Splendid striped decanter and glasses
« on: June 05, 2006, 09:31:09 PM »
Okay, I really like this, not just because it's got stripes, I just think it's absolutely stunning. So probably not everyone's taste. My parents don't look at it in the same way I do.  :lol:

Anyway, the decanter is 7.50 inches high. It is nicely cut and polished on the rim. The glasses have also been polished on the rim.

You stunna!

Perhaps it could be Belgium? Any comments welcome.  :)

Nice one, Tiga. Belgium is a very good guess, Laeken crystal is the one you'd be looking for.  The however is that similar decoration was used by a decorator firm called the Podbira brothers in Novy Bor. Both firms decorated outside blanks and have so far stayed out of the limelight: very little is known about them.

Lipper & Mann creations, Bohemia glass?

After googling I found that Lipper & Mann are Japanese. The sticker is found on pottery as well as glass.

So Bohemia glass is an importer/exporter label and Lipper & Mann is the name of the importer/exporter?

Just thought I'd show this little stripey beauty. It's in the palest amber uranium glass. The dinky little glasses are just 4 cm tall by 4.5 cm wide. For schnapps or something similar I presume. Click to enlarge, please excuse camera shake!

Wow, there's a lovely Art Deco shape to that.  8)

I also like the Binini style figure inside it too.  :wink:

Hi Tiger

Lovely set

I have been looking through my 'Novy Bor und Umgebung' book and Ivo is right 'Podbira Bruder' of Haida 1885 - 1940s made sets like these.

I should also like to mention 'Rasche Adolf' of Haida 1910 - 1940s there is a picture in my book of a set very like yours by this company which were noticeably prolific exporters of such wares up until the 1940s.

Just a suggestion company wise - but to me it has something of the Bohemian art deco about it.

Thanks

Adam P
