Glass / Re: Opalescent amphora vase - miniature 7cm. Is it Murano or Venetian ? & date

ok this is not related to mine in any way but I thought, given discussions on another thread and that I was questioning this technique in my mind, it was interesting that the handles were applied bottom up (well that's how it looks to me?). It's ancient.
No one told them they werenít supposed to put their handles on that wayÖ.

Re the vase shape and me questioning whether there were such shapes as vases in 'earlier than 19th century' Venetian glass, according to this Wikipedia page the blue vase at top left with handles applied bottom up, is 17th century Venetian glass and in the Hermitage.  I have no idea if that info is correct.  I'm amazed.  Never seen anything like it before.

This chalcedony vase 1700s also in the Hermitage - handles applied bottom up.  Not so worried about the handles now.

I know what you mean John (solid opaque rather than streaky and showing areas of clear?)

Great goblet.  Was the foot the streaky white effect like the vase?  Grasping at straws here but the clear on your photo also has that slightly pinky tinge. 

That said my Salviati ewer also does not have the little fine black specks in the glass like the little vase does.  So it was a long shot I guess.

mmm, right.  More thoughts needed on my part I think.

Thanks ever so much for your help.

Glass / Re: Water jug - Teachers Whisky promotional - who and how did they do that?

Just had a look with a loupe and the red is definitely frit, can see that it is granular and it has a distinct edge. From the inside it goes clear glass, white characters, red.

In my imagination, a round stencil gives the red shape in powder on the marver another deeper stencil for the letters. First the letters are picked up on the hot bubble then the red circle, blowing/shaping is finished, add handle etc... Simple, unless you actually have to do it yourself!

This tiny girasol goblet has a stem with a white core that was not opalescent. If it is like the white normally used in latticino it will be saturated with pigment (what is the right term?) so when drawn out it is still opaque rather than just fading away.

I don't think the two are contemporary, the goblet being late 19th C Salviati.

No worries, if you put the number in the gallery search field it will show some more examples. As this is an early Pearline pattern Iím curious to know why itís so more rare than other ranges of the similar era.
Thanks

Thanks for your knowledge and information.
