Czech press moulded glass old and new???

<< < (2/3) > >>

Sklounion:
Sorry?

Is this seller using your image  or an image of your vase,and claiming barolac?

I did say in my original postings "Reminiscent of Barolac".  The arena of Czech/Slovak glass is extremely fraught, who did what, when/ who stole moulds allegedly by British companies, why have they appeared/not appeared, is a minefield. Barolac, I used, as a term, not as an absolute id,
beacuse there  are so many continuing areas, of contention.

Marcus

I think the vase is Baralac - I'll scan the page from a catalogue later today and post it up. Have to get off to work now!

No, the seller just has a vase the same as mine, I probably didn't phrase my previous post very well.  :)

Jo, I think Barolac did one similar to this, but with a wider top?  I expect mine is just a vintage copy of it (has to be vintage, from a charity shop I would think).  If you could scan a pic in, that would be really great, thank you.   :D   xx

Jo in Australia:
Here's the page from a 'Weil' New York catalogue for 'Barolac Sculpture Glass'. As you can see from the scan made by Bohemia Glass - so not the earlier Barolac.

The vase came in the turned in and turned out type of top because I have the turned out one in opalescent glass.

Off to dinner now to celebrate my oldest daughters' 21st birthday now... the party's next Saturday.  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :shock:

Jo  :D

Heyyy Jo!  Thanks so much for that, it was really, really kind of you to take the time scanning it in for me.  xxxx {{{Jo}}}

I have Marcus to thank really, as I'd seen this vase in a charity shop and hadn't bought it.  I thought it might be of use to him and dashed down to the shop and popped a note through their door on Sunday for them to keep it for me.  Luckily it was still there when I went in to pick it up yesterday.  :D

Now...if I can just work out how to repair little shiny spots in the satin finish it should be a presentable vase! :)
