Hello,

I just came across an image of  this set in 'The Beauty of Modern Glass' and if I'm not mistaken, it's called 'The Gilbey Glasses'.

Love the Gothic design - and beautifully detailed moulding and pressing for such an early press-moulded piece.

Fred.

Glass / Swedish? Glasses For ID help, Please
« Last post by Della on Today at 10:29:54 AM »
This post is on behalf of someone else, who has asked for them to be identified. The photo's are theirs and permission has been granted to post here.
They are believed to be Swedish and purchased at Harrods, or Selfridges
The tumbler is 100mm high and 88mm diameter.
The larger goblet is 142 64.
The smallest liqueur glass is 95 49
They are hand blown and their are slight variations in height because of this. The foot seems quite distinctive, so I'm hoping that someone will recognise them.

TIA.
Della

Hi Anne,

Thank you again! - model 1822 looks spot on.

This one's in good condition given its age!

Nice to know it's origins, thank you.

Hi Anne,

Thank you very much indeed.  Whilst the decoration is not exact it is very close. I'm certain this example is early, sadly this one has some damage, although it's still a survivor!

It's great to see other similar examples in the catalogue, the definition on these pieces is quite impressive.

St  Louis would have been way down on my list of possible candidates! Thank you Anne .

Malta Glass / Re: Mdina vase - correct description?
« Last post by chopin-liszt on Yesterday at 05:50:27 PM »
I have seen that sort of intense wear on Mdina before.
I think folk must move it around a bit, Mdina comes alive in sunshine, folk might well shift it fairly frequently, to catch a better light.
(They started using more crystal around '86, and crystal is softer than glass, so will gain wear more easily.)
But if this casing has a greenish hue, it's more likely to be the earlier glass and poorer quality cullet and just shifted a lot.
It does have lots of really nice bubbles.  ;D
I like these and reckon they are underrated.
