I know these two are Walther, but does anyone know what year they were made?

This one feels the same as those above, but is it Walther too?

Wow, the last one's pretty Bet Lynch as you said!  I was thinking it was going to be tortoise shell glass, but it looks like new production to me - something about the way the light's hitting it on the side and base.

I've seen the second solifleur somewhere...but where?
I am not a man

Okay, now I am really confused. I followed the link and have read through it 3 times now.
1.What is the difference between flint and non coloured glass? (sorry if that is a stupid question, but it is also asked in the other thread and no answer was given.)
2. I have the solifleur vase attributed to Pukeberg  http://www.classic-modern.co.uk/ceramic6details.htm, but mine has a Walther label.
Are mine Flint or non coloured?

 :oops:  :oops: Please don't laugh, I am still learning :!:

Hi Della
Flint = lead glass (in the US)
Flint = clear colour (whitefriar's usage only)

Solifleur: Walther was by far the most prolific maker of these and produced many different models - but sadly undocumented as yet. Walther solifleurs are often misattributed to Pukeberg.
