I have four of these - I'm thinking czech(?) I am sure I have seen something like them in the czech glass review archive - but have simply not had the time to go back and trawl all the way through again at the moment (only had the time to get to 1956 last week!). Please help - I would like to i.d. for my charity vintage exhibition (see my other posts for more info and to help on other items)

thank you so much - and for your help on another post - Eleanor -


p.s. as you are uranium towers, perhaps you will like this interesting one- I have recently got a pair of Edward Moore 1860s uranium chalice goblets for 50p with no idea at the time what they were except I could tell they were early  (I later found an i.d. pic which matches exactly on 1st. Glass website) and the interesting thing is that although the goblets are DEFINATELY a pair - one is slightly taller than the other! I know they were pressed by hand as I have been reading Charles Hajabach's book on 19th C. glass- so what do you think? was one mould slightly bigger than the other? did the stem of one get a bit "stretched" as it came out? I will post with on Brit glass board later - but i need to upload it to flickr first!

Old pressed glass like the Edward Moore's does vary slightly. It's much more likely that one used slightly more glass than the other or there was some slight deformation during finishing. It's unlikely that the moulds will have been different if these two came as a pair.

You are better not to use flickr. Please use the attach facility on the board, that way your pictures stay here for reference and will not disappear.

I'm doing this from my phone-  where I don't have the link- but I know that if you go to the 20th Century Glass website (the bolton based one - not Mr Nigel Benson alas) encyclopedia section and look through various czech companies you will find the link on the "useful" websites section at the bottom - be prepared to set a tent up- as you will be in there for some time (food and drink to the side of the computer ready . . .) have fun!

hi christine - thanks for help on Edward Moore - I would love to put my pics on the site but get a message saying that the files are too big - they are good quality for detail- and I don't want to take less detailed ones - are the gallery postings on the site restricted by size? - as I am more than happy to start a ref. place for future- best wishes- eleanor

The attachment size is limited to 125kb max per picture. Four pictures per reply. Resize a high-res pic so that the longest dimension is 700 pixels and that should work. Low res photos just blow up into big fuzzy messes.
