Tiffin Modern Freeform Bowls? ID = Viking Art Glass "Flamenco"
« on: February 27, 2011, 02:20:33 PM »
This pair of electric blue bowls appears to be vintage.  I am wondering who the producer may be,having disqualified (in my mind) Scandi, Murano and British Isles.  I'm wondering if it may be Tiffin.  Thanks,
Charles.

Just a guess really, but maybe Czech, possibly Chribska?

You can eliminate Tiffin Modern. The most important aspect  how to determine Tiffin Modern bi-color, ruby, emerald, smoke, sapphire, etc. on either crystal or twilight base blanks is simple. Tiffin Modern bi-color is color on crystal or color (twilight blank) on color & the color is layered on the base blank, never, ever cased...in other words the color is not encased in a crystal or colored casing, there are two distinct layers of glass, the base blank & the color layer. You can take your fingernail & easily feel where the color layer has been layered to the blank & you cannot due that with cased glass where the colors are coated with a crystal casing. There is one other U.S. company thats a bit of a fooler...Marion glass in the 50's used this same technique, usually crystal & green combinations, but examples are far from common. Ken

Holy Toledo! It's a ringer. Only wish there were a way to edit subject line on these posts ex post facto. Well, at least I got the country of origin right.  ;)

Thanks so much,
Charles.
