Info needed about Royal Brierley vase
« on: January 15, 2017, 05:22:45 PM »
Hi all!

I have an unusual looking Royal Brierley crystal vase which I've had a for nearly 2 years and I've yet to muster any proper information about it which is rather frustrating. It has a mark which can be seen in the  last picture which I think is a fairly modern RB mark but I can't be sure.

The vase stands 30 cm high and 8 cm diameter

If anyone is familiar with it and can share any information I'd be incredibly grateful!

Thanks!

Adam

Hello Adam, very nice piece, as to finding any information I hope you have better luck than I have researching some of their work, I'm just starting to look into dating the labels and marks they seem to have produced tons of stuff, if I find anything I'll get back to you  ::) here's a recent similar find of mine.  ;D ;D

Hi Keith! Thanks for the reply, yours is a real beauty! It's a bummer to hear that there is very little info out there though, if you do hear anything I'd love for you to share :)

Kind Regards,

Adam

There's a lot of stuff in the archives , mainly pictures, photographs etc... but little information as to who made what and when, it's taken me 4 years to get approximate dates on Royal Brierley Studio ware production !  ::) ;D ;D
