Malta Glass / Little Gozo cylinder vase.
« Last post by Scott13 on December 15, 2018, 06:56:50 AM »

I don’t know much about Gozo, other than Michael Harris had a hand in setting it up in 89/90.

It’s only 10cm high but quite solidly built ( 220gm )
I can’t make up my mind whether its pattern is ‘Seaweed ‘ or not.

My photos really don’t do it justice - the bit in the middle ( the blues and greens - possibly meant
to be representing deep sea and seaweed) looks three-dimensional to me.
I haven’t been able to capture this at all.

A delightful little vase ‘imho’ ! Thought you might like to see it  :)

Germany / Re: WMF IKORA glass lamps
« Last post by Pinkspoons on December 15, 2018, 12:49:33 AM »
They're Ikora vases (model no. E.139) converted into lamps at a later date. They're hard to pin down in date exactly - the shape was introduced in 1928 and was still in production in 1951.
Oh, excellent. Thanks so much.

Incredibly frustrating, though, as I had already looked through that catalogue! I must have somehow skipped over it.

Also pops up in a 1977 issue of Glass Review:
Glass Paperweights / Re: Latest additions to my collection
« Last post by zidori on December 14, 2018, 09:36:24 PM »
I was very keen to acquire the 3 American weights and the 2 William Manson (1 Snr/ 1 Jnr) and the Whitefriar Collection "Sweet Violet" for myself and hoped to recoup some of the costs by selling the others on. As for the trip (much safer than posting) I turned it into a short pre-Christmas break to help recharge batteries. On this occasion cost was not the overriding factor. They are all immaculate so I am not disappointed.
Glass / Re: Loganberry pattern ? Sugar

Would appreciate any further comments on this piece which I found very close similarities with the more frequently seen Heppell water jugs. The material feel and pattern appear the same. So could this be Heppell, there’s very little information available so help would be appreciated.cheers

Kralik 'Purple Glatt' is a possibility.

Another photo might be useful with some light from behind to highlight the colours, like the first photo and on a windowsill in daylight should work.
