Are they not what are called Pokals?
I can't help with anything else, old, clear and cut is not my area.

I saw a pair virtually identical to these in a shop in Honiton, Devon, UK. The seller thought they were probably Irish, 1850 or earlier, but wasn't sure either!

Scandinavian Glass / Re: Orrefors vase
« Last post by Sara3462 on Today at 12:32:19 PM »
Christine, thank you.
I have since found a pattern attributed to Edvin Ohrstrom called Waterfall. The vases that I have found in this pattern are all 7 1/4 inch H. Mine is 9 1/2 inch H. I think I'm more confused now.
Thank you again for the help.

Malta Glass / Re: Earthtones at Mdina and MDG; Discussion.

I have been very kindly provided with an image of the base of the Isle of Wight Studio Glass globe in Tortoiseshell (the same design as Mdina Earthtones), with the Michael Harris signature and the coachbolt pontil mark which proves it was made in late '73.

It would still be good to know the date Mdina stopped using milk bottle glass.

Scandinavian Glass / Re: Orrefors vase

I don't think these marks are signatures, more product codes, so the similarity of the writing is irrelevant because they weren't done by the designer

Glass / Re: Mystery plate - celebrating 50 years? Of what?
« Last post by neilh on Today at 11:31:48 AM »
It does seem to be a celebration of industry of some sort.

I did consider the British Chamber of Commerce and looking up their history, it's quite old, going back to the 19th century when it was known as the Association of British Chamber of Commerce, or ABCC - so that's close but not quite correct. Likely to be something in that ballpark though.

Thank you John. I think you're right. Although I can't find this vase or style attributed to hm I have found other pieces that are signed by him and the signature is quite close. I really appreciate you taking the time to help me. This is a housewarming gift for my niece.
Thank you again,
Sara
