Glass / Re: Bubbly studio art glass??
« Last post by chopin-liszt on Today at 08:14:46 PM »
 :-\ My guts had a bit of a suspicion it might be Adam Aaronson's early work.
I have a Selkirk vase with similar colours, but no bubbles. It's a more refined thing, but a bucketty shape.
I was a bit curious about the base marks.
Is there a biggish, thin, sharpish ring around the centre kick-up?
Like the Biot base finishes.  :)

Glass / Re: Davidson creamer, what model number?
« Last post by neilh on Today at 06:56:22 PM »
It comes from a publication by the Pressed Glass Collectors Club (run by Rod Crowshaw) - I think the club has been defunct for a good few years.

The publication was
George Davidson Catalogue No 1 & 2 C 1880 to 1890 plus pages 1903 & 1910
(photocopy of a catalogue, I don't know where the original lives)

There is a thread about their publications here

British & Irish Glass / Re: Another drinking glass for show.
« Last post by chopin-liszt on Today at 05:44:10 PM »
I don't know where I was or what I was doing that I missed that thread at that time.
The title is quite clear enough, and it would have piqued my interest.  :-[ :-[ :-[
Now, I know.
Thanks to all who have helped me stagger my way slowly into comprehension.  ;D ;D ;D

Iím always on the lookout for the Ďcí mark now, thanks Paul :D

I wasnít criticising your photography Keith :) just itís remarkably clear on Paulís glass. I think I have the twin of your glass, same shape and with the gadget mark visible but sadly just the ferns on mine, no date - itís nice to have a date.

Agreed Fratelli Toso looks favourite.

Glass Paperweights / Re: Paperweight ID help

Hi
Your paperweight is definitely a Murano weight, but it's not always easy to say which factory, the daisy style centre cane and cog style canes could well point to Fratelli Toso though.

I would say it was 1960s to 70's.

Looking at my Davidson catalogue reprint, it is pattern number 208

Would it be possible to get photo about the katalogue picture here? We have here in Finland many collectors who are interested in about it 😊
