Apsley Pellatt - what is this piece of glass shown
« on: September 25, 2016, 10:39:02 AM »
Has anyone identified the piece of glass shown in my book (book dated 1849 - my copy reprinted 1968 by The Ceramic Book Company) on page 140 - Plate 6 Fig.2?
He says 'Specimen of modern French Mille-Fiori Glass, - formerly made by the ancients and ...'
Thanks

Hi m.  I recall looking at this when it was first mentioned on GMB in ?2013.  I don't believe it is French: the canes may be broadly similar to some French ones, but do not match.  However, some of the canes are very like those shown by Peter von Brackel in 'Classic Paperweights from Silesia/Bohemia' pp 31 to 41 , attributed to an unknown glassworks, possibly Dr W E Fuss in  Magdeburg, in the late 1830s - early 1840s.  So I think it is a fragment of a Silesian item.

ah, - the picture cane - I was wondering if that was a Harrach feather plume (sometimes referred to as propellor) mark?
That is their mark.

See here for a good photo of the Harrach feather plume mark - there are a few on there, scroll down to a good clear one in black on the base of a vase.

I've just been looking at this again.
Some of the canes have numbers on them 1-6 it looks like?
And I think that propellor is the Harrach mark.

I wonder if it was made at Neuwelt.
