Glass / 19th century flint glass celery probably English
« Last post by jimeapg on Yesterday at 09:19:49 PM »
I collect celery vases and bought a few recently.  I am fairly certain that this one is English but have not started research yet.  Someone suggested I post here.
Flint glass.
3 repeating motifs of holly and 2 other plans.
No markings anywhere.
Thank you!
Glass / Cased Glass Vase ID
« Last post by The Glass Staircase on Yesterday at 06:51:39 PM »
Hi All,

I bought a spiral moulded cased lead glass vase with amethyst trail the other day in a charity shop as it looked rather promising but I've not been able to find a possible maker yet.
It has a ground out and polished concave pontil on base with lots of bubbles and dirt inside the glass and metal is rather grey-ish.

It measures 11 inches high and 5 inches diameter.

As always any input greatly appreciated!
Hi All
I believe these bud vases to be bohemian but have not come across this design before.  They are height 10"  Diameter base 3.5" and top 1 3/4".  They have four claw feet each foot having three claws these are raised and the raised parts run up to the top of the vase.  There are blue trails to the base then up from there small oval wheel cuts running upto the top the oval cuts are all perfectly horizontal to each other.  The top is flat cut and the rest is bevelled cut downwards.  Date I feel circa 1900.  Nicely made but both are handblown so the blue trails are slightly different.  There not lead crystal to light.
Put some pics on.
Any info much appreciated.
Cheers Chris
Glass / Machine engrave drummers?
« Last post by bat20 on Yesterday at 12:18:48 PM »
Hi,I have a couple of machine engrave rummers ,probably early 20th or late 19 century.They have polished pontils and a very nice long ring,can the makers be identified from the engraving or did a lot of people use the same patterns?.I should add the resizing has made them appear more squat than they are,many thanks.

Hi all,picked this lampshade up the other day and wondered if anyone here knows much about them,it's very thin blown glass with a brittle ring and a Opaline blue but without yellow straw couloir you would associate with Walsh say.I'm guessing it could be late 19 century?,many thanks.
