Decorated wine glasses
« on: October 30, 2005, 09:18:04 PM »
Hai there,

I have this set of 4 wine-glasses, that are decorated with I believe
thin lines of purple glass. To me the motive seems jugendstil/deco, but i 've never seen anything like it. Anyone?

Greetings, theo.

You've done that yourself, haven't you, with your little glass decorating kit.

The blanks are from a machine that makes 1,000,000 of these café wine glasses per day.

On the underside where the stem meets the base you will find a semicircular mark that says "FRANCE".

Ivo,

are you serious, or are you just having a bad hair-day?

When I fake, I fake something else...

Ciao, Theo

Sorry to have dashed your hopes but I'm being serious. The decoration comes out of a squeeze tube. These sets are sold in hobby and toy shops,  it is a type of resin or glue. The blanks are Arcopal automated production as described.

Now your clear cased green treebark vase or longdrink glass (depending on size, how many you have & how heavy they are) was possibly made by Oberglas Austria, by Ingridglas in Germany or by one of the manufacturers around Turin. It does look real enough, really.  :)
