Iridescent vase with silver overlay
« on: January 09, 2019, 02:40:20 AM »
Hi.  I'm new to this board so if my query is not quite right let me know!  I have a small vase, about 5" tall, made of iridescent blue glass with a silver overlay.  The overlay is marked with a La Pierre mark and I'm trying to identify the glass maker.  I've not been able to find a maker mark I can identify.  The only mark is on the bottom, it is etched 1/23 and below that the number 6.  There is a mark on the bottom where the vase was taken off the blowing pipe.  The vase itself as I said is about 5" tall with a trilled very symmetrical folded/ ruffled top.  Any insights in my little vase would greatly be appreciated.

Hello and welcome.  :)
We really need to see it to help. We have plenty of techie help and info here:-

to help you post images. You just need to find the right set of instructions for the systems you use.
A plain background helps, we need to see the base, the rim, any marks and the whole thing, please.
You can post up to 4 images per comment, just click on the "Choose file" box underneath, then on (more attachments) under the first box, to get the next box to pop up.
Cheers, Sue (M)

Thanks.  I hope this post works.  I've included a couple of photos.  The important one of the bottom didn't photograph very well but you can just make out the etched numbers.  The color is off in the photo; it's actually the same color as the main body of the vase.  As I said in my previous post the vase is about 5" tall and I've verified that the silverwork is by La Pierre based on a mark on the silver. If more photos are needed please let me know and I;ll take a few more.   Any suggestions on the glassmaker would be greatly appreciated.

Thank-you, those are great.  :)
I think those should be enough for somebody who might know what it is, to be able to recognise it.
It is rather lovely.

There are a number of Loetz vases online with LaPierre silver overlay.
I don't know much at all about Loetz but hopeful someone will be able to help you and confirm a glass id.
Is it possible to have a photograph in daylight against a white background so the decor on the glass can be seen clearly please?
That might help id a decor as well as the shape.  It could be something like Loetz Cobalt Papillon at a guess from the color but without seeing the actual decor clearly it is very difficult to tell.
Very pretty.
