I think I've got a triffid, anyone ID please

I bought this today and am not really sure why (worrying in itself ). Nice cranberry cased in strong vaseline with a clear applied foot. What I like is the way the vaseline has been pulled into protruding nodules. No idea when or where it was made, but I'm sure someone will enlighten me. Could be a candidate for Leni's triffid gallery.

Absolutely 100% triffid - victorian carnivorous table ornament - mind your fingers!

Is it likely to be a British triffid, my first thoughts were Stourbridge, but I am now thinking trans Atlantic triffid.

Yes I blame you entirely for this one Leni, SWMBO's comment when she saw it is unprintable.

Could be trans-altlantic!   :?   I tend to think of this style - pink / green, plain 'feet', opalescent 'thorns' - as Bohemian!    :shock:   Anyway, it's not quite my style!  I go for the plain green / opalescent ones, not 'cranberry', so I refuse to take the blame!    :lol:  

My OH (sensibly  :twisted: ) makes no comment on my collection, but youngest son is definitely with your 'her indoors' in his opinion of the whole genre!   :roll:

I've got a huge triffid in the pale yellow with pearline rims. three branches long. I'd love to sell it but the thought of posting it gives me the shivers.

One can only hope that when the time comes, that there is a market out there, otherwise I sense another collection coming on.

:D :D :D

I think there'll be a market for these, no problem. They appeal to so many people with entirely different tastes to each other normally!

Give me these (pleeease!) before pressed glass or Carnival or Chance or Pirelli! :twisted:

Or even Whitefriars! :shock:  :lol:

In fact, before lots of things.......

I'm with you on all the above Sue apart from Carnival Glass which I've always had a soft spot for as many of the older pieces in particular I find stunning.
