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.

Blue pressed glass in the form of a piano. Posy trough or match holder?

Overall size is 6.5cm tall, 8cm long, 5.5cm deep. Trough / receptacle is 3.7cm deep.

Rough mould lines visible.

If anyone can identify purpose / maker / origin / age I would be much obliged, I have been unsuccessful  so far.

Thank you.

Looks like a matte-ground pontil mark to me, which says Chinese.

By chance I found this "Nadelschale/ Needle dish" in the Phönix Set One. The shape is slightly different and mine is 4 1/4" not 4 1/2"  but the decoration is exactly the same.

Glass / Anybody recognize this?
« Last post by Brekko Richenbacher on Yesterday at 01:26:28 PM »
Hello everybody. I have been searching endlessly for another piece like this vase to help me identify it. I believe it's quite old, based on the way the deer is painted. I found one photo of another piece with the same deer painted it on it, claiming it was an old Chambord piece, but it was an expired ad with no other info. Maybe someone here can help?

Thanks John. The base is unmarked, with the pontil mark ground out, slightly concave.

I should think there was plenty of opportunity for scrap during manufacture ;D....and then how many survived 200 years!

Yes, the holes are cold worked, they cut the large scallops with a cylindrical wheel then a smaller diameter spherical wheel to break through the holes. I imagine they then finished the holes to the correct size.

The internal thread in the cap must have been particularly challenging. Apart from not being able to see what they were doing, it is also a blind hole - so they had to stop the thread before the end.

The thread works well too. It is a bit sloppy as it’s screwed down but most of the thread is used. The cap doesn’t just slip on with half a turn at the end (like a pressed item I saw recently).
