Griffin Vase
« on: April 03, 2012, 10:28:54 AM »
Can anywone help with the maker of this griffin vase ? Some books attribute this mould to Sowerby and the only others I have seen are either in vitro-porcelain or slag glass. This green colour of mine doesn't look like a Sowerby green, I have also seen this mould attributed to Edward Moore ?

Hi, I just came across your post while researching the same vase.  The Victoria & Albert museum has this design attributed to Edward Moore & Co circa 1880, shown in their online collections:

Slack (p108) says there is no evidence that these are Sowerby (the colours are wrong) but that Edward Moore is likely as they are colours patented by Edward Moore

Yes you are right, I sent pictures to the curator of Glass - Angus McDonald, at South Shields Museum, he  has been writing a book about South Shields glass baron Edward Moore. He very kindly rang me and we had a long chat about this piece and he says it is by Moore. ;D

Ask him to let us know when the book is out!
