Stuart cut glass bowl possibly late 1930s.
« on: October 17, 2016, 12:41:56 PM »
presently the only place I can see an example of this cut design is on a vase in the Benson & Hayhurst 'Art Deco to Post Modernism' booklet  -  it's item 58, top right, on page 15.                  Nigel's caption reads  ..... "Footed vase cut with panels of half lenses between deep mitre, marked Stuart England, late 1930's, 7.75 ins."  -   there's no mention of designer.

The backstamp on this one is faint, but legible and agrees with the Stuart backstamp shown in Dodsworth (BGBTW) for 1930 - 1950, so this bowl could possibly date to the sort of period that Nigel mentions  -  as always though it's not easy to say for how long some of the designs were produced.

I think it's attractive and a long way removed from those less than interesting cross-cut mitres that became so commonplace in the decade or two that followed.       Size of bowl is about 4" high x 8" at the widest part of the rim (100 mm x 200 mm).

thanks Keith  -  this photo set up is courtesy of Dirk's advice ;D  -  and agree it's a lovely piece.                    It came from the PDSA charity shop this morning, so I guess my contribution has helped a little pussy somewhere along the line ;)
