Question regarding pressed glass
« on: March 06, 2006, 11:00:30 AM »
Hi everbody, It is a beautiful day here today.  I have a question please about a piece of glass that I bought at a Car Boot Sale this last weekend. I am a glassaholic and I have a collection of over 500 pieces from the late 1800's up to the 1950's.  This piece caught my eye and I just love it but I would love to know where it was made and when.  Can anyone help please.   I have just joined this Forum and having read some of the posts I think I could become addicted to this forum as I am addicted to glass.  Thankyou in anticipation. Sheila.

Hi Sheila - welcome to GMB  :D

absolutely gorgeous bowl

I did not find out the maker so far but still digging

Are you that kind Sheila that sold to me the green pin dish lately?

In the affirmative, would you please inform whether and when you are going to list this beauty also  :P   :?:   :wink:

Hi Pamela,  Yes I did sell you my little pin dish, it was a little beauty wasn't it.  Glad you were pleased with it.  I may just keep this bowl for a while to enjoy it before I sell it, although I just cannot keep everything that I find, that is not practical.  Regards  Sheila

More of my glass

Hello Leni, Here are a couple more photographs of my glass as promised. Sheila
http://i2.tinypic.com/qsqvqf.jpg         This is Lalique circa 1930 I believe
http://i2.tinypic.com/qsr411.jpg          Not sure if the bowl on this is the original but it sits on the three graces just right
http://i2.tinypic.com/qsr1fl.jpg           The vase is a new piece from a local glassmaker.  I just could not resist it.  The photo does not do it justice.  She is making me a Chandelier the same colour as the Lalique candlestick.  
The blue figurine I believe is Cambridge Glass, Bashful Charlotte.


I must not take up too much space with my photograps so hope you enjoy these.  Sheila :D

Hello and welcome! Thanks for these lovely pictures - who is your local glassmaker? You can't show us these wonderful pictures and not let on who made them!!!! :P :P :P

Who made the 4 opalescent pieces, what are they?

Is all your glass as lovely as this? :shock::shock::shock:

Can we see all of it? 8)8)8)
Cheers, Sue (M)

There are two versions of the Three Graces.

Jobling made one that is "all in one". The base and the top are one piece only.

Walther's version is in two pieces. The bowl at the top fits on the base by means of a glass "peg".

I have the Jobling in pale blue and the Walther in vaseline. They are equally lovely. The Walther version is a little larger overall.

Glen

BTW....I ADORE that bowl you just found Sheila. Magnificent.
