Hello,

Thanks for the email Barbara. Just back from Mum's again - combined hospital visit and Mum's day, so a good thing that you did contact me.

As promised I am putting in something about the attributed 'Nazeing' piece.

Sadly, there is no proof at all that the combed vase is Nazeing. The combing does not conform with anything that is known and recorded as being by Nazeing, nor Whitefriars/Powell as had been the fond attribution prior to Nazeing being a possible contender! The fully polished concave pontil is not a Nazeing characteristic, nor is the transparent coloured casing that is also a characteristic of these pieces - well certainly not in the various colours that have turned up over the years.

The Anna Fogelberg piece is another thing altogether. As I recall she designed for Thomas Webb prior to a problem with her marriage to Sven. He stayed at the factory and she left with their two children, returning to Sweden.

Whilst these pieces are not common, they do turn up from time to time. They do not always have the Rembrantdt Guild mark, although the one in the British Glass Between the Wars Exhibition did (catalogue number 277).

The availability of the whole raft of cut and engraved British glass from the late 1920's through to the 1970's is surprisingly small, many examples having only been recorded once in modern times - and yet there are others that one must assume were commercially successful at the time, that turn up with great regularity. This piece falls between the two in that a number of examples are known.

I will not discuss the value of the vase other than to agree with the points made by Bernard and to say that I am constantly surprised by the diversity in prices achieved by this type of British glass; currently a real conunndrum because of this lack of consistancy.

Many people who sell at auction are taken by surprise by the auctioneers commission, which of course varies according to who you use. Don't forget you have to add insurance (mandatory, and based on the selling price) and photographic costs, plus VAT on the whole. Occasionally, there is also a lotting fee! What sellers should also take into account is that auctioneers then charge the buyer, who has to take account of this fact when bidding. Consequently the 25% commission quoted by John is easily found. In fact more often than not when you take into account both sets of commissions the fees achieved by the auctioneers can top 35%!

I hope some of this helps, Nigel
