Hi casalibre

As far as I know, he did not use canes made at Vasart, because he was working on his own then.

Have a look at Riihimaki Tamara Aladin 1361 vase on google images.
For some reason there were a few vases that carried an acid etched mark and engraved serial numbers.
Unfortunately i dont know if they all were signed.
Hope this is of some help.

Glass / Re: Fused sphere surface decoration query.

Thanks. I was looking at some of that the other day and should have remembered. That does look like the silver granulation technique.

I wonder, does the term Coraline apply to larger grades too? I was looking for something with a ball diameter of around 4 to 6mm, infilling a geometric panel. Coraline perfectly matches what I described but should have been more specific on size.

Iíll have a search but suspect Iíll just get the small grade stuff.

Glass / Stuart set: green/clear (1920-30)
« Last post by AlyB on Yesterday at 07:23:31 PM »
Hi all: I'm looking for more information on a decanter/glass set. It's definitely Stuart as the labels are still on the glasses, and it was most likely bought in Australia in the 1920s-1930s, from what I know. It could be earlier, but unlikely to be later (unless the story I have is completely false). I've done a google image search and just some general research into Stuart during this period, but not finding much.

Any help is welcomed!
Thanks,
AJ

Glass / Fused sphere surface decoration query.
« Last post by Ekimp on Yesterday at 05:43:34 PM »
In silversmithing, there is a technique called Granulation where small silver spheres are fused to a substrate like this: https://www.lot-art.com/auction-lots/Lois-Hill-Sterling-Silver-Granulation-Motif-Earrings-for-Non-Pierced-Ears/itmg712685-loi_hill_silver-28.8.20-ebth

Does anyone know anything about a similar process used in antique glass as a surface decoration (but not moulding for a similar effect) and what itís called or who might have used it - possibly France or Bohemia?

There is this for modern ďfused glassĒ. This sort of thing but thinking of something used on 19th century vessels to decorate panels.

Hello all you informative glass lovers

I am back again with my latest buy. I only bought it as I loved the shape but was intrigued by the pitted body of this vase.

As you can see by the pictures it is a hand blown vase with a crimped foot and a overturned drip lip. It has a rough unpolished pontil. The body is rough and pitted. I don't know if the pitting is intentional or if its been buried or some one has tried to age the vase? Either way I like it and reminds me of a Galle vase but I may be influenced by the colour and shape of this strange vase.

As always thank you in advance to any pointers - I have search and searched but not come up with a name of maker or age - It does "feel" antique or at lease vintage.

With best regards

Glass Amore

Gary
