Barolac hazel vase
« on: October 28, 2012, 01:11:26 PM »
I have been unable to find out anything about this 5.1/2"14 cm vase which is quite obvious Barolac.

Does anyone know more?

My brother-in law has one. I gave it to him. I haven't a clue what it is, just recognised quality when I saw it, but he was the one who "did" pressed glass, so he got it.
I thought it was laburnum.

100% Barolac, and a nice early design (mid 1930s).

There were several variants of this pattern produced with different rim treatments. The different versions have different pattern numbers. I don't recall the number for this flanged rim version off the top of my head, but I'll have a look through the catalogues and see what i can find.

For comparison here's a straight rimmed example (cat. no. 11103):

And another variant (11135):

Laburnum has dangly long catkins which is why I thought it was laburnum. I don't see hazelnut trees, they don't grow in this cold climate, and while we do have birch trees, they don't get catkins. Maybe it's too cold for them!
Whatever, it's still a fabby quality piece.  ;D

Laburnum here, no catkins.
Michael is right, birch. And birch does have catkins in Scotland, as it's your most common native tree Sue

I must only see females then.  ;)
Our most COMMON native tree?

It's horribly outnumbered by sickamores and vile, poisonous, dark pines. :'(

Sycamore is not native to these Islands.  Sorry about this thread hijacking....
