Harp shaped trinket tray - ID = Bohemia Glass
« on: July 12, 2011, 03:36:46 PM »
I picked this up recently because I'd not seen one before and it's a pretty little thing. Glass is very clear, sharp pressing or cutting (not sure which!). No marks, possibly pressed crystal? Possibly Irish given the theme? Any thoughts as to who, where, when would be welcome please.  :X:  Size approx 4" x 2" (max dimensions - exact ones vary due to shape!!!)

I'm sure I've seen these before - I'm not sure it wasn't on the ferry between Ireland and Scotland, in the touristy shop place.... but it might have been in the high-class pottery/ kitchen stuff/ picture framing/ Waterford, Galway and Tipperary glass shop in Thurles, down south.....
I've had a look through galway and tipperary - no luck, but waterford isn't as easy a catalogue to search!

(ah-ha, found a different catalogue)
Ther'e a waterford harp pwt, here.

Isn't it part of a set with a shamrock, a thistle and a something else? Maybe I dreamed that one.

Sue, thank you, a tourist piece would make sense given the shape. :)

Christine, I have no idea! :) I've seen sets of thistle and something else but they've not been as well-made as this one.

I searched some days ago and found nothing much other than glass harp instruments! But tonight's search has brought some more up! http://vivatvintage.tumblr.com/post/311036358/vintage-czech-glass-harp-shaped-pin-or-trinket

Don't  think so. It may be my imagination

I was about to write that I was sure I'd seen one of these in a tartan box and labelled Bohemia Crystal,  but then came across these and realised that they weren't quite the same.

Edit - no hang on, that is the one I think. There's somewhere to start looking then. :)
