Pink Glass - Staffordshire figures
« on: July 31, 2012, 02:16:33 PM »
I recently found and bought these glass Staffordshire figures on Ebay and was intrigued, has anyone any idea who made them. They are a solid pink glass with traces of gold decoration. I can find only one other similar Staffordshire spill vase in the same colour on the internet and the Auction house was also clueless as to there maker . Any ideas ?

You sometimes see a pink fishy jug like these. His mouth is the spout and tail the handle

Thanks Christine, that's interesting but I have never seen them either. But I have just been reading in Raymond Slacks book about Sowerby's Vitro-porcelain and when I read a bit more on pressedintime.com Sowerby page they mention 'altering the colour of their ruby slag glass to make it more pink and called it Rose Opalescent. I wonder if this is it ?

No, I don't think so. And they're all mould blown not pressed I think. Here's one
