Val St Lambert...
« on: May 09, 2006, 05:02:56 PM »
Hi everyone, firstly I'm very glad to hear those of you that met up yesterday had such a great time - I look forward to meeting up with you the next time!

Secondly, on one of my forays to junk and charity shops today I bought this lovely little piece of crystal - it's about 3 inches tall and is signed underneath what I know now is Val St Lambert.  I have to confess this is not an area I know anything about - I just thought it was a lovely thing and it only cost me a few pounds.  Now having looked in my glass ref books I know who made this but internet research is throwing up conflicting information about it's age, the designer and an approximate value.  Can anyone here offer any info?  Thanks in advance as always, Pip.

First refusal please

Nice piece Pip.  The only pieces of VSL I've come across in junk/charity shops has been clear crystal and not very interesting.  :?

Very similar designs but no match in 30's cats. Change of style by the 50's.

That's helpful Frank - so we can deduce it's post 30's but pre 50's.  Without knowing anything about it earlier I thought it looked 30's or 40's - but what was confusing me was the attribution to a similar piece on an American site which said 1960's!

I don't have all the cats. 1924-61 about 6 so I just compared overall style. There are some very close in 1933

Well that's ever so sweet of you to look in them - much appreciated.  I'll keep looking online and if I find out anything I'll post it here.

Hey Max - at least you've HEARD of VSL before - I'm a complete novice when it comes to glass pre-1950's (and some would argue post-1950's too!).  Luckily though, the things I tend to like and therefore buy seem to be (on the whole) nice pieces that I have little trouble shifting.  I don't think this little beauty will sit around too long once I eventually get around to selling it! (Frank, I'll let you know first as promised)  :wink:
