Glass / A collection of Spanish Cirera Glass for Show
« Last post by mhgcgolfclub on Today at 03:22:53 PM »
I bought this collection of Cirera glass at a car boot. I know there are quite a few posts on Cirera and Royo glass on the GMB.

The tallest piece is 13" in height and signed Cirera , the 4 glases are all signed Cirera. The olive oil bottle is not signed that I can see.

Hi,
This is a great read and very useful information.......
 
Your fish vases are superb. Is it possible to let me know the prices of these ?

A private message to me would be great if you do not want the price made public.

Regards,

Patrick.

Glass / ID Please on beautiful Glass Vase.
« Last post by jove14 on Today at 01:38:46 PM »
Hi, All.
Sorry I haven't been on for a while ( lost my Dad along with other things going on ). :'(
We did manage to get out doors for a while and find this very beautiful glass vase at a charity shop last week.
I just love it!! But why can't they sign these glass works of art!!
I know its only mould blown but its just lovely.
I have loads of glass books, it isn't in any, I trawled the internet for the last three days and still no joy, nothing at all like it.
It measures 6.75ins,  17cms tall by 4.75ins,  12cms at the widest point and weighs in at 790g.
Its textured finish reminds me of Scandinavian glass houses but I must admit I am at a loss with this one.
We did find two other pieces of glass which I will put on soon as I don't know whose they are.
Thanks in advance for any help you can give.
Joe.

Thanks again Trevor.  Thanks also for the images, and background information. I totally agree it's a Gordon Studio piece. Kind regards, Barry

Hi.  Many of these badges originally attributed to Paul Ysart are actually Belgian.  It would be useful to see both profile and base images, but I suspect from the coarse spaced frit ground that this is actually a b
Belgian example.

To complete the story, here is a much clearer GS sig from roughly the same period (in Eileen G's hand) and a studio sticker on the base of a perfume bottle.

Hi Trevor, many thanks for your response.  I think you may be onto something here!  What I could see was a G with a W on the tail of it and once your head is set on what you think it is, it's hard to change your mind, but I can now see GS and my W is just a wavy end on the G.  The "94" to me were more initials (maybe DE) but it does have a 94 look to it when it's pointed out, as you have done.  Thanks again! Kind regards, Barry

I'm pretty sure that sig says GS for the Gordon Studio in Victoria, which these days is located at Red Hill on the Mornington Peninsula. So a little Aussie! They have a website:
http://www.gordonstudio.com.au/

They have made decorative mushroom paperweights, but don't expect to find a close match on the web site. It looks like the date on yours is 94, and lots change in 23 years.

What is interesting to me is the signature GS is not in Eileen Gordon's handwriting, which is the usual thing even on studio items made by someone else working there at the time.
