whitefriars experimental paperweight vase
« on: January 09, 2012, 06:35:49 PM »
got this one today via ebay, just wondering if it was a run of the mill vase or an experimental one? , it measures 7" high, with an uncased paperweight pushed into the base, it has a anealing crack around one side where the glass meets the paperweight on the base but can not been seen unless turned over
cheers Ray

Hi Ray,
I have 2 pieces that if put together could be from the same family as yours?
See the thread here: http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,42939.msg239152.html#msg239152
OK, mine is controlled bubble and yours is millefiori but nevertheless, it is a 'paperweight' in the base of a vase
 and another that has a similar white and clear random pattern in the body of the vase.
I'll photograph it and put a request for ID. I have a hunch it is Polish.

Ray knows his paperweight canes, so if he says Whitefriars... Yours is completely different Scavo.

Hi Ray, replying with a little trepidation, firstly the vase, not one I recognise or  would associate with Whitefriars, and  not a pattern  I  recognise either? secondly  the canes, not really my thing paperweights and after the above comment [Ray knows his paperweight canes so if he says Whitefriars.....] I fear you probably know a little more about them than I do  :-[ hence the hesitation in replying, my instinct says no but maybe  a clearer photo of the canes from  a better angle may  help?

When Ray Annenberg comes over i will show him he will probably know for sure , i know they did play around a bit with the white enamel as on your vase .

Would be great to get the opinion of Ray, John, I don't know nearly enough to give a positive no, not something I  recognise from the later weights though. Would it not be better in the paperweight section if that's allowed maybe someone in there may recognise the style?

Moved temporarily to this forum for further input.

Anyone recognise the canes as definite Whitefriars? And maybe the period?

I think "Old English" and possibly Richardsons judging by the canes. Fairly typical canes and colors for "OE"


I'm sure Alan can be more definite.
