Hi Folks, thanks for your help with my previous IDs. This is more of a curiosity item! In a £4 auction box containing signed Orrefors & Holmegaard vases was a quantity of Ruby tableware - goblets, plates, dessert dishes. I'd love to know their origins as, never really having taken much interst in English pressed glass, I've never seen Ruby!
It has a kind of Bohemian feel to it, & if anyone recognises it I'd be fascinated to know - if you need better pix just ask. Talking of Bohemian!!!!
I bought this pair of vases in the style of Michael Powolny
at auction last week. From my potted rference material I've ascertained that Loetz continud to use Powolny's designs & style well after he'd moved onto other things. They're genuinely old & perfect bar 0.5mm or less - a flake really - missing from the end of one of the trails. They're extensively & naturally worn to the bases & stand 7.5 inches tall. The trails & piping are actually a deep blue rather than black. Is there any way of knowing whether they are Loetz, or indeed Powolny! I'm also slightly curious about value, though I doubt I'll sell them - I've been waiting for these to pop up for some time, I adore them!
My thanks in advance for any time/effort which goes into helping me & I hope I can return the knowledge sometime. Kind regards all, Lyn
