And finally ID = Walther "Munster" trinket pot
« on: April 24, 2010, 09:22:31 AM »
Sorry about all these questions one after another but I have been told off for posting incorrectly, you know its 1 question 1 post. So here it is my Uranium glass trinket pot? I would say its Art deco I dont know why but it sort of seems like an oriental design to me. Any offers of knowlege will be appreciated
Cheers Steve

Can't ID it, but as to your observation about the oriental design, if I may add an observantion: oriental influences were very present in European designs since the late Victorian eara, due to some Japanese exhibitions (they inspired Gilbert and Sullivan to the Mikado), and I know the Ballet Russe were still designing oriental type costumes between 1909 and 1929 in France (and influencing fashion and design again in that area). A bit of a long time stretch to be working with, I'm afraid, so not very helpful, but oriental design fits the period and might point to areas where these influences were stronger.

Have a look at my collection online and see if you can set me straight on my identifications : http://picasaweb.google.nl/102861706167408125672

It's not so much the number of postings, rather the number of ID requests at any one time. Spread them out  :)

Pamela
Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)
