Modern heavy Stuart vase for id please (designer, dates, &c.)
« on: September 25, 2010, 11:48:55 AM »

Click on image above for set of three GlassGallery images and enlargements.

H. 11" 27.9cm, d. 4¾" 11.9cm, w. 5lb 15¾oz 2716g.   Acid stamped on ground flat and polished base "stuart CRYSTAL" in thin lettering on two lines.

This heavyweight is decorated in a lovely bold and mildly erotic free design that looks inspired by Rainsford, the rare Walsh pattern by Farquharson.

Any ideas of designer, dates, or anything else?

Thanks for your interest,

One further thought.   My dreadful and often erroneous memory suggested a Stuart Millenium pattern.   Does this ring any bells?

Bernard, I have saved personal reference copies of pictures of a Stuart bowl sold on eBay from Oct 2005 which appear to be a similar cut to yours. I have saved them as Stuart_Luxton if that helps at all?  I'll email you off board about them. Please bear in mind that I'll have recorded the details from the listing which may or may not have been accurate.
