advise needed; Vaseline and Israeli Glass
« Reply #10 on: July 26, 2005, 07:32:21 AM »
What I was <trying> to say in the previous post is that the Israeli acid stainware from Ilanit is actually machine made in France or Italy, and only decorated in Israel. As far as design and production go, this is deceptive - and I cannnot say I am impressed by the fluor acidstain splotchblotch pattern either.

Of course there are other glass makers in Israel who actually make their own. The best known is Andreas Meyer whose Nahariya glass has been going for more than 25 years. He specialises in fused, bent and gilded glass - so no blowing involved.

One well known name in Israeli glass is the painter Reuven Rubin who produced glass ca. 1918-1940; he pioneered lightweight soda glass and acid decoration - but his products are quite delicate and not to be compared to modern day factory glass.  Other names to look out for are Ariel Bar-Tal and Rika Eliahu.

And then there is an industry of lampworked tourist glass, with a sgrafo finish to look like dug up.

Hello,
Oh, My Gosh!!!  What a feeling to have all this attention from so many esteemed and respected leaders of this newfound passion of mine!  My husband is laughing at me now, because I am very flustered, at figuring out what to say in response to you.
The "splochblotch" pitcher has a paper label that reads Israili Originals, hand painted, Nouveau Art Glass, by Reuven.  I write this because of the post by Ivo, naming Reuven as a name, if I understand correctly, to be respected as quality.  I kinda like the colors, but the whole thing looks oily or something to me.  (I can't imagine what it would look like with the set of glasses.)  Of course,  I could learn to love it, if it happened to be high-dollar!  This picture is of the label, please excuse the bug, I had to take it outside to get it to focus.  If there is anything else I need to know, please don't hesitate to tell me, I anxiously await.

Thank you so much for the leads and links, all of you.  You make me feel very welcome, which is really a strange feeling for this old country gal, to be welcomed into such an illustrious group!   I better get to work on this....I fully intend to earn your respect in this area!!
