Ed Iglehart ????
« on: March 24, 2021, 08:58:51 PM »
Hi
Can anyone tell me if Ed Iglehart made very small perfume bottles. I have recently bought one and it looks like his work. Unfortunately I am having problems down loading pictures.

Thank you in advance
Louise

 ;D I strongly suspect you have something by Tom Young. Ed didn't make perfume bottles, Tom Young does. Tom Y. did train with Ed. He is not Ed's son, Tom Iglehart.
Have you encountered Ed's website?
This link should get you started...  ;D

Hi Louise,

What problems are you having with downloading (or did you mean "uploading")?

 :) Keith has copies and will resize and post them, Kev.
I don't think it's Tom Young or Ed Iglehart. Or Lauscha. I think it's really interesting and rather lovely.  ;)

Thanks.
It is gorgeous, isn't it? I am wondering about the German girl who did lampwork in Oban, who we have been unable to track down.
This is what I said about a vase like one I bought in 2001, when another example turned up here in 2009.

"I paid £32 perhaps about 8 years ago for mine, in an art gallery!
I did nag and nag them for more information about the maker, on more than one occassion - first when I bought the piece, and again, after Frank saw mine and fell in love with it. Ziltch, apart from this:-

The title of the piece is "Golden Rain".  (This was typewritten on the sticky label on the box. This was all that was written on it.)
Info. from the gallery was that it was made by a German girl, working in Oban.

As it is lampwork, this would not have required a great deal of equipment or even a proper studio. At Frank's suggestion, I wrote to a glass worker (engraver) who had also worked in Oban, but it was a good while before I recieved a very kind, but sad letter in reply from his widow. It had taken some time for my letter to be forwarded to her. Also sadly, she was unable to give me any information about any German girl doing lampwork there, and the trail seems to have gone completely cold.".

I can't seem to find the image in Frank's "Scotland's Glass" website.  :'(

Thank you Keith, pictures look good.  :)

Would be so nice to know the maker on this piece, I have it under a LED spotlight and the red in the glass looks as if it is glowing hot !!

Thank you Sue too.

Much appreciated help

is the symbol on the base a Japanese, Chinese or Korean signature maybe?  I'm really sorry, I have no idea of the difference in characters between the languages but it just looks as though it could be perhaps?
