Glass / Re: Sam Herman vase............
« Last post by brewster on Today at 01:45:29 AM »
Marvellous! Made in 1975 and marked as SA, so made at the Jam Factory workshops in Adelaide, South Australia. What are the dimensions, please?

A generalisation perhaps but is it also possible the flat polished base might indicate Murano or Scandinavian rather than Czech maybe? or is that a feature found on most pulegoso anyway?  I can't remember.
I'm sure Ivo posted a flat tray that had a similar effect on the flat polished base (iirc there was some discussion of pate de verre involved in that thread which might help if you wanted to look it up in search).

Hi Everyone. New members  here and am looking for some help.WE purchased an engraved vase from an estate sale with a certificate from Kaiser's limited collection. We've been trying to find out if this was engraved by Moser  but haven't had much luck. The vase is titled Diana with Falcons.
Any help would be appreciated

I would like to revise my previos comment on these candlesticks . The one on the right in this photo is very similar to a dated example from 1972 . Having shown all of these three to John we came to the conlusion that they are all early period Mdina canldlesticks form the early 1970's . Thanks for everthing John !  :)
