Sam Herman:- A National Treasure
« on: November 17, 2011, 01:25:44 PM »
I was lucky enough to find this on Sunday.

It's signed: "Samuel Herman 1967 London 107"  :thud:

No apologies at all for a lot of images - there is so much going on in it you need loads of views!

Sue's seen a few pictures of these before, seems a fitting place for them to be included. (These are the only pictures I have at hand at present)

All were blown at the RCA in the late 60s.

 :thud: again! Gorgeous - my favourite is the reddy bottle with the ball-top.
(But I'm not swapping any for my new bit, Greg - sorry!). I'll get pics of my other bits, but they're not RCA origins as yours are and they don't have as much going on in them as my new bit.
Cheers, Sue (M)

Leni's hubby hated it aesthetically - but got very excited (as I am too!) about all the physics and chemistry and mechanics of it.
It's awash with colours - reds, blues, browns, ochres, greens, purples - it's got every effect of silver chloride salts imaginable - and it's got effects from the use of tin as well - they're the grey-ish-black-ish matt-ish metal spots.

It does have a big burst bubble in it - but thankfully, it's not in a place where it detracts in any way from the thing.
(It just made it slightly less unaffordable, for which I am grateful.)

It's lovely, lovely, lovely!  I'm so happy for you!  :girlcheer:  :kissy: 

Can you tell everyone the story of the background to this, and why it is so important in the history of Studio Glass, please Sue  :thup:
