glass manufacturers makers marks
« on: May 25, 2006, 12:22:16 AM »
I recently saw an ad for a pair of vases with the moulded France 81 underneath. I have this ame pair of cut glass vases only mine have France 3 and France 19 respectively. I have been looking fro French glass manufacuters whose work resembles mine( the closest being the vases made by Val Sanit Lambert however how can I authenticate their origin.

Hi welcome to this board

Can you post pictures of your vases - this would help greatly (see the 'how to post a picture' thread)

Thanks

Most likely Cristal d'Arques, part of ARC International.
Please post a photo to confirm.
They are unlikely to be cut.
Val St Lambert is located in Belgium.

dear Pete and Adam,
thanks for the prompt reply. My vases are exactly the same as those on the decodame websitewww.decodame.com/decorativearts/glass_crystal.htm
however mine seem to be number 3 and 19 as opposed to 81
regards,
janine

If you mean the "Pair of french art deco vases ruby and clear geometric design", these have been discussed here: http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,3191.0.html.

Yes thanks for the information. My vases are the same. I do really like though and only paid a pittance for them so I'll be pleased to hang on to them.
regards,
Janine

They are nice vases

As previously discussed they go for under £10 a pair - I see them quite often.

Decodame's $200.00 price tag is very misleading and quite distressing, I can't stand the idea that someone might buy them at that price :evil:

However, I am powerless over these web stores - I don't bother emailing them any more :roll:

I not only find the prices disturbing( although I suppose price is so subjective) but as a recent collector I find the misleading information a nuisance. Part of the joy of collecting is not just obtaining an object but with the whole history that surrounds a particular item, the company history, designer and the influences on them all make the item more precious and worthy of keeping. I'm very pleased to have discovered this site. Thanks for your generosity in sharing information.
regards,
Janine
