Does anyone recognize this German label?
« on: April 12, 2011, 08:29:15 PM »
I have exactly the same vase, and I just noticed this version on ebay including a black rectangle paper label with gold or silver coloured lettering (24% lead crystal made in West-Germany, and a symbol of an i? within a triangle with a crown on top). I'm just hoping someone knows this particular label, so I can identify my vase as well.

Unfortunately this technique was very common in Germany and Czech glass. I've seen recently seen that Nachtmann for instance still offers this type of wine glasses (cut glass with coloured overlay) for sale (at very high prices per piece I might add, so they might even be still handmade that way).

I was hoping to pin this one down on the more 60s-70s style pattern and hopefully the label, or I wouldn't have bothered to post mine in a long time... If Dirk doesn't know it, I'm assuming it's one of the many, many lesser known glasworks, and I'll have to be content to put it down as German between 1945 and 1990 (luckily "West-Germany" at least gives it time window).

Thanks everyone for looking and thinking with me,

Astrid

It is Nachtmann and as this does not appear in catalogue of uberfang before 1977, probably later. Design nor shape are in cut glass either. Catalogue is fairly comprehensive up to mid 70s

Ah, thanks Frank! Now I'm quite eager to have a look at your Nachtmann catalogue. Guess I'll have to save up to join your website...

As for the technique, I thought these sort of patterns were cut, but I guess than that they were pressed with an extra painted layer or so? Is there a good way to spot the difference?

I have no specific priority requests so will put it near top of the pile for digitising after Moser. I will also offer it separately as a download via http://glass-study.org but it will be on-line first. It was unfortunate that they chose to dump all their archives, this one being rescued by one of the staff for me.
