No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

Glass / Re: German Glass - Roemer Style but Label Doesn't Match
« Last post by KevinH on Today at 04:07:02 PM »
Not too easy to find specific detail relating to the label, although a google search (excluding "pinterest" entries) shows a few pages with evidence of the same label for boxed "home wares" or "tourist wares".

And a couple of references give "Kunze" as a possible clue - but it may simply be a "home wares retailer" in the town of Vohenstrauß, where, apparently, the "Kristallglas raffinerie" is situated. But the refinery could be a "finishing company" applying decoration to glass and porcelain items.

There is a current American eBay listing for two similar "wine glasses" which states "1970s" and "Kristallglas Raffinerie Co in Vohenstrauss".

Anne...Thanks for the info, BUT when I was resizing my images it stated they could be no less than 125 KB per image. This was the only way to keep within that so how am I supposed to make them bigger!!!! :-\
Glass Paperweights / Re: SW signed swirl paperweight
« Last post by KevinH on Today at 02:48:10 PM »
Hi Robert,

I can safely say that I have not seen another weight like this one - a "simple" swirl pattern but with carefully applied initials and numbers.

Hopefully somebody will recognise the weight or its features.
Glass / Re: Heavy Glass Vase Signature

Topics merged. I suspect Wildnred was suffering from the board glitch which was being caused by a failing advert script causing timeouts. I've removed said offending scripts pro temps, so hopefully that should resolve things.

Wildnred welcome to the board, we really need larger images to be able to help. If you make them around 700 pixels along the longest edge and save for web they should fit our size limits. We have a help post for images here,34093.0.html but do ask if you are struggling and we'll help you with resizing.
Bohemia, Czechoslovakia, Czech Republic, Austria / Koudelka?

Hello everybody! Is it possible that this ribbed vase, 23 cm in height, is a vase from the magazine "Glass Revue"  1972/8 ,pic.5?
Unfortunately, for many years, the label
 is not informative. The color of the ribbed vase is identical to the "Pineapple" vases that I have.

2nd pic moved to join 1st pic in reply #6. Vase split off to new topic here:,66457.0.html

Patrick McMahon was an Irish master engraver who trained at Waterford in Ireland. He worked as an engraver in Grange over Sands using the tradename Artcrystal (not connected to the better known Bohemian brand Artcrystal) until he died of a brain tumour in 2010 at just 55 years old. He is one of my particular research interests, being very local to me.,42002.0.html
British & Irish Glass / Re: Small pressed coronation tray, help please.
« Last post by Paul S. on Today at 01:28:20 PM »
not a clue Keith :)  -  but just a chance that if you search under milk glass whatever, then this might improve chances of id - worth a try.
Of course it's not guaranteed that this is British made - might even have been farmed out and transfer applied in the U.K.  ..............   but I'm rambling :)
I was drooling over them a little bit.  :) I liked the paisley effect.
But they're too heavy for our christmas tree. ::)
I'll remember to find the name of the maker next time I go there and report back.
It may be a good few weeks, though.
Carnelian Crafts is run by Jane Drysdale, who was married to the late Stuart Drysdale of Perthshire Paperweights. She makes her own fused glass pieces there.
I won't forget, I'll write it down.
