Glued glass! ID = Vase by Beyer & Co West Germany
« on: September 02, 2013, 08:13:22 PM »
I bought this vase some years ago and was told it had belonged to someone who had owned it for many years.
The opening on the top is only 25 mm x 12mm.
Has anybody seen the technique of gluing two half's together?
I am reasonably sure the raised dots are not of the oiva toikka kastehelmi pattern.
Any thoughts?
Thank you

I would like to return to your message of the 2nd September concerning glued glass. Messrs Beyer Kristalglaswerk used a method of glueing glass that employed two seperate glues. One glue was applied to one part and the second to the second part
and the object then was introduced to ultra violet light the bond was safe and very secure. This method was used to affix glass
feet to bowls, vases,and also to glue metal mountings to jewelry boxes, ashtrays and decanters. I imported substantial quantities of items where this process was employed and they all proved to be durable and secure. As I was the sole importer of Beyer products in the 1970s and 80s to the UK maybe I will be able to help you with any other questions that you may have.

Thanks for your input on my inquiry Andrew,you may have saved me a lot of trouble.I was thinking about getting the two halves appart because the glue has turned brown but if the jointing method is  that strong i shall leave it alone.
On a different matter do you hold catalogues on this type of glass?.Maybe you will be able to help collectors with i/d"s.
Good luck.
