Hello,

The blue color we are discussing here has become my second favorite color.  My heart still belongs the red glass.  Has anyone ventured a guess as to the (approx.) age or date of the pitcher?

Good point, Ivo.   I had not considered that angle.   I still think my point about capitalisation is worthwhile.

You will be amused to know that four of the last five pieces of Walsh art glass I have acquired have been labelled either Whitefriars or Powell, and one of those had a clear Walsh mark on the base.    The fifth was labelled Stephens & Williams (sic.), not a glassworks I have yet come across.

Have you noticed how almost all single colour uncased bubbly glass is now labelled Walsh Pompeian, with a variety of innovative spellings?

All Czech glass is Moser, All Italian glass is Venini, all Belgian glass is VSL, All lampworked glass is Bimini, All iridised glass is Loetz, All Champagne is bubbly but not all bubbly is Champagne  :D
I had not noticed the "Pompeian" fashion yet, just as we're getting a little wiser on the differences between bubbles & bubbles. I predict in a few years time Belgian glass will become highly collectible and we will all call the bubbly stuff "verre antique"  :D  :D  :D
