Glass / Re: Commemorative Victoria and Albert Handled glass
« Last post by Anne Tique on December 05, 2018, 12:25:24 PM »
The mark is letter "E" of Ehrenfeld Cologne, I believe.
I've got several of these, some are marked, some not. We do need Ivo's expertise in this case, he knows these glasses being of Dutch origin as well.
Ivo, please please!  :-*

While he's absent … I'm not pretending I know what I'm talking about but it didn't take much to find … mustard pots with the portrait of queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands.

Oooh. Thanks Pamela that’s an interesting surprise, I shall investigate further. Two faces below are a lady with Tiara and a young man with medals another one which we don’t have is a bearded man.
Have you any idea who the faces belong to?
Thanks

this one says it is Mont Joye (no comment in the sale blurb on whether it is marked though !) but it is the shape I was thinking of?
https://www.cottoneauctions.com/lots/36943/mont-joye-vase-with-painted-enameled-chrysanthemums

this advert shows the shape,or similar in the Legras book possibly?
https://www.tweedehands.nl/antiek-kunst/antiek/glaswerk-kristal/antieke-art-nouveau-montjoye-legras-320403407.html


Both vases are made by Legras and are the same model, vase 'Olga'.

Just for the occasion …. It's a bit confusing but Legras was absorbed by Souchon-Neuvesel  and they were part of the 'Verreries de Saint-Denis et de Pantin réunis'.
Auguste Heilgenstein collaborated between 1926 and 1931 with S-N and created a series of thick glass items, often coloured with enamel powders and acid cut. A small production, rarely signed by his own name (Heiligenstein) that was given the name 'Montjoye et SD', signed often by diamond point or gold paint.

Montjoye often does use long petaled chrysanthemums in their decor, much more than Legras, but in both cases the enamel is much thicker. The enamel of the vase in question is much thinner. Landscapes at either production are very often acid cut or transfer printed before applying enamel powders (Delft series).


Of course the decor of the vase in question is completely different, but i'm only trying to point out the difference of the enamel and in any case,  this shape is not unique to either Legras or Montjoye. The gilding on the rim at Legras and Montjoye is always powdered (putoisé) which clearly here, is not the case.


Having said all of that, I couldn't tell who has made this vase. I only have a few examples  of Heckert in Das Böhmische Glas, and the decor on the vase in question looks a bit less 'neat'.

Nothing like this in the Heckert book by F. Zelasco.

Pictures of my lamps are not the best.  I took them with the sun shining on them.  I'll take a better one if needed.  Picture of vase was on a web site I visited.  Look very similar to me.  thanks

Germany / WMF IKORA glass lamps
« Last post by wivrrat on December 04, 2018, 11:39:06 PM »
New to forum.  I posted once but it didn't take.  I have a pair of table lamps I would like further info on.  I have had them a year and have displayed them for sale at a vintage flea market in Palm Springs, Ca. on two occasions.  I had them priced at $300.00 for the pair.  Last season a couple antique dealers thought they were Murano and that I should raise the price.  So I changed the price to $700.00.  This past Sunday I sold again and a gentleman informed me they were not Murano but they were WMF Ikora.  When I got home I did some research and sure enough, they look like WMF.  I found one vase that is very similar.  I will post that picture along with pictures of the lamps.  In my research, I found many lamps but none with wood tops & bottoms.  The wood looks like rose wood.  The lamps are in excellent condition other than some ware on the top of the wood.  Would appreciate any feedback as to date.  I'm guessing 1930's or earlier per info I've read?  Also would like a value.  Thanking you in advance.
