Please help with unsigned art glass piece
« on: September 20, 2008, 10:03:36 PM »
About 4.5" tall, crackle decoration is an iridescent surface treatment. Ground and polished bottom. Unmarked.

Thanks!

Scratch free (?) polished base suggests not that old. The finish could be added cold too as it is on the wrong side for a marvered vase.

I'm with you on both thoughts, Frank... still a well executed  piece. Just wondering who is out there doing this sort of thing? :)

Wasn't there a mention of a Germany company who specialised in this type of post-production decoration, often on Czech glass, perhaps Pamela will remember.

The mystery continue - Eische has disavowed this piece... and I can't find a signature...  :ac1:

A.D. Copier for Leerdam?
« Reply #8 on: September 22, 2008, 10:55:43 PM »
Someone on the eBay board mentioned Leerdam as a possibility - they did do a treatment called "tin craquele" that looks exactly like this treatment. I have found some examples (not in this shape) that appear to have been designed by an A.D. Copier. Any Leerdam experts out there? Any chance that this is a Leerdam piece?

Thanks again...

Warren

Looks hot-applied and stretched to me.  Not much help, I know. :P
