Small peach and pink glass vase ?Webb's Burmese?.
« on: March 08, 2015, 02:38:20 PM »
I have found these three recently the one that is frosted is in front i think is Webbs as it looks the same as one in Hajdamach's British glass 1800-1914 page 318, but the other two are not frosted, all glow under UV and there is only signs of wear on the base of one of the shiny ones all have polished pontils, i'm wondering if the two vases the same shape are old or 50's copies.

There all 3 1/4 inches in height.

Any help welcome regards Chris.

Personally I think they are legit...95% of the Murano 50s stuff (a) does not react to a black light as it was simply created by mixing two batches together & (b) they do not have pontils. That leaves you with Webb, Mt. Washington (who did quite a bit of shiny Burmese) & an outside chance of Gunderson or Bryden Pairpoint although odds are extremely high they would be Bryden instead of Gunderson who did limited Burmese production.

The pair with the everted "split petal" rim are definitely Thomas Webb.

The rim was a registered design: RD 80167. The rim appears on various vases of differing size and shape. I have a (chipped) frosted example.

All Webb. Their Burmese came in glossy and frosted.

Another to confirm the shape, marked on the base, Webb, ;D
