Opalescent vase with stripes, Stourbridge?
« on: January 07, 2006, 10:57:59 PM »
I think this could be Richardsons or Webb? Or perhaps American or French? :)

3.5 inches high.

Red glass applied around the rim.

Rough pontil mark and plenty of ware to the base.

It has a nice orange glow when held up to the light.
Thinking back to previous posts, I think this is called a "fire".

It looks similar to glass found at Great Glass

I've bought a UV light and I'm expecting it to come within a few days now.

I did wonder because it has a pale green colour when held up to the light. I wasn't sure if that was normal for opalescent glass as I have not owned it before. :)

Thanks

Don't know who made it but I would say not uranium. You can prove me wrong when your UV light arrives, as mine doesn't work in cyberspace. :D

My UV light has just arrived and the vase doesn't glow green.  :(

There is a thread in the Murano section where the colour of a milky glass will appear amber-ish when viewed against daylight.

Kev came up with the definitive answer: it's arsenic, so don't lick the glass* :lol:

http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,3937.0.html

I seem to remember that the white pearline in Davidson (et al) glass was also caused by arsenic being included.

Hopefully this will help progress your findings :P

* Only joking, it is quite safe. :D

Thanks, I wonder if it's French. I originally thought it was a Pantin as it looked a bit like a glass salt I once had. When I compared them together though they look very much different to each other, so failed there. Anyway, I don't think it's that as they only seem to use pinky kind of colours.

I'm very glad you told me that as I probably would have turned orange. Hmmmm.  :lol:

It has the look of a Stumpf, Touvier and Violette salt I have.

In what way does it look like your salt?

Ah, here's another one, number 6035

Could it be Pantin?

I think Pantin and Stumpf, Touvier and Violette are sort of the same.
So we were on the same track, really. My salt is like Nos. 6035 + 6034 on the above page. (in "others").

It looks nothing like a burger. :shock:

Out of the top of my head, my salt was made by Monot Stumpf. After that I think they changed it to Stumpf, Touvier and Violette and then to Pantin. Then it changed it's name to Mont Joy. Legras fits in there somewhere.  :lol:

I've been googling around but I can only find pink/gold glass and cameo vases.

I'm probably barking up the wrong tree.
