Walther Windsor Vase?

(1/3) > >>

AlmasAttic:
I know that Walther made the Windsor vase (along with matching clocks etc) and I have a pink Windsor vase that is transparent pink glass in the vase with two satinized lady figurals on each side. The vase stands 8 1/2" tall and is 10 3/4" x 7" across the rim and 7" x 4" across the base. I have had blue and green vases like this in the past, always with satinized ladies

here it is for reference

Recently I found a somewhat differently shaped vase, also shorter, and ALL transparent glass, including the lady figurals. The vase stands 8 inches tall and is 11 x 8 inches across the flared rim and 7 x 4 inches across the base.

here it is

My question is whether Walther made an all transparent version of the Windsor vase and with this different flared rim and smaller size?
 :?:

I have checked Pamela's site and dont see this one represented there

Thanks for any help anyone can provide to correctly ID this

ChrisStewart:
Hi,

I have been told (cannot remember the source) that the transparent ones are modern reproductions.

Has any one else heard this?

Regards

Chris

Leni:
Have you seen this thread? http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,5800.0.html
It may be of some help, but probably only adds to the confusion!   :roll:

AlmasAttic:
Thanks Leni

yes, I had seen that thread, but, if I read it correctly (and there is always the chance I havent) I still think that the ladies should be matt, while the rest of the vase clear...like in my first example.

The main reason that I brought this up is that I had listed the second vase as Walther and received an email telling me it was a repro. However, when I replied and asked the person to elaborate on why they felt so sure, I received no further answer :roll:

Cathy B:
Here is Siegmar Geisselberger's page on the reproduction - but you might need Pamela to translate (correction - I need Pamela to translate :)
