Glass / Re: Can anyone help with this small white 'ruffled rimmed' dish
« Last post by LEGSY on July 20, 2018, 06:33:31 PM »
 :)
I am no expert but to just give an opinion as i see it.
I would think English made although the blue is not a common color used to trail the rim clear more common etc Date wise i would guess around 1880 that sort of date purely decorative mantel piece or  dressing table item.
Quite an out of vogue item in current climate with the boom in everything mid-century..
Although the uranium coloring adds credence to its popularity
 :)
Nice item and quite rare to find un-chipped piece similar to it.

Glass / Re: Help ID Opaline Glass Decanter with Applied Enameled Blue Snake

Thanks m

A couple of pictures taken without flash but not in very god light, I think the pictures with flash make the enamele look more silver. Difficult to decide exact colour but would say dark gold / brown.

The painted decoration is the same colour as the painted snake.

The decanter is not crizzled.

Thanks Roy

Glass / Can anyone help with this small white 'ruffled rimmed' dish
« Last post by seanduxbury on July 20, 2018, 04:14:04 PM »
Hi all.  Hope someone can help.  I picked this small dish up at one of local auctions.  It was described as a Victorian white glass dish with a blue ruffled rim with an applied clear glass foot rim.  It is blown glass with a ground out pontil (not polished),and todate I've had no success in either validating it's age (Victorian) or found any clues as to where it's from.  Can anyone help?  It measures 8 cm tall x 12 cm in length x 9 cm wide and weighs just over 230 gms.  Any help would be much appreciated.
