Glass / Re: Skrdlovice Vase?
« Last post by JohnM on Yesterday at 05:12:32 PM »
Back in 2010, we didn't have access to the Skrdlovice pattern books.

I thought that might be the case. I started collecting about 2 years ago so that I've been spoiled by all the wonderful resources - including this site - which are now available. I agree that it's a very attractive vase. I was lucky enough to find one which had been misattributed.

Glass / Can anyone id this black cased vase - possibly Murano?
« Last post by seanduxbury on Yesterday at 05:00:32 PM »
Hi All.  Hope someone can help.  I found this piece of blacked cased glass i the North West of England.  Large controlled bubbles with many small bubbles as well.  The base is flat and polished.  Measures 10 cms tall by 9.5 cm in diameter at the widest point and weighs a massive 1.3 kgs.  Any help would be much appreciated.

I believe you are right, John. Back in 2010, we didn't have access to the Skrdlovice pattern books.  :)   A lovely green version also appears on page 28 of "Beranek & Skrdlovice: Legends of Czech Glass".

It's a great vase.

The vase looks like Skrdlovice Pattern No 5630 attributed to Jindrich Beranek.

Glass Market Place / Christmas Tree Lamp-work paperweight ? Caithness
« Last post by Alsretro on Yesterday at 01:28:33 PM »
This will be on Ebay as from this evening. Polished flat to the base, this weighs just over 1.12kg, measuring 4 1/2ins high and around 3 3/4ins at its widest. I'm pretty sure it is Caithness but more than happy to be corrected. :D

British & Irish Glass / Early Pressed Glass Tea Caddy
« Last post by neilh on Yesterday at 11:51:26 AM »
I picked up this beast the other day - a tea caddy dating to about 1845 I would say - very early pressed glass and weighs a ton.

Looking into these pieces a bit more, I noticed that they seem to be amendments to sugar basin patterns, with straight sides. Here for comparison is a basin and caddy from Percival Vickers, then bottom left we have a Molineaux Webb basin circa 1845-50, which is very similar in pattern to the caddy I found. I suspect the Molineaux Webb basin may have had a caddy pair when the patterns were first produced.

I also found this neat youtube vid where a guy has a wooden caddy box with the pressed glass piece still in situ, again circa 1845. Didn't realise they were used like this, interesting to see it.

Yes not found anything of this design attributed to TS but top and bottom finish are very similar to Festivo range and have seen a similar detail to the side wings that was part of one of his candle holders with multiple sticks. But yes could well be Swedish with a borrowed wing idea. Cheers

never seen one in Finland, I would say definitely not a Sarpaneva. How about Sweden?
