Dear All,

a show and tell, well this is a rather large piece, 12.5" wide x 4.5" tall. Signed to the base with a distinctive impressed P. :-)

So who may have made it, Chic or Peter or? What is distinctive is the turned lip to the mouth of the bowl.

I have found pieces before in the same colour way but first one with an impressed mark. Saying that the canes are a pretty good guide too.

Kind regards

Andrew

Almost certainly Chic Young.

Dear Frank,


thank you.

Would that apply to the vase and beaker too?

Kind regards

Andrew

ps  I thought the signature was the best picture I'd found on the net of one so if anybody wants to use it for reference or embedding elsewhere you are welcome. :-)

One to add....I think Chic gave great swirl. :)

edited to add:
I may have misunderstood your comment but ...


If the pic(s) of the "P" are from the net, then unless you have permission from the image copyright owner to re-use them here they will have to be removed in line with Board policy on copyright images.

It is ok to provide a link from the Board to actual images on the net.

Keith,

your correct, a misunderstanding, it was poorly phrased.

All pictures I post are of pieces of glass that I own.

My offer was aimed to others who may wish to use it...i.e. ysartglass website's " P " picture doesn't show well at all where the above does.

Kind regards

Andrew

Thanks Andrew, I am having to rebuild all sites and once done will be getting back to adding stuff. So much still to add too :-o. I might merge ysartglass with Scotland's Glass.
