Help needed to identify!!!!
« on: January 29, 2006, 06:33:51 PM »
new user here, the site was recommended by my friend Ray. I have a large glass collection which as I am getting older I will sell some and catalogue the rest.
So I will need a lot of help!!!
Here are three photos of stuff I am not sure of.
The tall turquoise is white inner cased with the colour, the stopper being clear turquiose. It is 26" tall.
the next tall one is 26" tall, molded and has a face molded into the glass..typical 70/s I would think.
The last photo is of a I think art deco Bohemian set comprising lidded dish and two candlesticks. the quality is excellent but there is a little damage, more nibbles than chips!!(sorry about the other stuff in the photo)
Any info would be much appreciated.
Cant get the pictures in but they are in the glass gallery nos 35-37

I suspect that the stopper on the cased glass isn't original to the piece. I'm not sure I've seen intentional mix'n'matching of styles like that - but I might be wrong!  :D

It looks Italian to me, though.

Not necessarily - this shade of blue was very popular during the 1960's/70's. Factories across Italy, Scandinavia and France had their finger in this particular blue cased glass pie! It's very likely that the same colour was used for non-cased glass by just as many different glassworks.

Even if it's a snug fit, it's no guarantee that it's original, unfortunately - I've found that out from past experience!  :(

I still might be wrong, as I'm still learning also! But that's the fun of collecting glass.  :)
