Glass / Pink pressed glass bowl & tray
« Last post by cagney on November 24, 2022, 11:19:08 PM »
  Pressed glass with ground & polished feet bottoms.. Pretty sure european probably 1930s. Which country? Looked through Pamela's site Pressed Glass Pavillion, no luck.
The pointed "horns" for lack of a better term follow all the way down and become part of the feet. They are also stippled. Tray is 15 in.x 12 in.

For reference as I’ve never seen this one in opalescent before, come to think of it I’ve not come across any Walter Crane inspired nursery rhyme pieces in opalescent but my father does have a few other pieces from the same 1882 catalogue in Opalescent. Faint peacock mark in base, 3.5” wide.
Regards Mike

Just need to find it’s big sister now…

Glass / Re: Mould blown tumbler with enamel flowers and martele like pattern

Yes a beer glass would fit very nicely with hops, it is a pretty small measure by today's standards.  A jug to match would be fabby, there is barely any wear on the base of the glass in contrast to the enamel.

Glass / Re: Victorian cider tankard

Hi, the engraving looks nice and good quality, the fruit is very three dimensional - it looks like they have selectively polished some areas to add highlights.

Have you ruled out a more modern origin such as from Dartington? They made/make similar looking tankards and did some nice engraving.

Glass / Re: Tall smoke glass 'tulip' shape goblet/vase

I think it is more likely to be a candlestick.

Glass / Tall smoke glass 'tulip' shape goblet/vase
« Last post by Anne E.B. on November 23, 2022, 12:46:11 PM »
Just bought this nice retro piece which has yet to be de-waxed as it has been used as a candle holder.  Its approx. 12.5" high, similar in style to ones made by Johanfors.  There is what looks to be an identical one shown in my Millers Collectables Price Guide p.285 in the Scandinavian glass section and said to be "A 1970s Rihimaen Lasi Oy tall yellow wine goblet shaped display piece by an unknown designer."  So not much more information and the size isn't given.  I'm still trawling through my books/web but can anyone suggest who might have made it please.

Just thought of something - didn't Keith have a piece of glass that was martele pattern but pressed?

It might be on the board somewhere.
