Vaseline Vanity Set - Jacobean ? ID = Bernsdorf 'Lady'
« on: November 22, 2005, 09:16:56 PM »
Here is another vanity set.  This one is pale yellow green of what we Americans call vaseline glass. Is this Jacobean? 

Whole set

Close up of the bottles

It glows stongly under UV.  DH saw it sitting on the dining room table in natural sunlight and commented on the strong glow.

I am reasonably sure it is not American. They are not marked in any manner.

Mod: Pics gone but catalogue photo further down thread.

Hi Connie, guess this is the one you announced on the other thread?
BEAUTIFUL!

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 of worldly things moves his soul.    (Alfred Lichtwark 1852 – 1914)

Connie - I don't think this is Inwald's Jacobean.

I suggest it is actually Bernsdorf's "Lady" suite.

Glen
ps I am not sure, but I think that Walther may also have used this pattern - I'll check and get back to you. Hmmn, can't see it - so stay with Bernsdorf - 1932 catalogue.

Thank you, Pamela.  It is lovely.

Glen - thank you for the information.  I just learned to NOT google Bernsdorf Lady  :shock: I ended up on a German escort service site  :lol:

But by putting in Bernsdork Glass, I found this site

http://www.pressglas.de/Sammlung/Teller_Einfuhrungstext/English/Explanations/Glassworks/glassworks.html

While I can read enough French to understand the gist of a website, my German is very lacking.  :cry: I will spend some quiet time tomorrow just paging through that site and hopefully find the pattern. Even if I don't it will be fun looking  :)

Connie  :oops:  :oops:  :oops:

That is sooo funny - thanks for the giggle. Sorry to send you to an X rated site.

If you can't find an illustration of Lady then I will try and scan some items in for you tomorrow.

I know what you mean about that wonderful vaseline glow. We have some of ours in the bay window and in the twilight, the glow is almost ethereal. Wonderful!

Pamela - I apologize. I should have realized that you would have a piece of this pattern pictured on your site.  After Glen provided the copy of the catalog page (thank you Glen) I saw you have a vase in this pattern on your site  :oops:

Glen and Pamela,  I would like to thank you both for helping me identify both of my vanity sets.  I am going to add them to my website and would like to give credit to this board and you both specifically. Is it permissible to mention your names?

I would also like to add both your sites to my "Favorite Sites" link page on my website if that is OK with you also.

Connie, of course you can mention my name (Glen Thistlewood). I'd be honored. Can you also credit Siegmar Gieselberger and his Pressglas Korrespondenz?

And yes, please, add my website. I will do the same with yours too, of course.

Many thanks.

Thank you, Glen.

I have added the toilette sets and recognized the contributions of this board and it's members.

I have also added links on my special links page.  If anyone linked there wants a different description for their link (or wants it removed), then please just e-mail me.  My e-mail is on my homepage (link in sig line).

Thank you again for all the assistance in correctly identifying these pieces  :)
