Glass / Re: Lamp information please

I can't add anything, but I'd happily give them house room.
I think the reproductions can be very attractive. They give you the look and ambiance without the horrendous expense and being terrified of using them properly.
And I like mushrooms. Especially glass ones.  ;D

Glass / Help Identifying Swedish Crystal
« Last post by Keith K on Today at 12:46:34 PM »
Please help identifying my recent purchase of Swedish Crystal. Owner say it was purchased in Sweden in 1969 and came as a four piece set.Looks like a barware set of a shot glass, cordial, wine and beer/water?
Photo is the beer/water and is 7 inches tall with a 3 inch diameter. Bottom as signature that looks like a stylized E and lower case m.
Thanks Keith

Definitely the same jug, different colour, Fred.  Thanks  ;D
Does anyone have an idea as to date, or an idea where I can search?

I think I can answer my own question:  Louis XV pattern 7349 shown in the 1933 catalogue from the Portieux factory.

 In corroboration with John's ID, there is an opaque turquoise example of Della's creamer attributed to Portieux in the 'Milk + Sugar' section of Pamela's website at http://www.pressglas-pavillon.de/index2.html

Sowerby certainly produced glassware in a similar (though not necessarily identical) pale green opalescent non-uranium glass from their designs of the late 1870s, but Della's creamer (with that quite distinctive handle) does not appear in any of the extant early Sowerby pattern books.

Could quite easily be continental or even American glassware.

Always thought this design was Portieux, there are currently a couple on ebay described as such.

Thanks, Sue  ;D
With your tip, I have now found a piece in the same colour,similar pattern, listed as being in the Sowerby 1882 in Opal Green.
Can't find my jug, but all the pages won't load for me.  :'(
