Ebay auction #  130556683655  (current until 09 Aug, 2011  06:39:16 AEST) shows a pink vase with a most unusual base stamp.  Am I correct in believing it to be from Jersey Glass?

Thanks for that Kaz.  I could not find out anything about a Jersey glass.  I have an Island Studio Pwt from Guernsey but the base has a paper label.  I also have a small vase with the base stamp - but it was called Jersey glass and claimed to be made by a Michael Harrison.  Would they be the same studio - or were there two?

Guernsey and Island Glass are one and the same - one of Michael Harris' "turnkey" operations - where he provided training and some basic designs for folk to set up their own Studios.

I can only assume "somebody" added an "on" to the end of Michael Harris' name at some point - "somebody" not paying attention, obviously.

Guernsey and Jersey are different islands, aren't they?

Sue a quick scan of Mark Hill's book reveals there was a Jersey glass - also set up with help from Michael Harris - run by Nick Wirdnam - now a major force in Australian art glass having run Monash University's studio for many years.  I wonder how he signed his works in those days.  I might email him and see if he is prepared to respond.

There is still a Jersey Glass Art, but that's cast sculptury stuff

They were last time I went to Guernsey, but that was in the olden days!

I would love to see this

That's the  base mark for Guernsey: three lions lying alongside each other, and that seems an awful lot of money for that vase!!

Are you telling us Sue, that all small vases are not REALLY small vases.  I am shocked at the ethics of the Ebayers on the other side of the world!   :24: :24: :24: :24: :24: :24:

No Ross, just that I have two of these - one in ambers and one in blues - and they're perfume bottles, with stoppers.
