Question regarding pressed glass
« Reply #10 on: March 06, 2006, 05:22:50 PM »
:D Thanks so much for sharing these lovely pics, Sheila!   :D

How lucky to have found a bowl with fits your 'Three Graces', even if it is not the original!  I so often see these ladies without their bowl, being sold as a candlestick   :x  :roll:  

I love your new vase, too! :D  But I still like the first bowl best   :twisted:  :wink:

The green bowl with the three fish is the same as the one I have in the Rosalin colour. :lol: I have been trying to post a picture of mine for the last two days.I have been all over the internet and in books but have been unable to identify it.
Hopefully someone will be able to help both of us out.
I have tried to post on tiny pics as well as Annes' gallery.
Fingers crossed for help,Kindest regards,Kay

Still banging on about the Three Graces I'm afraid, but I think I've solved the probelm. I've had a look at Wayne's site (Crystal two-part) and I think the difference is in actually in the level of detail and the base design because Wayne's Jobling crystal Three Graces is a two-parter, but the ladies have more detail than the Walther and a round base. There also seem to be two versions of the Jobling Three Graces, see www.black-poppy.co.uksold/jobling/list.htm. One is an all-in-one, the other the two-part model

Sheila — your fish bowl is not British, at least I am 99.999% certain.

Christine — nor is the two-part Three Graces shown at http://www.black-poppy.co.uk/sold/jobling/list.htm

The Jobling Three Graces is a Franckhauser masterpiece of the finest quality.   I have a green example in stock, which always attracts attention when I have it on my stand at fairs.   Jobling did not make a two-part Three Graces.   However they did make a few trial examples of a third centrepiece figurine, a tall slim figure.   Sunderland Museum possesses at least four of these rarities, and many years ago I saw one that had escaped into the outside world.

Sheila your fish bowl is beautiful. I have seen the design both in an open bowl and a vase. I am sure I have seen these attributred to Sevres in the past but I am equally sure that is incorrect. I am 99% positive that I have seen this design in a post war Czech catalogue which also showed some of the Inwald/ Barolac patterns. I never had the complete catalogue, just a couple of scans but will have a look and see if I can find anything more.

Kay, there are size limits on GlassGallery - 200kb file size maximum and the image itself must not be more than 2048 pixels in aspect (that is either the height or the width must not exceed 2048 pixels). If you adjust your image to be less than these limits you should be able to upload to GlassGallery. If you still have problems or cannot resize them, e-mail me (link below) and I can either help out or upload the pics for you. :)

I'm confused. I know which version is Walther. Does this mean there are four types of Three Graces? Black Poppy has two versions with similar looking figures but different tops and bases to the upright (and Wayne has one of these), is either Jobling?
