Does anyone have a genuine reference image for what this looked like please?
I'm asking because I've seen this pattern described here http://www.stylendesign.co.uk/guidepages/estoz1.html
'The 1930's saw the introduction of Tortoiseshell, Arboresque (a surface treatment of trailed 'uncontrolled' colours, typically jade and rose).'
but, there seems to be some confusion on the web. This one http://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/5715196
says:'Stevens & Williams made a design pattern called ARBORESQUE in the 1930's that was made in 4 different colors. This has to be the most popular, vaseline glass, with a layer of white glass over the top. This was accomplished by a gather of vaseline glass, followed by a layer of white glass, and then through the expert of a true glassmaster, the maker was able to give it a faux crackle glass appearance without it truly being crackle glass. The metalwork is original to the piece and the original cover is even there! The metalwork is not marked.'
' similar pattern/design shown in DECORATIVE VICTORIAN GLASS, by Cyril Manley, copyright 1981 by Ward Lock Limited and Manley. color photo #285 -- part of a collection of art glass to be sold live on eBayLiveAuctions on Oct 5th at 1pm, Andy & Rob Collection.'
The reference is Manley and I don't have that book. Can anyone check to see if it is the same decor please? Many thanks.
Subsequently I've found a couple of pieces like the white surface crackle above, described as Arboresque from Stevens and Williams.
I'm interested because I have found a particular piece in this decor, not described as S&W Arboresque, but which matches a piece I have in shape,that I also believe is Stevens and Williams.
So if the pattern is not Arboresque, does anyone know what it is please and also whether or not it was definitely made by Stevens and Williams.
