Chris, sorry for being pedantic, but in your earlier post (Reply #6), you said:

... the only thing I have seen recently similar is a lot of Polish glass with similar single blue stripes no white ...
You specified "no white". However, the Turkish items in the Pinterest page do have white threads as well as blue.

A general point though, is that in the Turkish items the coloured and white threads are separated and are alternately blue / white, whereas in Clichy / Boston & Sandwhich examples, the threads are made as a single strip of colour edged with white on both sides. So, although there is a similarity at a distance, it's quite easy to separate the Turkish from the French / US.

I said similar not exact, that's why i thought john was worried it was modern, i'm looking at thousands of pieces of glass a week, i can not remember everything or alter a thread on here after an hour.

I have looked through the Clichy book and could not see similar canes although there are many pieces in the  book.

I did find this.

and this from the collection:

The cane formation looks to be the same at least as the first piece maybe?
The shape is similar to the second.

another piece with similar canes in the background here

I wonder if the carafes are Bohemian?

I think the mezeum.sumava item (038.jpg) at the back of the picture has single threads of blue and red over a white base colour of the iitem. The colours, next to each other, are blue/white/red/white etc. rather than white/blue/white white/red/white. So I would discount it from the type under discussion.
