Thomas Webb cut bullseye vase
« on: November 15, 2011, 05:55:42 PM »
I bought this for really cheap.  I kind of thought that Webb was a good brand.  I don't think this is a very desirable form, but I like the cutting on this one.

Nice find!  :clap:  I have a Webb 'Bullseye' vase similar this one (but in Uranium green - from the 'Gay Glass' range) cut with 'Waterlily', and at the National Glass Fair last Sunday I saw another 'Bullseye' vase cut with a Waterlily pattern which was different from mine.  Now I see yours, cut with a more geometric design! 

It seems Webb 'Bullseye' vases were cut with many different designs, as well as being left with plain 'Bullseyes' - and I notice that the basic vase shape also varied! :D Isn't this fun?  How many different variations can we find? ;D

I have 2 Webb vases that shape but I think bigger.  One is a clear bullseye and the other uranium green with a wave pattern.  I have never seen that kind of cutting on any Webb vases.  As yours is marked Made in England Webb, then that dates it 1936 to 1949.  At least according to the book Glass Signatures Trademarks and Trade Names by Anne Geffken Pullin.
