Is this set by Bagley? = Jetique
« on: October 01, 2009, 01:14:43 PM »
The junk shop chap wouldn't take my word for it that these are actually glass; he kept saying "Nice bit of china that - bargain at 50p!"  Drove me mad!

The only other place I have seen this polka-dot design is on certain Bagley "Equinox" vases, and was wondering whether you know what else they made in the range?

I assure you, they are definitely glass, but they don't glow amethyst under sunlight (like a lot of black glass can).

For clarification, it's a candle holder in the foreground and a couple of wall hangers at the rear.

Thanks in advance.
Stuart & Emma Taylor.

A search for Bagley's 'Jetique' series might yield some results. No idea if yours *are* actually Bagley or not, but this is the series they would fall into if they were - as far as I know. It's not really my field.

The two vases at the back are 'Grantham' wall vase (design no.3193). Made in 'Jetique' black glass with hand painted design 1934 - 1975. And the one at the front is a Quebec candle bloom trough these were used to hold candles and small flowers or flower heads. They were particularly popular in Australia and New Zealand, where the flowers tend to have short stems. More info on Bagley here

"Where flowers tend to have short stems."

Errm, I don't think so. Aussie flowers have plenty of stem and there's nothing small or delicate about them. Think gum stems and waratahs. Most cut flowers in the 50s would have been exotics (i.e. non-native).

My guess is that it was fashionable to display violets and pansies in small posy pots. My grandmother still does.

I just found the original source of the Aussie short stem flowers accusation here >  http://www.wakefieldmuseumcollections.org.uk/index.asp?page=item&filename=bagley.mdf&itemId=WAKGMP%20:%20P2001.102

It's conclusive then.

There's a piece of 'Jetique' in the latest exhibition in Broadfield House.
