Cameo wine glass bought in the USA - who made it
« on: October 19, 2011, 09:00:15 PM »
This wine glass is 7-3/4" tall.  The design is very detailed with ripples in the water and reflections of the trees in the water.  It has 3 layers of purple glass.  It is not marked.  I was hoping someone might have an opinion about the age or maker of the glass.  I was wondering if it might be a more recent piece.  I have owned it since the late 70's early 80's.  I imagine it is very difficult to date unmarked glass of this type or attribute it to any particular glass manufacturer.

Hi and welcome to the board  :sun:
Your vase is very pretty.  I can't help but I wonder if you could enlarge maybe the close up picture at the bottom  a little so it blows up larger please?  Also where did you buy it country wise? that can sometimes help in pinpointing who may have made things.
Many thanks

Wine glass, M, not a vase ;) Though I suppose you could put flowers in it if you want to. :kissy:

I was idly thinking how amazing it might look lit by a tealight... but Thomas, please don't try it in case it cracks the glass! (Unless you use one of those small battery operated LED tealights of course!)

It's a lovely wine glass, though I have absolutely no idea who it might be by... am I right in thinking you're in the USA Thomas?

Yes, I'm in the USA and the wine was purchased in the USA.   M, I have taken some larger photos but I had to send an e-mail to a moderator to find out how to load them as I assume the current photos will have to be deleted.  I will load them if possible when I get instructions.

You can add more photos to this thread, just use reply and then you can attach four photos per reply/post (max size for each photo 124kb).

John's right Thomas, you don't need to replace your pics, you can add more at any time. Each time you post a message you can add up to four images to it. Do ask if you need help though.

John and Anne.  Thanks for the help.  I didn't realize I could add another set of photos with each reply.  I saw the "attach" at the bottom of my first reply but I thought if I clicked on it, it would tell me I already had 4 photos posted.  I'm working on the photo problem.  I trying to learn how to download from my camera to a program which allows resizing.  I don't have specialized photo software.  The photos posted were taken with a cam which doesn't take the best pics.  I'm also having to use table lamps as lighting and having a hard time getting good lighting and getting rid of glare.

Hock glass would be a better description... French possibly. Yummy.
