White Tall Bottle Vase With Handle Maker, Circa, Needed
« on: July 13, 2006, 10:21:31 PM »
Who made this gorgeous piece of glass?  I bought it at the salvation army yesterday.  It's very tall 15 5/8", and the belly measures 15 3/4" around.
The glass is milky and it looks like clear glass was put on top of it.  The handle looks hand blown and was attached seperate.

No idea who, but it looks similar to my mystery green one here:
http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/displayimage.php?pos=-2296 which was discussed here:
http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,5937.0.html

Does that help at all? :)

Yes it does look similar, but my neck is much thinner and longer.  I did read the posts and messages you received.

IVO..................  :wink:  I need your help please.

I'm inclined to think Polish for this one but I cannot prove it. The neck is finished properly, not cut off like the green one - and the clear handle is totally inadequate. The pontil finish looks polish, too.

Hi,

there is a picture of your jug, but in green with 6 matching glasses in Pina's Italian Glass Cetury 20  pg 184, but it doesn't say who made it just that it is unmarked.

Barbara.

Can you tell I've not been too well and have been catching up on my glass books that I bought myself last year  :oops:  :wink:

Sorry to hear your'e ill, but since your'e in bed with the book, and I don't have it....... does it give a circa? Or proper name?  Do they actually call it a "jug".  I was going to start calling it a Balloon Bottle.  I have to believe that is what they used. Looks just like a balloon at the bottom of the neck.
Anyways, I appreciate your help.........

If anyone sees Ivo please send this way

Gracia,

Hi Kim,

It says, and I quote..

" Cased pitcher, green over white, with long neck and matching long stemmed wine glasses.
Unmarked.
Pitcher height 14-1/2" inches; 37 cm.
Pitcher $100-125; glasses $10-15 each"

but I'm afraid that there is no date given, and I wouldn't like to guess, but if pushed I would say early 1970's.

I hope this helps,
Barbara.

My eldest daughter wants to be a teaching assistant for children with special needs and part of the course is working in school, and there has been a tummy bug going round and guess who has caught it....I have done a lot of reading in the "smallest room" :lol:

Funny, my gut feeling says the handle is Polish! but if Pina says Italian, I don't have any reason for disputing it! :D

I also have no idea about the maker of either of the above vases - nor of mine linked below. But mine is broadly similar in shape and also has an "inadequate" (or should it be "impractical") handle.

Whole thing:
http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/displayimage.php?pos=-2565
Base:
http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/displayimage.php?pos=-2564

It's 14 inch (36 cm) from top of handle to base, and 5 inch (12.7 cm) diameter at the base.

I've had this for over 10 years from days when I was buying things that were "fascinating" or "different" in my local UK fairs.
