Help with ID of Signature and info on Perfume Bottle, please.
« on: November 14, 2013, 05:12:35 PM »
This perfume bottle was with a couple of Scottish Paperweights I acquired (1 Perthshire, /1 Strathearn). It is quite a heavy piece of glass, about 3.25 inches tall and 1 inch diameter. It is signed and dated but these old eyes cannot decipher it. Any help and info would be greatly appreciated.
Regards
Ronnie

Hi, not really my field but the glass has the look of Adam Jablonski and the signature may be his.  Other better qualified people may be along to comment.

Best wishes

It's nothing like Jablonski's signature, I'm afraid. (I've just compared with a known real one - his writing is tall and thin and loopy and quite legible.
I had wondered, from looking at the piece and knowing your location, if it might be Stuart Akroyd, but it doesn't look as if the signature could read that, although it does look a little like his work.
Could it be by somebody who works with him?
Cheers, Sue (M)

Thank you all for the information. I have been fascinated reading about him and his work already. This is why I love my hobby of collecting glass. You never know what you will find next and where it will lead you. Though I concentrate on Scottish Glass and paperweights for my private collection, I am fascinated by what comes my way in job lots (though I mostly sell them on to help finance my collection). I am, however, truly appreciative of the knowledge and unselfish input of the GMB contributors, without whom my knowledge would be insignificant and my experiences less enriched. Thank you again.
Regards
Ronnie
