The Scandinavian/Nordic examples are very seldom seen.

Then there is the Four Flowers Variant - which is what Tim has. The maker is not confirmed, but I suspect it was made in Europe (possible England). I do not have proof absolute. I've spent considerable time researching this pattern, and you can read a few bits below.
