Victorian celery?
« on: January 08, 2019, 02:39:29 PM »
Hi,this piece is 26 cm ht and 16 wd,it has a few air bubbles with the odd inclusion.The cutting for the key pattern is sharp and I'm guessing the bowl was blown in a mould and the foot added??Frosting always makes you think Richardson ,but I guess it could be a lot of people.Any idea on date please and all thoughts most welcome,thanks.

I should add that it's heavy and seems good quality glass.

Hi, Miller’s Collecting Glass states about a later English drinking glass ‘...engraved with a Greek-key pattern, indicating that it dates from about 1870 when there was a revival of interest in Ancient Greek art.’

Molineaux and Webb could be a contender,thanks I've looked on their site in the non pressed glass section and their is a sugar bowl with a similar rim?There is also a couple of custards with the key cutting which they date about 1850's.It would be interesting to find out when the pattern first started.
  Has anyone cleaned up frosting like this?,the glass itself is in miraculously good condition with no obvious damage,but certainly hasn't been cleaned for god knows how long!

I'd try using a soak in diluted biological washing liquid, followed by use of a soft toothbrush, if required, to clean something like that.
I wouldn't let the stuff anywhere near my clothes, but it is very good for getting rid of organic build-up in awkward places and on satination/frosting.
I've heard of folk recommending a towel is put in the sink before putting glass in it to soak, to prevent any risk of damage.  :)

It could well be pressed in two pieces...

Although the pattern is in the ballpark for Molineaux Webb, I can't find a match against the known moulded celeries. The top section and foot section doesn't look right for Molineaux Webb, or at least, atypical.

Thanks Sue I'll try that and carefully!,it is heavy and could easily clunk against something.

Hi,the washing powder seems to have done the trick and a closer look at the foot.
