Unknown clear glass comport
« on: October 09, 2006, 01:12:26 AM »
Hi all again,

As Im totally lacking in books and it seems knowledge...any information at all would be great..

Measures approx 10cm high , top is just over 12cm across. Ruffled edge. Hollow stem. Snapped pontil? I guess thats what you call it. Some of the bases of the ruffles carry down to the bowl, I guess you would call them imperfections.

Age? Maker? Once again any help. I did think Fenton with the ruffled edge but I know buckleys..

Hi Selina -

I can't tell you what it is, but I can tell you it isn't Fenton.

The ball stem and rough pontil do not fit with Fenton.

Are the balls in the stem hollow?

Thanks Connie  :) Thats one down...lol. Thanks so much for replying too. There are a lot of queries on the board.

Yes the balls in the stem are hollow. I have a Victorian pulpit vase and how this one is made reminds me of it a lot. I have no maker on that either but just the way they are both made with the snapped pontil and the faults in the glass.
Also I put comport for this, but its so very small...like a little lolly/candy dish.
So now Im wondering Victorian?

Hi all,

I know this is an old post but I ended up taking this bowl to a glass dealer. So now Im confirmed its Victorian, approx 1880, little comport or sweet dish. Just in case anyone else has one in their collection or needed to know.
