Looking for help with an ID on this piece - I'm thinking one of two things - Stevens & Williams or Harrach. Has anyone seen this before?

Thanks,

Warren

It is actually uranium glass? It is really cased? I always think of casing as being a thick layer over part or whole. I have two items with this opalescent interior threading. The threads are between two layers of the body glass, but I don't think that qualifies as casing. I think you might need to think broader than S&W or Harrach. Can we see a few close ups please, including the top rim

Christine,

It is uranium, and it appears to be a layer of pink underneath - the threads in between, and uranium on the outside. I will take some more pics tomorrow. Thanks - I will keep an open mind. :)

Cased means at least two layers, the first gather being cased by the second, they can be different or the same colours. Decoration in between the layers is quite common. Not to be confused with flashed where a decoration layer is applied to part or all of the outside during blowing.

I stand corrected on cased, thanks Frank

Hmm, much like the construction of mine except mine are white (opalescent) in amber with uranium trimmings (feet on one strange thingy and a handle on a teeny jug). I'm  :mrgreen:  Somewhere (Gulliver?, on here?) I read that these all-in-one feet were a Bohemian characteristic

That was certainly something implied by Cyril Manley, who thought the "English style" was with the feet worked in a sort of "loop" around the base of the item but where the base was covered entirely and then worked at the edges, it indicated a "Continental style".

So would this lean back to Harrach, then... or possibly Franz Welz?
