Gareth,

Thank you for all of the info you gave me. So he was English, and not Swedish!!  As you can see earlier in the thread there was a reference to him with the "other" spelling.  I grew up with the piece of glass, and would probably never sell it, but will pass it down to my daughter who also loves it.

I am curious as to the size of the 194 as opposed to my 193. The other pieces you posted images of are quite nice.....  I will have to keep an eye out for them.

I would be most interested in knowing about your book when it appears, it would be a great item to have with the vase..... 

When he went back to England, did he produce glass there?  If so, what firms did he work for, or with...  What styles of glass did he produce most?

Craig
I have been told that glass is my mistress......

Craig,

GH 194 is about 8.5 inches tall.

If you drop me an e'mail I can send you some more detailed pictures (my e'mail is in my profile), and I'll let you know if I see one for sale.

He didn't design glass when he came back, as far as I can gather he only designed glass for Afors and Kosta.

He had a couple of specialities:

Engraved glass (see below)

Bubbles (see next post)


but he also did played with lots of other styles - eg there's an opaque powder blue battuto flat long necked vase that comes up occasionally - very nice.

bubbles in lots of different colours and styles

this only scratches the surface - he and Lindstrand did pretty much the same styles, including Colora (he was a contemporary at Kosta)

Gosh, I'm really sorry about my claim that the spelling is Ernst.. I'm so used to reading Swedish that it didn't occur to me that his name could actually be Ernest. Even though I knew he was English.. :-[  ::)

Thanks for all the info, Gareth and the images..like Craig, I'm feeling much better educated!
 with best pink-cheeked wishes,
Aine
