Possible Georges Briard item?
« on: April 03, 2006, 02:00:27 PM »
I have a set of glasses listed for which I don't know the maker. A member has suggested they might be Georges Briard. Doesn't anybody out there know? It's item 7396126899. Thanks.

Possible Georges Briard item?

Beth I looked at your item and they are nice. I also looked in Pina's book "Designed & Signed 50 & 60s glass, ceramics, and enamel wares. I did not find this particular design. If you look very carefully around the deisign, usually there is a signature. Briard was not the only designer of this style so it could be by someone else. Hope this helps a little Terry

It should be signed if it is Georges Briard.

Connie and Terry, thanks for responding. I've looked all over the glass with a magnifier and can't see a signature. It's such a shame, because they are so beautiful, yet they aren't selling.   :cry:

there will not be a signature, Briard never went anywhere close to them. The design of "arab" polo players is actually a traditional Persian motif, and the shape is persian tea glasses. I vote factory made persian bazaar tea glasses with screened decoration.

Ivo -

When Terry and I talk about the item being signed, we don't mean that Georges Briard actually signed them  :lol:  At least what I meant was that the glasses would have Georges Briard as part of the design or screen printed on them like these Fred Press glasses.

I don't have any Georges Briard glasses at the moment, but the Fred Press are of the same era and style.

Also the game is probably Cho-gan which was a precursor to what we know as Polo.

I have pendant with similar decoration, hence I looked up the history of the game

Grayhorse,

I checked out the Fred Press items you pointed me to. They in fact look a lot like my glasses, stylewise at least. Can you recommend a good reference book for this genre of glass but not specific to a particular maker? I have a bunch of depression and elegant glass reference books, but nothing about this kind of art glass.

Again, thank you for all this info!

Beth

Beth - I would recommend the same book that Terry mentioned in this thread earlier - Designed and Signed by Leslie Pina.
