Mottled vase / decanter - French? Clichy?
« on: May 17, 2014, 05:43:08 PM »
Vase or decanter, 4-part mould, oxblood red and white mottling; cased in light blue glass.
Base deeply indented (no pontil mark), rim hot worked.
Height appr. 25 cm.

Pieces like this I see on the web described as "Verrerie/Cristallerie de Clichy", Legras, Pantin, from around 1900.
>> Link to a whole set with the same decor
>> same shape, but with aventurine, described as "Legras"
several ebay pieces: >>link 1 >>link 2 >>link 3

Which one is correct? Or were there several glassmakers at Clichy producing pieces like these?
And is it really that old? (the design seems quite modern for a piece of that age)

Thanks!
Michael

Here is another, I assumed it was missing a stopper, my guess at the time was Bohemian or Czech but...

You see this type of glass a lot in france and it is almost always described as Legras (verrerie de pantin) or Clichy - the company they took over. So I guess all three names are legit. You may want to look this up for verification though...

Thanks John, Ivo!
So the maker is confirmed, but are they really late 19th century?

I haven't seen a single one with a stopper so far, so I think they came without.
The mould lines are a feature I haven't come across yet in any Bohemian/Czech spatter pieces...
(BTW, lovely colours in your vase, John).

Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding of worldly things moves his soul.    (Alfred Lichtwark 1852 1914)

Oooh, phantastic Pamela!
Somehow this has totally escaped my attention (due to the not-pressed-glass nature of the pieces perhaps ;) )

Thank you so much! :-*
