Glass / Vaseline glass vase with prunts
« Last post by fatbelly on Today at 01:19:22 PM »
I bought this little piece with some loetz pieces and wondered if anyone here recognised it as from a specific maker or is it more just generic Victorian Edwardian Vaseline glass made by whoever.
The piece glows strongly under uv and measures 3.25h with a broad polished pontil pontil.The image makes it looked stepped on the base but it just a foot rim with the polished pontil.
The piece has streaks and prunts to either side.
Thanks in advance.
Glass / Heavy Green Glass Base, with dimples
« Last post by woodie on Today at 12:51:16 PM »
I was wondering if anyone could help me identify this piece.
It is quite weighty 1.7 kg and has a hole in the top which makes me think it may be a lamp base, but I really do not know. There are no markings
Any help would be appreciated.

I would love to think that these are child's glasses or traveller's samples but I suspect that they're probably just liqueur glasses for parsimonius hosts. Many thanks for the input, everyone!

Hi, It reminds me a little of the vases by Frantisek Vizner at Skrdlovice. Might be an avenue worth pursuing.

Anyone seen anything alike or have any thoughts, please? Where should you suggest I search? Could it be Czech?

I've got a different vase with this mark, NGC or NGL, followed by the number 07. Given my location (North East England) it's probably likely to be from the National Glass Centre. Did you ever find anything about this?
Glass / Amber piano rest.
« Last post by Anne E.B. on Yesterday at 01:40:56 PM »
I've not come across this one before and haven't as yet found a maker having looked through books/web.
Its a very tactile smooth rounded one with a pattern on the base which shows through.
Any ideas would be very welcome.
TIA :)

Glass / Re: Pair of Cobalt iridescent posy vases marked simply cz?
« Last post by LunarFaerie on Yesterday at 08:02:27 AM »
Thanks for all your research and help keith-you may indeed copy the images if it will help  :)

I'd also like to thank Sue for adding info on the possible maker.

I've had a wee look at the glass bowl on the other thread, which is beautiful, but it looks to be more textured than the posy vases.

I can't really find anything about Carnelain Crafts or Jane Drysdale online.

The book American historical glass by Bessie m Lindsey quotes this style as a " Bible Match-Book" page 217 made in flint amber and opaque and that blue and white marble glass see above piccies are very rare. :D

Cheers Mike
