A lovely centerpiece but who made it?

Hi Glen

Yes I did recognise that but was just pointing out that Walthers more elaborate items resulted from in-factory production rather than as a marriage from 2 seperate sources. I looked through their catalogues looking mainly for pointers that might provide some positive attribution. Also as mentioned I could not find any Walther item with similar patterns to the one illustrated. However , again, that is  not conclusive nor rules out Walther....just puts them as a slim maybe for me.

Regards

Gareth

:D Thanks everyone.  I've exhausted my search and will list as attributed to Walther and Sohne along with more comments made as to style and little bits and pieces that surely helped me out.   :shock:

I'm off to take a peek at what else has been going on since my last visit.  Pretty interesting board here.  :wink:

Nan, I think it might be better to list it as:

"Unknown maker - probably European".

But keep in your head the things we have all suggested, until some day a catalog is found that provides conclusive proof.

Some items will almost certainly never be fully attributed. I've been chasing one pattern for years and years, it's turned into (for me) one of the Great Carnival Glass Mysteries. There's no stigma attached to a mystery piece - it just makes it that much more interesting!

Hello Anne,
Thanks for contacting me. I do have just this one view of this glorious centerpiece I sold some time ago.  :)

Brilliant! Thanks for adding it back Nan - with new info about old patterns surfacing all the time it's good to be able to revisit these unresolved items and see if we can pin them down.
