Hi Greg

From the canes and coloured twists I would say it was made by Vasart (the forerunners of Strathearn).

Glass Paperweights / Scottish Millefiori Glass Paperweight - Strathearn ?
« Last post by Greg. on June 15, 2018, 11:00:47 AM »
Scottish millefiori paperweight with green ground and fire polished base, is this a Strathearn example..?

Measures 7cm wide and around 4.7cm tall.

Many thanks,

I would love it, but E25.54 (cheapest) shipping on top just puts it way out of my purse.   :-[ :'(

Hi

Regarding the age of Old English, the Arculus and Walsh Walsh paperweights were made from the early 20th century through to 1939 (this includes the ones with the fake 1848 dates).  Richardson were making them around 1900 - 1914, and maybe much earlier.  Bacchus and Islington made a small number in the late 1840s - early 1850s.  But there are several other manufacturers whose names and dates of production are not as yet known.  Regarding fakes, I don't think anyone has faked an Old English paperweight for the sake of it: but there are the 1848 fake date ones, and there are plenty of mis-attributions by sellers, whether on eBay, at Fairs, or through antique shops.

Glass / Re: Greener than Green open salt, Meisenthal?? 1882

I have found similarities with a Blue piece on the https://www.pressglas-pavillon.de/index2.html
Site of a Meisenthal bowl pattern with ferns in blue but has the same rim pattern from 1882 but cannot find any catalogues, are there any catalogues from that era.

Thanks Mike
