Nason Bird
« on: August 08, 2012, 05:43:31 PM »
Bird with blue and green tinge, seller told me that it is uranium but I don't think so, its more a gentle sommerso effect. Has plastic label for V Nason and Co. I would put this bird at 80s early 90s what do others think? Not marked to base which I think is pretty usual. I bought with a few others pieces in Camden Passages. I am in London for a week visiting. Dissapointed with the Passages, not much there now. The seller did have some fantastic studio glass, some large and beautiful Peter Layton pieces but at 400 each I couldn't stretch to it, so had to settle for a few small things.

He does look similar to mine. Yours could well be Nason.

We also visited Camden Passage recently and were disappointed.  Bored looking stallholders and disinterested shopkeepers.

I tried Camden Passage a couple of times - unless you're selling gold/silver or items under 10 no one is much interested, hence the bored expressions!

I think your time estimates are right, Adam. There is one of this shape in the Murano Zoo at http://sites.google.com/site/muranozoo/birds-9. The one in the zoo is in the familiar brown dorsal blush. Yours doesn't look like uranium glass to me. Black light will tell the truth here. I don't know of any of these ducks that had uranium, so I would be surprised if it glows. But I've been surprised many times in my life.

My dove does; just the green bit, which spreads very thinly up his head and over his tail. Can you check Adam please

The woman in the shop tested it when I bought it, I didn't see much glow - however she was positive. I don't have a light to test it with - must buy one for my glass in general. That is exactly my bird in the Murano Zoo, different colour as you say. I must post my animals to this site, I have a few Murano animals.
