Glass / Re: Inverted rim bud vase Id help please
« Last post by Scott13 on Today at 01:28:46 PM »

Hi, found another - same colour, same rim, same flat polished base ( less wear on this one though).

Ht - just under 20cm. ( 8 )

More than sure now that theyre part of WMFs Turmalin series by Wilhelm Wagenfeld - not that I had any doubts before  ;)

The small Syrian vessel is certainly glass because the pontil, small as the base of the jar is simply cut and you see it is glass. It seems more like a mold inside the item, so the interior is very dirty of sand and clay and this gives the impression of ceramics.

This looks lovely next to my Cut Pearl vase and happily spotted yesterday.
A variation on the usual three horizontal intaglio bands, with only two (reference David's Chance Expressions p.101.
5.5" version.

Glass / Re: A 3rd lamp for your perusal for ID please.
« Last post by marcus on Yesterday at 08:46:22 PM »
Chopin-Liszt ...  Thank you also. I know Pamela's magnificent site very well and it is always an inspiration. She has often purchased from me too over the years, and I also sent her pics of the lamp just in case she could be of any help. There is a very similar piece on her site which I suspect could be by the same maker (see photo 4 of an example) but alas it's maker is unknown to her too. The only examples like mine that I've managed to locate have also had the same drilled-holes and positioned as mine is upon the same patterned-base crafted from wood and pained/lacquered in black (Please see attached pics) with a lamp bulb behind the glass. It is quite a 'bland-looking' item until it is lit from behind and the finish of the glass is what I would call crude apart from the moulded details.  I purchased my example fairly recently from France, where it was listed as being a Paperweight (of all things)  A friend/fellow collector has said that he has also seen a picture of an example in aqua-blue glass and so one can assume that the production of them wasn't exactly limited, but they don't appear often and the photos on Google (when one stumbles on them) have been there for many years...

Della - Thank you for checking it out. I live in hope that somebody may have the answer and of course it may take some time too.

Glass / Re: A further lamp from my collection needing ID
« Last post by marcus on Yesterday at 07:00:21 PM »
Thank you for your response & friendly welcome Anne... It is a nice piece indeed. The Etling fish is 5 inches in height, however the Lady figurine (I call her "Footsteps" for want of a name!) is 10 inches high (without the lamp base) and 7 1/2 inches wide at the widest point. The rectangular base of the glass is 6 1/4 x 2 1/4 and is hollow up to the bottom of her dress. The rear of the glass is also beautifully moulded, but without facial features. I can add more pics if needed. Unfortunately I don't have period catalogues and have to rely upon those that I can source online, but without a name of the maker (or a pic/attribution of another example) my search could go on forever!!! LOL  I'm of the mind that it's by Reidel, but a guess is only a guess, and is based purely upon other examples of lady figurines by them within my collection which I know to be Reidel pieces.

British & Irish Glass / Re: Monart / Whitefriars?
« Last post by scotglass on Yesterday at 06:55:07 PM »
It's 100% Whitefriars but has been badly modified. It may be the best of a bad job for a damaged foot, but I'd personally have left it with damage. It will have very little value left in it like this. They are beautiful vases though.

I agree it's very sad but there it is. It is lovely though.
