Not the best, it's damaged.

Thank you Ruth
Yep thats the snowflake label alright. The fact that it's silver rather than gold is not important ...apart from that, what shows is exactly the same.
Could I use your pic on the site please ?  I will give acknowledgment of course.
I think it's important to include some older Chinese pieces to make us realise that the Chinese have been producing decorative glass for many years.
It's worth  noting here that some Chinese paperweights are now sought after. I belive these were made in the 1930's !!!
Terry has "found" some more modern / new pieces and taken photos to add but I'm now cosidering the best way to move forward with the site and think I shall do something a little more adventurous as I'm finding the limitations there irksome.
I don't that I'll be requesting hosting from the Chinese though. I don't fancy being dictated to on any level.
Having given it some thought, I do think a section for Taiwan would be a good idea. Terry bought a piece with a label just this week-end and with Anne's piece, that's two if she will kindly allow me to include it.
Anne I'd forgotten the name of that HTML editor you told me about. I wrote it down and thought yep thats easy to remember. The piece of paper has gone and so have my memory brain cells !!! eeeek !

I will, however, add my Chinese bowl to the pile...


Ah, so that's what that is. I've had one of these pottering around for a while and casually assumed it was Italian!  :D

And Sixtrees still seem to be up and running, making picture frames and glass desk accessories.

Peter, please feel free to use any of my pics you want for the Chinese site, I've a couple of Chinese paperweights in my gallery as well if you want pics of them? The Sixtrees label is in the Labels album on Yobunny gallery - I'll copy it over to GlassGallery with the next batch, so you can grab it from either if you want that. I'm not sure what else I have that is known Chinese - I'll have a rummage and let you know! :)

The html editor is NVU (pronounced newview!) - see the site here: http://www.nvu.com/

Oh yes, I just remembered, I have one of the Chinese Plum Blossom vases which I bought to compare with Mum's ones which uncle brought home from Murano in the 60's. That's in Y Gallery as well.

Peter,
You are welcome to use the bud vase picture/label for your site if you wish. You will find it listed under PBG on the identification/label section of my website.  I suspect it stands for Plum blossom glass (but not definitely confirmed yet).

Chuggy, Ruth, Anne & Bubbles
Thank you all for your offers

I have done aother page (page 5) http://www.geocities.com/muscadale/musc5.html
and already spotted something interesting .....

Opinions please as to whether it is sufficiently similar to warn the webmaster of this site

Peter, I'd say similar but different enough to be from a different maker. Perhaps contact the seller of the "Zweisel" one and suggest he looks at the Chinese one on Muscadale and then makes his own mind up about it.

You could perhaps preface the message by saying we are comparing known Chinese products with similar designs to see if we can find whose patterns are being copied (or something along those lines?) to help buyers of both to be sure of what they actually have, given the improvements in some Chinese production.

Peter, I've had a squint at the two vases and they do look mightily similar, but I've spotted some differences also...  


The Muscadale (Chinese) is a much lighter colour and looks more transparent if you know what I mean. (but could be light conditions)
It has a more pronounced hoop in the mid section above the larger wider hoop than the Zweisel.  It also has an indentation underneath this larger hoop before flaring out into a bell shape, unlike the Zweisel. (but this might be because of the angle of the photo?)
It has a clear glass base unlike the Zweisel.

Its a pity they both don't also mention height.
