Antique Lustres - Help with ID if it is Possible
« on: April 22, 2012, 02:59:43 AM »
I am trying to ID these. I am not even sure of country of origin....  The colors of the painted designs are not as vivid as the pics make them look. Standing approx 10.5 inches tall the ground appears to be a Custard glass. I did not have a black light when I took the pics to see if it reacts or not. I would be surprised if it does not. They are at work so I can not check.....

There are no marks of any kind on them.

The design appears to be hand painted and not a transfer application.  Not really my style of glass, but they are quite striking in person.....

Any and all helps or hints will be greatly appreciated.

TIA,  Craig

The custard colour and the quality look good for Harrach. Certainly Bohemian. The turned-down style is not the standard for the UK market though.

I'll eat my hat if they don't glow brightly with UV.
And I love my hat.  ;D

could French not be a possibility as well?
Or Josephinenhutte for the base lustre if not the enamelling?

Just thought I would bump these to see if any new eyes may see them..... Still trying to figure these out and I have really found nothing similar to them..... 

TIA

Possibly no help at all but the enamelling reminds me of Oertel or Pfohl.

Dont know if this will help,but because i thought they were so STUNNING i had a quick look & found some of the dangly glass bits (prism ?) listed as French Crystal,do not know if these prism are all the same style or vary within countries.
And the decoration does remind me of French work,but i know nothing,sorry  ;D
