France glass identification needed
« on: November 12, 2005, 07:24:56 PM »
I just came home from an estate sale and bought 2 wonderful ruby flashed/stained glass vases.  I thought I would go on eBay first to see if there is anything that matches and low and behold I found the exact same vase up for auction.  So instead of me, taking photos I just copied the address of the person who is selling the exact vase.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=7365315365&rd=1&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWA%3AIT&rd=1

It would sure be nice if anyone recognizes this.  The base has France embossed with a different number on each vase.  Thanks.  Nancy

Mod: Ebay has deleted this auction, so the images are no longer visible. The GMB recommends using the new attach facility, or the Glass Gallery, to add permanent images to your own posts. Click here for more info.

Sorry Nancy these are from Cristal d'Arques, and were - or are? - produced in considerable quantities.

You can usually pick these up by the dozen from any one trip to a flea market or car boot sale here in the UK. Usually for around £1-2 each.  :(

Thanks everyone.  I kind of had that feeling when I went on eBay and found an exact copy of the ones that I had bought at the estate sale this morning.  Oh well, tomorrow's another day.  Cheers!

Nancy - with the help of a very nice eBayer who was selling an identical vase to yours complete with its original box!  your vase can now be identified as being - Luminarc, J.G. Durand & Cie, Arques, France. c.70s.
The vase is shown on the front of the box, holding flowers, and it looks really nice. :P

Regards - Anne E.B. :wink:

Thank you everyone, now I will be able to give it to my brother-in-law for a Christmas present.  He's a little bit of a glass "snob" and will appreciate all the hard work in identifying it!!  Thanks again!
