streaked vase?
« on: February 22, 2011, 06:25:54 PM »
Hi im looking for an id on this vase it stands 7.5 inches 4 at the top 3.25 at the base it feels quite weighty and old the glass is  green with lots of minute  bubbles going  diagonal the colour is green speckled with random blue flicks the base is polished out to.
i have a feeling it may be Nazeing.
any advice welcomed
thanks.

Reminds me of my tankard here http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,21920.0.html - do your green bits glow under blacklight? (UV)

Hello,

My standard response is to ask why?

This is not to be picky, but to make people think about that feeling or thought - that way I believe folks learn more than if they're just told ;) :)

As for the parallels with other pieces by Anne and Keith, I would say spot on attention  :)

Thanks Gplan,

Your piece (like the others mentioned by Anne and Keith) has speckles of enamel that have been picked up off the marver block when a clear gather of glass has been rolled across the enamels scattered on that block. Quite possibly there are also random bubbles, but they are seperate from the colour, not surrounded by it. This is not the way Nazeing colour is laid into the glass.

Interestingly, having come back to the thread, I've realised that the shape of your vase is indeed one linked with Stevens and Williams. Not proof, but at least it gets us looking in a particular direction. Certainly I used the same logic with the all green pieces with bubbles that were at one time confused with Nazeing, and later I managed to find the proof in the S&W description books.
