Bohemia, Czechoslovakia, Czech Republic, Austria / Re: Czech vase?
« Last post by Anne on Yesterday at 11:08:08 PM »
Hi and welcome to the board. Could you add two more photos please? One showing a straight side on view so we can see the vase in profile, so to speak, and one showing the base - bases are always important as it tells us a lot about how an item is made, that can help with either making or ruling out an ID. Also, please would you add dimensions to your request, they help too. Thanks.

Thank you Chris.  I presume the pic you showed is the only one?  Do any of the other descriptions offer dimensions and usage?

If you buy a copy of this catalogue which is late 1920's very early 30's it explains most of the shapes in the various sets it shows.  It has a pic of a basic set of your pattern so it dates back until at least then, regards Chris.

This looks a bit like like Loetz Mimosa or schaum glass loosely but it has no wear at all, i thought it could be a piece or Royal Brierley studio maybe can some one put me straight please.

It measures 7 inches in height with a rim diameter of 3 1/2 inches.

Michael, thank you for your input on the id.

When I purchased the set I recognized the profile of the tumblers, but hadn't seen the stemware.  Because the color is very consistent throughout the set, I assumed all were from the same manufacturer. 

Again, thanks for looking and your help with the id.

Hi - glad to hear you are having success with the majority of your glasses  -  as a personal note, I've been of the opinion for some time that since GMB members use, frequently, as a resource to establish i.d. for cut patterns, then would be free to use whatever patterns I've posted here.              However, there's always the serious matter of copyright of pix, so I can already hear the dissenters reaching for their keyboards, so it doubtless wouldn't work ;D

As for your individual unknown shapes, you might post pix here - always possible someone will have the answer as to use  ...........  though of course you may well get this info. from  .........   fingers crossed.

The Board does have a Glass Gallery with substantial photo archive not just of cut patterns, but includes backstamps, labels, pressed glass designs, Trade Marks, Board of Trade Registration data etc.  -  all donated for free by current and past members.           Grateful if you are able to post pix of a wine glass and whiskey perhaps showing Villiers pattern  ..........  we will need a good clear full size image and suggest you take pictures against a uniform dark background with suitable lighting - we often get some delightful rustic scenes of gardens, fence posts, curtains, cats, sky views etc. ;)        Photographing clear glass well isn't easy - you may need to have a few tries  -  images with suitable lighting is probably the least easy part - avoiding glare is part of the problem.  Try a large sheet of black or dark grey paper as background.

Regret I don't sell glass so not the best person to ask ..   if you sell on ebay already then I'd have thought that was the answer  -  sending to the States sounds too involved  -  you might of course put the surplus back into auction.   Perhaps others here might offer their suggestions - but whatever, wish you luck and look forward to seeing your pix of Villiers. :)
