Glass / Crystal Goblet - 2 Wafers in Stem and Cut Swirl Leaves
« Last post by Kathy Audet on September 23, 2022, 10:42:08 PM »
Am having no luck finding the maker and/or pattern for this crystal goblet. It has two wafers in the stem and swirl cut leaves. It stands 4-5/8 tall and measures 3-5/8" wide at the rim. Any help is much appreciated.

I vote English - possibly decorated by Northwood for Stevens and Williams. I have something very similar decorated by Northwood that Iíve been meaning to post, itís a bit buried at the moment. The centre frosting will be mechanically ground I believe, even though the design is acid etched (after needle etching the design through the resist). I think the Ď16í is just a random mark from manufacture.

Have you made an allowance for the large stem bubble in your density calculations?

ooh good find!

I keep meaning to go back to that catalogue and have a good look.

I've seen that vase with the lizards eating the rim somewhere - the real thing.  Just been trying to wrack my brain to remember where.
Off topic but found a screen dump I had taken of a vase with lizards eating a rim but had forgotten about it. You can see the vase here: https://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/58093970_moserharrach-salamander-vase

They go for Moser/Harrach but looks almost the same as the one from the catalogue of unknown maker.

St Louis apparently did needle etched, at least I think it is?? - this is their Manon. However it might be acid etched?  I don't really know. It appears in a catalogue (where I'd not realised the designs were needle etched, I'd assumed they were engraved):

These are the design Sapho:

Failte is both Scottish and Irish Gaelic.
We even have it on our road signs.

I am a bit bothered by this.
The dimensions are not dissimilar to some engraved bits of Caithness, but the engraving looks all wrong for them, and the remains of the label kind of dismiss that idea too.
I'm stumped.
I don't know of much glass in Ireland. There was Kerry, there's what's left of Waterford and there's Jerpoint.
I've found too, The Irish Handmade Glass Company, J. Hill standard, Dingle Crystal, and Criostal na Rinne.

I was thinking similar. That the lettering would be introduced by depressions on the mould surface - as names of manufacturers are in mould marked pressed glass.
I just suggested using an oil to make white frit stick temporarily in the depressions. :)

Thanks John, putting bankrupt on a piece of glass wouldn't have been the best way to sell it  ;D ;D

Many thanks - two votes for French then. It definitely has a different feel to other generic etched / engraved pieces from UK makers.

I just can't imagine the letters being made with a stencil.  I would have thought some kind of domed metal mold with the lettering impressed into the mold.  That way the lettering would be impressed into the mold but come out raised on the glass underside wouldn't it? 

Sorry just trying to imagine what you mean by stencil and I can only think of those plastic things you use in a school pencil case to make neat lettering for art  ;D
