Hello Frank .
  I just took the description from the 'Encyclopedia of the glass on the web.


http://www.glassencyclopedia.com/Nailseaglass.html

"Both these were styles of glass were often decorated with white or colored splashes or white lines, sometimes pulled or combed to give a feathered effect.

The term nailsea glass is often used to describe almost any glass item which has white lines that have been pulled or combed in this way. "

It would be extremely interesting to know your opinion on this item .
Thanks

Alberto Bassi

You have been careful to use a small "n" in your description.
And ebay I believe, come down hard of folk for using "******-style" which in this case, would be appropriate.

If the word Nailsea (with a capital N) was used, this would mean you were saying it was made by the Nailsea factory.

This is not an attribution which can be made.

You used the small n (nailsea) which, according to the write-up in the encyclopedia, is correct for describing this style.

Cheers, Sue (M)

Oh dear, what an old fashioned remark that is! You could equally well call it egyptian glass on that basis, highly misleading. Nailsea pull ups were incredibly crude, nothing like those on you shades. I would have thought yours were made 1890-1910 (However, very similar shades were also being produced in the 1980s and widely available at that time. Need to be handled to say if old or new so would trust your judgement there!) and probably for gas lights not electric. Could have been made anywhere in Europe.

Very nice though!

 :hi:

This means we have a bit of a problem with the information written in the Encyclopaedia!
Who do we need to inform to get it sorted?
