You could be right, I don't remember now............I thought that a characteristic of the Jacobean pattern was that the lenses graduated more uniformly in size, and I didn't think that green was one of the known colours...........clear, amber, blue, rose...
This doesn't look like Jacobean to me..........and I've been through the Markbheinn catalogue and the Sklo Union CD, and it doesn't show up in those.
But who knows........ :)

still the difficulty, I think, with matching those separate collars near the base :)

Pamela's master catalogues

I've spent a few hours looking through, however not able to make a match.  I'm still going through it though as I was unaware of this site.

unable to say - but the uranium and the marigold are definitely from the same maker

I agree Ivo and probably mine too.  It would be great if I could find who actually made the vase.  I've not really had any interest in green vases, but for some reason this vase stood out from all the other glass pieces I saw on the day of purchase.

at the risk of setting myself up to be shot down in flames, (again - lol) wasn't it decided on here some time ago that this pattern was Jacobean and there was a Clayton Meyers / Davidson / J Inwald connection?

I seem to remember the three hexangonal ring collars were an ident marker and also the base finish varied between Davidson & Inwald pieces?

>> off to try and track down the old thread>>

Mel

With ref. to Inwald and Davidson pieces.   I must say, I first thought it might be a Davidson Glass as some of the pieces I've seen do bare a small percentage in the actual design shape.   Did you have much luck in tracking down the old thread?

Hi
A long shot but maybe Walther Cumberland?
Cheers Nige

Currently looking through the Walther Cumberland patterns. Will be kept informed if I find anything.

Some of the pieces i've seen, based on your info.   appear that the same designs were used when referring to the rectangular optical lenses it seems.

an id is made all the more difficult in view of the very common general shape and design that this piece shares with hordes of other vases - a quick look through Pamela's catalogues and the Czech designs shows this to be very true.      However, fingers crossed that you succeed. :)

Cheers for that!  I just find it odd that I can't find another with the three hexagonal ribs, even one with a different colour.  I've not had much luck in the walther Cumberland designs either.

.....and do they have the three hexagonal ribs?  It would be great if you could post some pics.   I have not found any that are identical to this posted online during my research.

I hate to seem pessimistic, but do we have provenance for this attribution  -  has Glen verified this, or is it in a catalogue somewhere  -  to me the lenses still don't appear to be the usual 'Jacobean' shape  -  and, I could easily be wrong, but is green a known 'Jacobean' colour?
I'd like to think we've solved this one - so just being a little cautious, and hope Simba is able to help. :)
