The following are described as Ysart type. The shapes look familiar but with my very limited non paperweight knowledge, the colours look unusual. Are these ***art??

The left one is Nazeing or Nazeing style, the right one possibly the same, but could, maybe, possibly, perhaps  :? be Ysart, need to see the base.

Frank,  Just curious. They are coming up at an auction and I came across them whilst searching for paperweights Let me know if you want to follow up - I am sure they will send you a picture of the base.  I would pm but that doesnt work

I actually  bought my first ever vase last week via ebay (only because it was vv cheap (99p) as the base was cracked) but I havent got the space for the paperweights, never mind vases.

I don't find them very interesting and I am inclined to doubt the whitish one is Ysart in any case.

What would be interesting is the technique that puts the bubble in the centre of the blobs. Very eye like and regarded as typical of Nazeing if not exclusive to them.

I always thought these were done by blowing into a pineapple mould to get the indentations, then skimmed witth a thin gather and blown out. The one on the right looks like an effecct you can get with silver leaf when you melt it in completely so that it reacts with the glass and then splits as you blow.

For the vase to the right, I think it might be rather like one I have, for which I have no attribution.

It's a small vase. [I really should update the photo that states it as 812 mm !! ... 82 mm is correct.] It's finished with a thin, bubbly coating (extremely tiny bubbles) which has then been crackled. The coating does reach to the rim but because of the thinness of the colour, at a distance it appers to have a clear border below the rim.

The base view shows that it was finished with central grinding and polishing but it's a bit off-centred and the edge of the polished area is not properly circular.

If anyone recognises this (or the one Martin showed), I'd be pleased to know more about it.

Adam, pineapple mould would surely give a regular result. I would be more inclided to suspect the pieces of enamel have a minute particle that vaporises. The tiny bubbles are always in the center of a colour 'blob'. Memory on terminology not working today :roll:
