Glass Sheep and Bunny ID = Scottish Borders Art Glass
« on: December 16, 2008, 04:33:23 PM »
Found in a charity shop, only label is one saying £8.90..

There's one photo of the sheep/bunny, and  a different angle on the sheep.

Also one image of another animal (that seems to have a flaw through it's nose)


Any ideas? Pointers?

Thanks all.

The sheep and bunny are Tweedsmuir Glass I think.

Possible, I need more marked labelled images of his work for SG link. I am trying to contact him, but he no longer making glass unfortunately.

I saw a labelled sheep the other day exactly the same as this one, but without the irridised surface, so I'm 99% sure these are Tweedsmuir.

The last animal looks very much like one I had which I was told was a polar bear by Wedgewood.  I haven't seen a picture or catalogue of one to verify it.

Hi stevetheb,

Sometimes it can take a long time, but hopefully this is still helpful.  I collect Tweedsmuir glass in abundance, so know these are not their work....I am 100% certain they are Scottish Borders Art Glass.

The Polar bear is definately not Wedgwood (no 'e' in the middle of Wedgwood BTW).

Hope this helps  even though it is a couple of years ago!!

Peter Holmes told me that Chris Dodd's was one of the best glassmakers they had at Selkirk. Now he is believed to be a gardener somewhere in England.

Hopefully he pops up here one day - to discover that his Tweedsmuir work is now getting a lot of attention. I have one of his cats sitting next to my screen.

I have so many pieces of his work Frank,  both for Selkirk and for Tweedsmuir.  There is a stoat on eBay listed as Murano at the moment, and I have told the seller it is Tweedsmuir, but she won't change it!!

1% is OK Martyn. :)
