Can anyone help me with this beauty? Czech glass? Swedish?
« on: October 20, 2006, 10:00:52 PM »
Hello everyone,
This is my first experience here! How exciting. I am an avid glass collecter and i have loads of great pieces from Whitefriars to scandi to anything i like the look of. I've had this lovely piece for a while and it has me stumped. I thought i'd offer it up to you guys as you seem to have a good pool of knowledge and might be able to reveal it's roots.
I do apologise in advance if there is something that i am not doing right. I'm not sure what i'm doing really but i'm soldiering on!
 :)
OK then i can't seem to add an image - i'll check out how to do it tomorrow from a friend far more knowledge in this type of thing, and i'll add it then. Oh, the embarassment! :oops:
Right then here goes.....

Hi Pamela

Many thanks for taking a look. I'm sure that your right and someone shall recognise it. It is so well made and stylised that someone is sure to know the maker. I've hunted through so many books though and still can't seem to come across anything similar.
I've got several other piece's which i can't identify so i guess that now i've mastered the image thing i can inundate the site! I might do it steadily so as not to be too much of an annoyance!
Thanks again.

Very nice piece - something that appeals to me! But I wonder if it's Czech? Hannah, if you edit your first post and change the title to include 'Czech glass?' that should bring in our resident expert, Le Casson.

pegging the piece
« Reply #5 on: October 22, 2006, 01:44:45 PM »
The cutting is typial of Bohemia-Silesia. My field of expertise is paperweights, but I honestly think your piece is Czechoslovakia, circa 1915 - 1938. I'm only basing that on the edge cutting. I am sure others may peg the date much better than I.

Hello,
I thought i might bump this to the top as i still haven't been able to put my finger on the exact maker etc. I am having difficulty researching Czech glass. Could someone advise a good reference book for czech glass?
Many thanks,
Hannah
