Glass / Re: ID for clear glass vase with ray pattern
« Last post by Jay on Today at 10:08:07 PM »
not Peill & Putzler? There seem to be a lot of similar designs in their catalogues, but I don't have any complete reference material.

Glass / Re: Cased vase - iridescent - help with maker/origin?

At least the response wasn't "brand new, made in China, from a discount store."
I do think it is a quality piece.
But you never know who might know something here. I was able to get a wonderful american studio piece identified, because the artist, who is no longer working as a glass artist, but writing books, for which he is now much better known, is a friend of somebody here.

Are you absolutely sure there are no markings on it, whatsoever?

I'm really sorry you've had no response so far. It's a difficult one though!
I had suspected perhaps WMF, but the white liner put me off, I'd imagine it might be more recent than that, and quite possibly a studio piece.
You have a lot of studio glass artists in the states; I'm afraid I'm not familar with many of them.

Thank you for your reply :) I appreciate it - and yes - studio piece is a likely possibility. I'll keep looking!

Glass Market Place / Re: Caithness Festival of Colour paperweight
« Last post by chopin-liszt on Today at 05:00:07 PM »
Have you tried contacting Caithness directly?
They do (or at least they certainly did) keep hold of some old stock and have been releasing some of it bit by bit in their shop in the visitor centre in Crieff.
I've just looked at the one in the link Christine posted and it looks a bit familar, I'm sure I've seen one like that in the shop. It's a bit garish and distinctive - I like garish and it stuck on me a bit.

Glass Paperweights / ID. Old English?
« Last post by marc on Today at 04:38:51 PM »
Hi,
Could it be an Old English ?
It's characteristics are: Diameter 6,2 cm and height 4,6 cm. It has a polished concave base with external ring, it has a handwritten sticker that says "WHITEFRIARS". But I think it's wrong. 
Any idea of origin/age ?
 
Best regards, thanks. 
Marc.

Hi.  English, yes.  But not that old...and not Arculus, though I understand why someone might suggest that. I am pretty sure they are Whitefriars canes from the early 1950s.  An unusual piece though...
