Nazeing glass
« on: January 11, 2006, 11:36:26 AM »
I started collecting Nazeing glass a couple of years ago because I live only about 30 minutes away from where it was made.  I went to the marvellous exhibition and I have the Geoff Timberlake publication but I have become increasingly unsure about what I am buying.  I now call it my collection of Nazeing and possible Nazeing.  :D

I think the first picture is a Nazeing two-handled posy bowl of which Geoff Timberlake says ''this does not work well as a design which may explain why so few examples of this style are known.''

The second picture I also believe to be Nazeing which I imagine was hung on a wall as it has a small hole in the top.  This is the only piece of my glass collection which people tend to comment on and have suggested various uses for it.  :D

I have mentally logged these two as definitely Nazeing, or are they?

Regards
Lynne

Hi Lynne,

Are you able to post a picture that shows the shape of the body of the wall vase? Does the the front edge curve downward? Only it's a little difficult to tell from the image.

Hi Nigel

I have tried to take some more photos of the wall vase which does curve downwards at the front, it is difficult to show it very well.  Also, it has a very rough pontil mark.

Hi Lynne,

Thank you for posting the extra photos. This does conform with the one in Geoff's book.

I was lucky enough to find another version of the wall vase/pocket in Sherwood Green over the new year break, which is shaped differently and has the hole drilled lower down in the body at the back where it hangs on the wall. The base has a polished pontil that shows the way the wheel was used to grind the roughness away, but is bright to look at.

You say yours has a rough pontil. Do you mean it has been badly ground, or that it has not been ground at all?

Hi Nigel

Here is a photo of the pontil, I don't think it has been ground at all..

What did you think of the two handled posy vase, have you seen many of them?

Hi Lynne,

No it doesn't appear to have been ground. It is a little difficult to tell with the light reflection, but it appears to have been finished using heat, since there seems to be signs of melted metal within the rough area. There are different ways that this might be achieved. If Adam A is looking in he might be able to help by explaining how they would most likely have achieved it here.

Are you going to be at the Cambridge Glass Fair? If so, perhaps we could both compare wall vases and have a discussion about your basket bowl as well.

Hi Nigel

Thanks for your comments, they are very much appreciated.  I do hope to go to the Cambridge Glass Fair, if I do I will certainly bring the wall vase with me.
