USA / Re: Stretch Glass??
« Last post by theElench on Yesterday at 10:40:17 PM »
Thank-you so much for your speedy reply.

I can now definitely say my bowl isn't Stretch Glass as it doesn't have any striations, it's smooth, although a bit blotchy in places.

Having read a bit more, I'm now not so sure it's Fenton.  One article I found was saying that this shape was also made by Northwood Glass and the two are easily confused.  This late in the day I'm quite easily confused so will leave looking at and measuring shoulder widths and curvatures for another day. 

If anyone has further suggestions or comments they would be most welcome.

Hello Sue, no striations and no question mark, must admit after taking the picture I thought that looks like a question mark, it's just the light on a scratch that is actually kidney shaped, I'll look up Polish and that other name  ;D ;D

Hello all,
I have still not found anything about this object.
Anyone have any idea to point out?..:)
I have not seen anything in Sweden like it, maybe Finnish?
I don't know....
Regards

Hi,

Anne - Sounds a great idea, with Christmas just around the corner I might give it a go - perhaps
as a table centrepiece.
Iím still thinking about it however - I donít want to risk having to give it away   ;D

Fuhrman Glass - Many thanks for your interesting and informative reply.
Presumably by the 70s 80s everything would have been done by machines.

Thanks

USA / Stretch Glass??
« Last post by theElench on Yesterday at 06:02:16 PM »
I've been trying to I.D a plain yellow / green bowl I have and think it's by Fenton.  Rather like Davidson with an incurved rim but more like Vaseline glass with an iridescent (pink and green) finish.

Trying to dig a bit deeper, I keep coming across the term "Stretch Glass", mainly from the US where it seems to be used to describe some types of Carnival Glass.  On ebay there are items for sale on the American site identified as "Fenton Stretch Glass", some plain, others the highly decorated Carnival Glass I'm familiar with (but not a great fan of).

I've looked through previous threads here, but am no further forward.

Could anyone please clarify what "Stretch Glass" is?

Thanks.

Are there really striations on the polished pontil mark?
Should I assume the question mark I can see on it, isn't really there?
It's looking a bit related to a kingfisher coloured jug I (finally got around to) took pics of today. The the battery went flat before I could download them. It's currently charging.
I was suspecting Poland for my jug, and hoping, probably forlornly,  ;D that it might be a Zbigniew Horbowy design.
I suspect it's too lumpy and crude for him, but might have been "inspired by" his works.
I do think we have related jugs. :)

Hello Stan. The circular vase you have in your first set of images is  made by Beyer and co West Germany.
I had the same vase for identification on this site but I have not learned how to link things in postings.
If you use the search function on this site you should get there.
Good luck with the other one.
