Need Help Identifying a Thrift Store Find Bowl. ID = Corriea
« on: September 11, 2017, 03:15:28 AM »
This is a logo on a signed piece of glass that I found a couple of weeks ago. I have scoured the internet to find the maker. I have had no luck. Does anyone recognize the logo?

... a signed piece of glass ...
Is this a paperweight or a vase etc.?

A photo of the whole item would be useful - even if somebody can give a positive id on the label.

And if you can provide a photo (close up) of the "signature" that would be useful. Tip: to get a decent photo of a signature, rub a little talc over the mark and blow off the excess.

The signature is illegible. Here are a couple of additional pictures. Thanks for the help.

I think I can see the signature and if you increase the size of your picture and rub a little talc into it as Kevin suggested, then we will be able to see it more clearly. 
I think I know the maker, Stephen Correia,  and if I is it should be signed and numbered and worth a little more than you possibly paid at the thrift store. However,  if you are able to do the talc trick, that would probably help to confirm it. :)

Thanks. You guys are the greatest. It is Corriea. I appreciate all the help. It's got a chip at the base, but still a pretty piece of glass.

Always glad when an attribution is positive.
It would still be really helpful to add the information that Kevin and I have suggested,  because this can be of great help to others in the future when they are trying to identify their glass.
Please can you find a moment or two to do that? :)

Here is a picture of the signature and damage. Do you think this can be repaired?

Nice to see a clear signature, thanks. 
Not sure if the chip can be polished out....  if there is a glass artist near you,  it might be worth taking it along to see if they think it is possible. This is a good piece so is worth asking. :)
When you have a moment,  can you show the limited edition number on the base, it should be opposite side to the signature.
On the Home page here, there is a thread to help you with sizing your pictures... do have a look, it is very helpful.  You are aiming to get around 600pixels on the longest side. :)
Once you have got the hang of doing this,  it will hold you in good stead for other times when you have questions you need help with. :)
