Heavy cylinder vase question.
« on: September 22, 2022, 11:16:44 PM »
Almost 7 inches tall, very heavy, dated for 1982, can't read the signature and the label is just as bad, it says handcut at the bottom and the large letters look like the word 'FAILTE' I'm sure I've seen this word on an Irish glass bowl, any help would be great, after spending a pound on it I'd like to know where it's from !  ;D ;D

In Gaelic that means welcome I believe, in French bankrupt so maybe not from France!

Thanks John, putting bankrupt on a piece of glass wouldn't have been the best way to sell it  ;D ;D

Failte is both Scottish and Irish Gaelic.
We even have it on our road signs.

I am a bit bothered by this.
The dimensions are not dissimilar to some engraved bits of Caithness, but the engraving looks all wrong for them, and the remains of the label kind of dismiss that idea too.
I'm stumped.
I don't know of much glass in Ireland. There was Kerry, there's what's left of Waterford and there's Jerpoint.
I've found too, The Irish Handmade Glass Company, J. Hill standard, Dingle Crystal, and Criostal na Rinne.

Thanks Sue, I have tried to look up Irish glass labels but no luck yet, maybe I should try Scottish next  ;D
