Glass / Re: Signed blue glass bowl
« Last post by Ben.unwin on November 19, 2017, 01:50:06 PM »
Ah, yes! It seems so obvious now!!
What does it mean when there are 2 signatures on the one piece?
Did they both make it together or did one advise the other?

Glass Paperweights / Your thoughts on what will appreciate in value?
« Last post by Macapuno on November 19, 2017, 01:33:01 PM »
Hello good folks on this board, I'm curious to know what styles of paperweight, or makers, you think will appreciate in value in the future? Also, are young people getting into collecting? Or people in different countries? Just interested on your take on the 'scene'!
Thanks.

Thanks for that, Sue  :-*
I have only ever seen photos of Morven, so find it very hard to judge.

Yes, it was fabulous to see you again! It was also great to see Christine, Leni, David, Rob & Patricia (great to speak Dutch again! It's been a while).
I was totally blown away by Jonathan Harris' work, so wish I could afford a piece! And what a lovely gent too.
We will definitely go to the next one. Iain had a ball too!

I'm surprised we don't have 'Villiers' on the Board's picture archive  -  but suspect we may now be about to put that right :)

This catalogue doesn't show your design but it may help with deciding what is what http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/thumbnails.php?album=938&page=1

France / Re: d'Avesn poissons vase - modern or old?
« Last post by Anne Tique on November 19, 2017, 10:55:10 AM »
I guess a signature always helps, no matter what it is but a piece can never be judged on just its signature. As far as i know later designs were not signed by d'Avesn, simply because he never worked in his own name again. Maybe I have missed something but I don't think there's a book on just his works/life.

Hi - welcome to the GMB.               Just had a look at the Replacements.com (States) site for glass, and they show 'Oleta' - very attractive - and it looks to be the same as the cut design we call simply 'Villiers' - and that looks to be confirmed in my Miller's who say simply 'Villiers'.
Presumably there may well be some difference that I'm not aware of, so look forward to your pix and any info. to clarify the naming.   Perhaps correctly it's always been 'Villiers Oleta', and for ease it became a habit to shorten the name.             I wonder if the word Oleta has any particular meaning.
According to the Andy McConnell Miller's '20th- CENTURY GLASS' book, apparently it's a design that started life c. 1930  -  you probably already know that.

The Replacements.com site usually shows a few individual named shapes for different types of booze - but may well not include all variations.

I knew I  had seen this bowl somewhere ...

This one is signed BVB, apparently it stands for Beauce Verreries Bourgogne.
