Drinking glasses question...
« on: August 11, 2005, 01:28:52 PM »
Can anyone suggest who may have made these glasses please? http://www.glaskilian.de/stemware/st327.html

I have six of them which my mother bought me in the mid-1990's and have often wondered who made them. There is no mark on them to identify the maker.

Well, it's just a thought, but recent / contemporary Walther Glas can be found with hand painting on.

Hi Glen

I've seen quite a lot of modern Walther but none that exhibit free handpainting like that on Annes glasses.
 The multi-coloured ones, of which there are a number of on the link, I have always thought as different coloured glass.

Do you have a link to show Walther with this type of hand painting.

I believe there was a range in the 30's but restricted I think to just one or two specific styles, and not at comparable to this more delicate style....some of the 30's was almost Moorcroft looking.



Regards


Gareth

No Gareth, I don't have any info to back my suggestion up. It was really just that I wanted to help Anne with this question, so I thought I'd throw something into the arena which I had a vague "feeling" about in the hope that it might generate some more ideas.

I quite accept that I am not correct in my half hearted suggestion - and thanks for commenting  :shock:

Glen and Gareth, thanks for the thoughts, much appreciated. :)

The glasses are comparatively recent - glaskilian shows them as c.1990 but mine were bought new around 1996-8 - I can't just remember exactly when. I know they weren't expensive at the time (about £1 each from etcetera from  memory!) so seeing them at 150 euros for 6 now just staggered me!  I have a niggle that they are eastern European perhaps. The design is engraved in the glass and then painted over the engraving. The bowls are optic ribbed and the stems are long and slender - very elegant - they scare my ham-fisted teenage son who won't go near them in case he breaks them!  They really are nice and look a lot more than £1's worth each. I'd love to know where they hail from though.

Hi Anne,

They look very similar to some I have seen which were designed by Eva Enguland and produced by Orrefors between 1983-84, and are from the Maja tableware service ( Glass Source Book by Jo Marshall pg 183), but the flowers droop down.


Just a thought :wink:

Here is a link from the replacement site to show what I mean.

Thanks Barbara - I had a look but I'm not sure if they're similar as mine are engraved beneath the painted parts. Are the Orrefors ones engraved do you know?

The Orrefors ones are lovely though. :)

Hi Anne,

It doesn't say that they are engraved anywhere, but I just thought they look similar to yours. I suppose all Orrefors is signed somewhere? But they may be Scandanavian in origin?

( Cluctching at straws here :lol: )

Thanks again Barbara, I'm hanging onto that straw with you I think! :)  There are definitely no marks on mine - I went and had a look after my last post.  They're probably some obscure glassworks somewhere! Maybe I'll never know where they came from.  :roll:

does not have to be a glassworks - it could be a refinery (decorator) using factory blanks...
