I think Michael's given up a bit on the "putting it away" lark. He put up all my sitting room shelves - I got some glass on them, then, naturally, started filling up all the space created. He bought me crates and bubble-wrap (he'd thrown out all the stuff I'd collected), I packed them up, they were put away, and naturally, started filling up all the space this created........ nature hates a vacuum.

There is 20 lines of the shorter vertical and 19 or 20 :-\ of the longer spiral lines.

Probably both 20, would have used the same mould for both sets of lines. But on this case it is not useful to distinguish maker  :-\

Hi Gary,
           nice piece, any chance of a picture of the pontil, colour looks very Perthshire Paperweights, i have bowls and vases in this colourway
Ah! PP that never occurred to me. Would certainly make senses of the unusual colours. I had no idea Chic Young used dip moulds.
The link below takes you to an Ian Turner  Monart piece which has the same decoration and colours as my DF bowl. Also I have Monart vase (post war) in the same colours.

as soon as I saw the vase ian put on ebay the first thing that came to mind is Perthshire aswell, colourways mean nothing as I have several pieces of Perthshire that the colours look same as monart, im still sure that your bowl and the vase ian sold are Perthshire and not monart

oh and even ian wasn't sure if his was Monart, and that's saying something coming from a guy who had thousands of pieces through his hands, am sticking to Perthshire, whaen I was in chic youngs house years ago doing the article that's on ysart glass site on chic young himself he had several pieces of Perthshire with applied feet and in colourways that I still havent came across myself yet all these years later, and I have nearing 100 pieces of Perthshire and my mate around half of that ,

There must have been a mould capable of forming ribs at, or borrowed by Strathearn, if this helps in any way at all. ;D

I bought a large, clear yellow Strathearn bowl with optic ribbing a couple of years ago.
(I'm not even sure I didn't post it here, given optic ribbing is rather unusual in Ysart glass.  ???)

I gave it to my brother, but I do have pics somewhere, so the ribs can be counted. I will look a pic out and come back with it later.

I've just found the pics - but it's hard to tell how many ribs.

Would it have been a similar mould used to add stripes as to make ribs?

The mould would add the shape - but further blowing and working could make it turn out quite different in a finished piece.

I'm just very curious about any info. with regard to any moulds used or not. It has always seemed odd to me that I've only ever seen this one bit of optic moulded Ysart glass - even if it is as late as Strathearn (my favourite Ysart glass)
