Schneider vase
« on: October 18, 2006, 03:15:49 PM »
I can't find anything by Schneider that looks even vaguely similar to this.  Is it a fake signature do you think, or can someone place it to a model and approx age?  It is not very big approx. 5 ins to the highest peak. Nearly 2kg in weight so very heavy for its size.

It was sold as frosted, but the outside was covered with a greasy dirt film that washed off with washing up liquid on a sponge, leaving a smooth crystal outside although it still seems to have some sort of texture in places and I don't want to scrub in case I will mess it up.  The inside has some fine texture, but this may just be wear.

any help gratefully received.

thanks

Hi

me again

It looks a bit like a post war Schneider piece, but if you look up the signature in the Edith Manonni book - the S in the siganture is wrong -the lower tail should point up -in every case.

So I think its not a piece of Schneider

Cheers

M

Oh dear,  That was supposed to be the crown in my little haul...  

maybe something else will come out of the woodwork to take its place then,

I see exactly what you mean about the initial S - the rest of the signature looks fine, but the S.....

Have you seen the shape anywhere Mike?

Signature is Ok, but it is the son in Loiret. 1962-81.

See here for another labelled example I have http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,5502.msg54958.html#msg54958

In which case I (and by unfair inferrence Edith Manonni) stand corrected

but please blame me - her book Schneider is wonderful -it just might be missing some very recent signatures

sorry

Mike

Thank you so much Frank!   I feel much better about the vase now.  Even if it is the son.  :lol:

Which as this is the first piece of Schneider I have ever come across, doesn't make it any worse in my book.  

I can't find any value comparison anywhere - rather than give any sort of specific value, what sort of glass would you put it in with in terms of market value?

I've popped a query about the model no. on the Schneider forum, I'll report back if I get a result.

Thanks for mentioning the forum Frank, I should have thought of the possibility of that earlier. I had been to the site, but not noticed the forum.

Value would be on par with any modern art glass of the period, so nothing to get excited about. I doubt many 'original' Schneider collectors are interested although a few will be.
