Glass / Re: Iridescent Pink & White Cylinder Vase Id Help Please
« Last post by chopin-liszt on February 19, 2018, 01:55:38 PM »
It's not sharp, John, so it's possibly heat-finished. I can't find my little pot which might have a similar finish.
The bases I have looked at are not consistent, some are shiney polished, some are more satinated and rough.
I did find an image online, of something like my little pot which might well have ended up with a broken off pontil mark. It also shows one of the more complex colourways, normally beautifully executed pieces. Some Phoenician is really top stuff. As good as Anthony Stern.  ;D

Thank you for showing the design representations, Paul. I hadn't seen those for RD's 183352 and 183353 before.

Will add Cagney's pics to the GMB RD database in due course, including a link back to this GMB topic thread.

Glass Paperweights / Re: New Paperweight -- Murano ???????
« Last post by w8happiness on February 19, 2018, 09:42:14 AM »
Hello Rose,

most likely a Perthshire (Scotland) PP 4 concentric weight,
some have a P signature cane in the outer row,
made over a long period until ca. 1992,

hope this helps, cheers e.m.

many thanks Neil  -  so would appear cagney does have a bona fide piece of PYV from Reg. 183353 conforming to the creamer shape, but without the stars.         For future researchers, perhaps Fred might wish to add cagney's pix to the Board's archive linked to this Reg., and the Mods. might wish to incorporate the Registration No. into the subject heading now the matter is resolved.

Glass Paperweights / New Paperweight -- Murano ???????
« Last post by antiquerose123 on February 19, 2018, 08:53:49 AM »
Hello Gang:

Just got this on the weekend and the guy that sold it to me said it was American Glass maker -- I believed it to be murano.  But I thought I would grab it as it has some pink in it too -- and you know who I always see to fing pink Glass

The base does show quite a bit of wear.  Thank, any ideas on it?

Glass Paperweights / Re: Antique Millefiori Scramble Latticino Weight ID please
« Last post by brucebanner on February 19, 2018, 08:52:15 AM »
Yes I know about age wear, I have not found an old paperweight yet without some form of base wear, although I do not have that many. The ones i have over 100 years old that are in mint condition have a base wear ring, they get picked up and looked at repeatedly unless they have been left in a box in a loft.

I will keep looking though as I'm starting to collect old weights .
