Glass / Re: Antique 3 layer uranium glass encased jug ID please 😉
« Last post by keith on Today at 12:02:08 AM »
Can't say I've ever seen a rim like that, my first thought was Stevens & Williams, the second Walsh now I'm thinking Bohemian, such an odd looking piece, see what others have to say ;D ;D
Glass / Antique 3 layer uranium glass encased jug ID please 😉
« Last post by Ph on Yesterday at 11:43:20 PM »
Good evening,
I recently bought this pretty little but quite heavy jug on eBay. It has an internal layer of pink, middle layer of white milk glass and top layer of yellow uranium glass. It has intricately formed ruffeled rim, uranium handle and well polished pontil. It is only 5cm tall but weighs over 300g. I searched everywhere I could to find something similar but can't find anything! Any ideas? Is it English? Many thanks in advance!
This little duck of mine is also Ngwenya Glass.  It has the same label as the OP's, but on its base.

It's 3cm tall and 5.5cm long.  I also have one of their rhino's, but not sure which cabinet it's in atm.  ::)

Hi all. Would love someone to help ID this 6 1/2" tall vase. It is signed on the bottom with "VW 2014". Anyone recognize the initials or style? Thanks for any help!
Glass / Re: Registered Designs and Design Lookup Requests

yes, I agree with the date of July '34 - probably around the middle possibly.            It's absence from the Glass Association Blue Book is most likely for the usual reason that this item has been allocated to a different design CLASS - probably CLASS IV.
I shall be at Kew - for reasons other than glass next week - so will collect details of this Regn. assuming I can locate this one in the records. 

Is Ailurophile able to tell us how this particular design has surfaced  -  is it possible for us to see a picture of the piece?

It would be July 1934 but it's not in the Blue Book nor on the Great Glass number listing, so we'll need to wait for Paul.
