Carnival from Poland II: Zabkowice
« on: December 31, 2006, 04:30:38 PM »
I've been out of action recently (continuing family health problems) so apologies for my lack of comment on various other threads.

I've just posted a new article - with more to come when time allows. It is more information on Carnival Glass from Poland. This time, another maker: Zabkowice (Zombkowice). More Carnival mysteries solved.

Hi Glen

Great piece of research, the Hodgson conection seems to be a coincidence. Hope all are well soon.

Tony - yes, isn't the name a splendid coincidence?  :) In fact the UK Hodgsons mentioned it too, and wondered if they might be related to you  :D Thanks for the kind words too.

Della - sincere thanks for your constant support.

Wow! Glen, another fascinating article, thank you. And what a wonderful jardiniere... I love it. Is this something that was made in non-Carnival glass as well?

Sorry to hear that the family health problems persist,  it is hard to cope with, but especially at times such as Xmas/New Year.  Hope that 2007 is a better year for you all.

Hi Glen,

Best wishes to you and Steve. Don't feel obliged to answer - everyone will understand.

It's marvellous that you've worked out the Beverly Crystal conundrum after all these years. So did Zabkowice must have made those intaglio Cupid and Diana the Huntress patterns?

I've got another piece I must dig out to show you. It's got the intaglio device and a similar rim, but the effect has been ruined with a matt green enamel over the pattern.

Take care and take all the time you need. You, Steve and your family are in my thoughts.

Just another thought - we probably need an addition to the Glassworks Pronounciation Guide for Zabkowice and Hortensja.
