Title: dessert dishes - ID = Stuart
Post by: singingyamada on December 02, 2011, 04:40:30 AM
Another punt at the oppie but based on
a. the clarity of the glass or they say crystal
b. the ping sound that would make a conductor weep it is so clear
c. the ? acid etched pattern
d. they have a decent weight.

Have I bought something of quality and retro or have I bought IKea 2011

Any ideas of the maker too.  thanks

A picture of a single dish side on against a plain dark background would help

Dear Glass helpers
you have before you a very embarrassed and red faced idiot.  When I bought them I looked at the base. I  couldn't see a thing. I decided to look at them again tonight with my glasses on.  It says Stuart England. Oh what a fool I feel.  Many apologies :spls:.

Funny thing , i was going to say take another look but didnt want to offend you , it often happens with Stuart marks , you just have to catch them in the right light . voila .

the tricky thing was that I usually feel for the marks as in holmegaard etc, but I felt nothing and didnt have the reading specs on.  And please state the bleeding obvious I will not be offended.  I go on our local ebay board and people say whats this and the first thing I say is have you googled it.  And the answer is no. I guess like a lot of people here I get stuck and then ask,.   :phew:

Hey you are not the first to do that and you won't be the last!  :kissy: 

As JP says, sometimes it depends on the light and the angle... I have a vase which I swore was unmarked for months and months... then one day I found a very very feint Webbb Corbett mark.  I'm sure the fairies snook in during the night and put it there because I'd searched for it loads of times and not seen it.  :-[

At least we know they are Stuart now.  :thup:

And my bet made on logic paid off, so I am getting some sense of glass.  :hiclp:
