etched goblet~Stourbridge?
« on: December 19, 2010, 07:43:08 AM »
Hello everybody! I was wondering if anyone know who made this lovely piece of rock crystal. I think it is S&W or Webb, but have no firm ID. Please help!

Gosh, that's absolutely beautiful!  :D  Just the sort of this I like ... and nobody here seems able to tell me much about!   :-\  Maybe someone will know something more about yours, which certainly looks a bit special!  A lovely thing, and very well photographed!   :thup:

hi ! i think you are right - looks like stevens & williams - design by john Orchard ( typically his sort of engraved flowers ) about 1905 or a little bit later
very nice piece  :rah:

Hello,

I think Thomas is probably right, but take note of the term he used:
Quote
...typically his sort of engraved flowers....
.

This is not 'rock crystal', but is an intalio cut (engraved) glass, of good quality. Nice find  ;) :)

 :clap: yes it´s Intaglio ! like this one - rather similar decorated .. !
and sometimes i think that are mixed things like intaglio and rock crystal techniques used like this pair of vases recently sold in the states shows..
