I must apologise to thomasandkatherine, I did not realise it was your item, you were selling - ahhhhh :oops:
I thought as with so many posts it was questioning an eBay listing. I am sure you will get the price asked, as you say - you know your market, I hope you see I was only trying to help
I have to admit I got £100.000 for a lady figurine in frosted uranium glass - it was Czech but had a UK Rd No. which dated and gave it an attribution and UK importer ref the Rd No. It was Inwald I think, I posted it a while back but can't find it now.
You are correct about the ridged bases, I could not edit as a guest, I meant to say that ‘ridged appearance’ to the base or as you have explained stump (I was not meaning to question they are in fact sometimes called stumps, sorry if it sounded like that), which I am sure you will concede also acts as a frog unlike with some other pieces (ref my post), I have some Cambridge and you can feel slight bumps towards the top - the holes are so near the outer edge, I think they also did Scalloped bases to some figures.
Yes you are correct about the moulds being sold on - I cannot see the finishing in your eBay photo and it did look so like the green, in fact many of the ladies, in the Cambridge page at Black Poppy, the one at the back I linked is a dead ringer, but as you mention, Cambridge is very fine with few bubbles and mould lines very fine or ground down
Thing is so many companies either through the selling or passing on of moulds, or copying items with slight changes can make attribution a nightmare
Maybe if you can post a very clear picture of the figure as you state (I am sure the bowl is right still), Czech experts like Marcus will be bale to help
At least I helped by ruling out Cambridge :oops: LOL
I have looked at your eBay pic again and ref http://www.cambridgeglass.org/memberphotos/picfrogs.htm
it looks like the ‘Green 8in Draped Lady on candleholder centerpiece’ – wow – I wonder if the Czech copy came after as there is definitely much similarity
It is a real brain teaser, I have pieces I know are Sowerby, Bagley or Jobling – then these really similar figures, centrepieces and mascots that have more bubbles, less fine finishing, when I ask for an attribution I usually get Czech, but only occasionally with a factory
