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

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....
