Pressed glass pieces
« on: October 22, 2005, 02:15:48 PM »
Any help identifying these would be greatly appreciated... :P

Left:  I think this is most probably Bagley but not certain.  I've never seen one complete with its inner section which appears to be handpainted. The seller had had this for years and in all that time had displayed it with the posy bowl facing downwards, not realising that flowers were meant to go in it.  (One of my tricks I'm afraid :roll:
Right:  Matt textured outside and polished interior.  May be modern(?)

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y195/glassie/pressedglass002.jpg
Jobling art deco bowl - uranium green - satin finish.  Is this Pat.no.6000 "Flower."

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y195/glassie/pressedglass006.jpg
Centre back:  Matt textured exterior and polished clear interior with metal rim.  Looks white with a hint of pink, but it looks as though it might have been used to put paint in, which might explain the hint of pink???
Foreground:  Plate and candle holders.  Possibly Chance - but just a guess.

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y195/glassie/pressedglass005.jpg
Chevron pattern vaseline bowl (doesn't glow as much as the Jobling in UV light).  Possibly Czech?

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y195/glassie/pressedglass003.jpg
Green fruit bowl set with a V shape pattern.  The smaller glasses have a square foot.  Seem to have seen something similar quite recently.  ? Czech (unidentified).

Thank you for taking the time to look :lol:  Any comments greatly appreciated as always. :lol:

Regards - Anne E.B.

I think the bowl with a metal rim is Sowerby's.

Bit short on time right now - but thought I could at least jot that down for you.

Hi t'other Anne :)

From the top...

1. I've seen Bagley with the same sort of hand-painted decoration on them, notably the small tulip vases like these of mine (mine aren't painted) http://yobunny.org.uk/gallery1/displayimage.php?pos=-139

2. Yes, Jobling Flower - see Tony H's excellent album for more examples of this and other Jobling bowls... http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/thumbnails.php?album=14

3. This looks very much like my octagonal plate pattern - see current thread here: http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,2876.0.html. Can you take a picture looking down into the bowl please Anne?

4. No idea on this one I'm afraid.

5. Not Czech, but Sowerby 2631 pattern as identified by Adam Dodds here on the board in thread http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,2183.0.html

Does that help for starters? :)

Thank you Glen and Anne for such a quick response and for the information given!:P

Anne - I saw a "Grantham" vase decorated with similar handpainted flowers, so just guessed that it was Bagley also, without really knowing.

Here's an aerial view of the metal rimmed bowl which Glen thinks is Sowerby. http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y195/glassie/interior001.jpg
It looks as though someone has used this bowl to put their paint brushes in when decorating - there looks to be paint stuck underneath the rim :roll:  hence the uncertainty about the actual colour - until I've cleaned it properly. :roll:


Regards - t'other Anne E.B. :wink:

No. Now I see your bowl from that angle I don't think it is. Here's the Sowerby one that I thought it might be........

I agree with the other Anne ( :lol: ) that it is like her plate (which has me stumped for now).

Thanks Anne, yes it is the same central pattern as my octagonal plate. :D The plate doesn't have the edging pattern though. Funnily enough mine had a pinky tinge till it was washed as well... as it was really dirty I thought it may be that horrid pinky gunge that gets onto tiles etc when they've not been cleaned for ages (memories of flat-hunting for teenagers coming out here!) :roll:

Glen thanks for your thoughts on Sowerby - it doesn't feel like Sowerby so I'm sure you're right there.  Having seen your picture though there are strong similarities, so perhaps ours are tweaked-for-difference-to-avoid-plagiarism copies of the Sowerby pattern or vice-versa?

The odd thing is Anne - I have seen a definite Sowerby piece with that identical "silver" metal rim.

Glen, could that be because, as, I think it was Adam D, explained a while ago, much of the metalwork used on glass was made by one or two metalworkers?  Perhaps many firms would use the same style rim? I'm very dim when it comes to the metalwork part of glass so just offering it as a thought - I could (and probably am! :lol:) way off base here.

Absolutely Anne. I wouldn't normally judge by the metalwork...it was just that the pattern looked the same (until I saw it from above) and the metal work provided the extra clue.

But 'twas wrong  :roll:

Anne, do you still have a picture of your bowl please? The Photobucket one has gone :(

This now looks like the same pattern as the plate that David has listed as Chance Britannia pattern... see here: Britannia
