Floris Meydam Leerdam Unica Kugelvase Vase Paperweight Glass AM
« on: September 26, 2012, 08:25:35 AM »
Selling to the highest bidder as unsure how much it is worth but should be well into the hundreds judging by similar pieces I have seen.
Prefer cash on collection in Wimbledon, London UK

Its Floris Meydam - marked F. Meydam Leerdam Unica  AM - (date letters for 1956) and 1099 (piece number)


I think this is a quite rare one from that era

Anyone with any ideas as to how much it may be worth feel free to estimate.

Paul

Hi and welcome to the gmb.
Thank you for putting this in the correct place, the market, but I should let you know that we do not really discuss values here. They are very subjective. Our major interest is the glass itself.
Cheers, Sue (M)

Better quality and more pictures, including base shots, and information re condition and dimensions are needed if you are serious about selling.

Hi Sue,

yes, my objective is to sell it but obviously not sure of the value, I have other glass pieces as well, but think this is the best one.

Lustrousstone - it won't let me upload the pics here so have posted them on flickr
http://www.flickr.com/photos/50216832@N05/

It is approx 9cm high - there are no chips or cracks or dings etc, but obviously with glass if you look hard you can always see surface scratches especially on the base
Its quite hard for the markings on the base to show up in the pictures sorry,

You can often get an idea of the price something is achieving by looking for similar (or the same) items on ebay and watching to see how they end. 
You can upload 4 images per posting - there's a bit to click on under the box to the left of "Browse", which says "more images". This will give you another "browse" box.

To photograph signatures on glass, it often helps to rub a tiny bit of talcum powder over the mark and brush the remainder off before photographing.

If you have other things you'd like to show and discuss or have identified, please use a different thread for each item.

Floris Meydam is an important maker.  :)

Meijdam had 1579 made in 1956, the next year that production increased to over 3000 - so rarity is quite relative.
