Just bought a lovely vase - much larger than my original - c.15cms tall and 13cms across.  Thought you might like to see the photos.  I assume the PSG 1112 on the markings means Paraison Studio Glass item #1112.

Ross, that's a stunning piece, I can see why you purchased it. I presume it would date from some time in the mid 80's..?

I came across this AUSGLASS newsletter from 1982 on the web the other day, I've attached a link below, the letter is in PDF format. It mentions briefly Peter Goss and also the workshop grant Goss received from the Crafts Board of the Australia Council, which was used to develop the Paraison Glass Studio in around 1981. 

Doesn't contain a tremendous amount of detail, however very interesting to read nevertheless.

Hi Backyardhabitat and welcome. That is a nice Peter Goss piece, showing clearly the influence of Sam Herman. The scroll under the name is common on his earlier pieces. See the fourth photo in reply #10 by Ross. The piece from 1977 in the second photo of my Reply #5 also has the same scroll under the signature.

The date on yours will not be 1971 because that is before Peter Goss started in glass. At that time he was still serving with the Royal Marines. It could well be 1977 or 1981, and I think the former is more likely. The marking in your photo is too indistinct on the screen to be sure. If it is 1977 it will be a more desirable piece, because it will have been made at the Jam Factory in Adelaide under the direct influence of Sam Herman.

Value? Whatever someone will pay for it. It is small but a nice illustration of its context. At auction, maybe up to $100 in Australia, less elsewhere.

Thank you for sharing. Any chance of clearer photos?

A recent purchase to accompany my previous piece of Peter Goss.  This one i gather was blown at the Paraison Glass Studio and is marked to the base PSG along with 12 84/81. I was wondering if 81 would refer to the year of production as this would tie in with the opening of the Paraison Glass Studio that year.

Measures approximately 5.5 inches tall.

Enjoy.

Greg- I've just noticed this, but your blue vase in Reply #15 is dated 1987, not 1981. Every instance I can find of Peter Goss writing the numeral 1 is a single downstroke without any extra stroke at the top. Compare the first numeral in the serial number after PSG in your picture 3, where it says PSG 1284/87 for 1987.

The other indicator is the design itself, which more closely resembles what Peter Goss was doing in 1986-90 than anything much earlier. Compare your other item from 1989 in Replies #4 and $7 and the piece in the fourth photo of my Reply #5 which is also from 1989.

I still can't clearly read the date on Kim's piece in Replies #12 and #14, but it looks like 79 to me.

Many thanks for taking a look Trevor and your thoughts on the date.

The similarities with the other pieces of Goss blown in 89 you refer to are clearly apparent. So both pieces I have date to 89, no wonder they seem to sit so well next to each other!

Kim - If you are thinking of selling your piece, I would suggest listing it on ebay and then posting a link to the sale in the 'Glass Market Place' section of the GMB.

Thanks,
Greg

Hi all,
Been looking again at the A M Fox 1982 piece.  Makes sense to me, as it is about the time that Alan was in partnership with Gene Poult, and the piece has much of Gene's characteristic style about it.  Gene no longer with us, but Alan may be able to answer ?
