Jay, perhaps YOU can correct my pages - I've put this to Leerdam but have no proof - it was just a feeling  :oops:

On your little blue pot, Pamela...

I'm not sure about this one. I did see it around a couple of times and examined it, but I think the text seemed 'impossible'. It should be said that both Leerdam and Maastricht were cappble of producing this sort of packaging glass. But equally it could have come from the far east.

If you remind me what the text says, I may remember why I thought it was 'wrong'. :) Sorry not to be able to offer more authority.

With the green vase I can be a little more confident.

It's a design by Rozendaal for Kristalunie Maastricht dated 1931. They were mostly sold through the Dutch  (version of Liberty)  'Metz & Co'

If the camera has caught the colour correctly then it may well be the version that was produced 1950-1960 in the colour that Maastricht called 'turquoise-green'.

the ABC plate was an anonymous design from Leerdam issued in 1957 to celebrate the 50 year existence of the ABC = Algemene Bedrijfsgroepen Centrale. It is not rare.

Hi

Not to hijack the thread, but this is for Cathy on her 'Melon Rib' pieces



The above is clear glass with ribs and shape very similar to your pieces - I can't see it being Scandinavian, well maybe - but the mark would be known I think, and no one has seen it ref Scandinavian.

You mention Stern - well the acid etched mark to base of this is an 'S' with two lines through it.

What do you think?

Hi everyone,

Adam, the vase is not one of the M.R. shapes I have seen documented. There are a lot of pieces with ribs, but these Australian ones are pretty specific sizes and shapes.

Pamela and Jay - I haven't forgotten your requests for photos! You most certainly can have photographs of those items, but it will have to wait until my husband can free his camera, since mine has completely died now.  :(  :(

Hi everyone:

Jay, pics as promised. Feel free to use any you like. You might have to copy them off quickly because Tinypic is a bit unpredictable.

   http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/displayimage.php?pos=-6441

(10" tall) (order forms state "Please make wooden mould to produce vases shape as per Mr Sterns drawing herewith branded 500. (3 sizes)

http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/displayimage.php?pos=-6440

(6 1/4" tall) (Order forms state: Iron blow mould to produce Ringed Witch bowl as per Mr Stern's Bowl herewith branded A7/7. Cat No A7.)

After this, Mr Stern is pointedly referred to as "Professor Stern", so I think someone objected.

I think these are great, myself!

Cheers!

PETER! It must be April Fool's day! Welcome back - we missed you!
As for the Booom glass issue, there is no resolve. We have meanwhile found out that a lot of the glass which was attributed originally to Boom was - in fact - made at Gobbe-Hocquemiller in Braine-le-Comte, but documentation is not available. True there is now a Boom book - but I'm not convinced it is complete. And about the many many factories which once existed but which are no more - alas, no news.
