Glass / John Ditchfield ? face wall plaque - SOLVED
« Last post by Sheilaglass on Today at 01:09:10 PM »
SOLVED - DITCHFIELD PLAQUE
Hi to anyone who tried to help me on this!

I eventually hit upon the idea of approaching Glasform (John Ditchfield's company) direct, and received a reply from Karen Ditchfield to say that the head wall plaque was definitely made by them.
Apparently very few of the paperweights had the drilled-out hole to hang, and she knew of one other that had been in the stock room, and imagined mine had been sold from there. However, as they were never sold online, and she could not remember ever having sold one, she told me that not many were made and so it's rare.
This is good news for me as I only paid £10 for it.

Thanks anyway to those who looked - I thought you'd like to know and the topic can be closed.
Best wishes
Sheila.

Glass / Glass Jug/Bottle that I deg up in the garden!
« Last post by warsashuk on Yesterday at 08:50:41 PM »
Hi there, Sorry to be a pain, as im sure you get lots of these random posts, but I have dug up this bottle in the garden, and a relative told me that there is a chance it is worth something / worth keeping?

Im sure it is probably not, but it would be amazing if anyone here could identify this bottle, even if its just so i know what it is and donate it to the local history society.

Thank you in advance.

Personally I would not know because at this time, la Belle Époque, style and trends were completely different, as i'm sure you know. In the Victorian Period everything had to be themed, so maybe it was a bit late in developing and following trends, but it did soon after, but I'm just guessing here.

If you like i can ask on a french forum and if you agree, i'll use the image above to illustrate.

So for reference here are several Gurnard Footed pieces from France.
Rear left a White Portieux Vallerysthal 3 Footed Lidded Bowl from c1900 ish.
Rear right a Le Blanc c1897 Flint 3 Footed handled basket.
At the front several Sars Poteries 3 Footed spill vases or toothpick holders c1885.

I wonder why Gurnard feet were so popular?
Regards Mike

Values are subjective so not something many here will commit themselves to as we are not appraisers.  It depends on the marketplace and who wants what you're selling on the day you sell it.
