Glass / Re: Identifying a triangular Murano
« Last post by Nono on Today at 10:15:00 AM »

I've since discovered the label is by Ferro & Lazzarini from the mid 1950s.  I had seen a later label that shows their name with the word MURANO above it, but this one does not have their name.  It has the word GLASS on the left hand edge, the word MURANO across the bottom and there is an unidentified emblem (very small) on the right hand side.

Earthtones is often found on some of the mid 1970s shapes, as is Ming and Tortoiseshell, much like this:

Stopper is a replacement on this one:

Glass / Re: Ruby cut classical scene vase for show and thought's.
« Last post by glassobsessed on Today at 09:18:04 AM »
Chris showed me this vase yesterday and I would agree with cameo. In this case a combination of acid to remove the larger areas and cutting for the detail. I thought it fine quality work, the layer of red glass seemed quite deep in comparison to other cameo work I have handled, there is a wide and shallow polished pontil mark.

I too thought English a fair bet, from what I have seen it did not strike me as typically French or for that matter Bohemian, especially given the subject matter. Chris, do you have a copy of Hadjamach's 19thC British glass? Just thought it might be useful here.

Lovely vase!

Much better size picture, thank you Troy, and for highlighting the marks. It's not easy to make out what it is though, let's see what younger eyes than mine make of it.

Glass Paperweights / Re: Selkirk Glass 'Moonstone' PW
« Last post by Wuff on Yesterday at 08:34:44 PM »
I have seen one reference tentatively attributing 'Moonstone' to Peter Holmes. Can anyone make a definite attribution, please?
Unfortunately not: the early catalogues (like 1982) don't mention the designer. Consequently Peter Holmes is a very good bet, but I don't have proof/confirmation.
