Uranium Glass Carafe.
« on: September 14, 2020, 09:14:48 AM »
I think this is a French carafe probably from the late 19th. early 20th. century as I've seen others for sale in France. It may originally have had a stopper and is probably a liqueur bottle maybe even for Absinthe. Hand blown with a large ground pontil and vertical optic stripes.

This link is from the Jayet Freres 1910 catalogue on glas-musterbuch. The image isn't clear enough to make a positive ID but it is very close and perhaps confirms the carafe is French. https://www.glas-musterbuch.de/Jayet-Freres-1910.349+B6YmFja1BJRD0zNDkmcHJvZHVjdElEPTE0MTcyJnBpZF9wcm9kdWN0PTM0OSZkZXRhaWw9.0.html

That's a great find in the catalogue!
No perhaps not completely identical but it is certainly very close especially in the design - the way the ribs only extend to a certain height, and the rim finish.
Lovely large and well done pontil mark - always looks so classy :)

Is it possible to see a photo on a plain white background please to better see the colour of the glass in daylight?

Here are two more photos, one under natural light and one under a flash, it tends to lose the definition filmed against a white background. I've also pictured two glasses I've just remembered I had, they go well together. Amazingly I got the carafe from a car boot sale, it was really glowing in the sunshine.

mm, could  be either - the neck on yours looks longer and the body rounder rather than onion shaped as in both the catalogue links.  However I definitely think it could come from either of those.  I might lean more to Legras.
They definitely used a pale uranium glass as I have a peacock vase in uranium glass from them which is quite light yellowish if I recall correctly.

It would be nice to have some dimensions in the catalogues. Even the ones for sale in France didn't give any indication as to the maker, I'll keep looking.
