Post by: lyndhurst44 on March 30, 2006, 05:48:31 PM
Hi,
Picked up these two vases today wondered if any of wonderful people could ID them for me please? We have no Emoticon for scraper do we. :roll:  :lol:
Please escuse quality of photos, just a couple of quick snaps in fading light. I'm getting too impulsive for my own good. :twisted:  
The vase is heavy and about 6.5" tall. The other measures 5.5" at widest and 4.5" tall. Amerthyst with white/ cream opaque floor.

Thanks Marcus, much appreciated. It has a smooth impressed 1.5" pontil mark and I was hoping it might be Whitefriars. :lol:  

I am now convinced that the green blue vase is Bohemian, and the prettier one probably Murano although I have received an Email fom a very knowledgeable friend that it could well be unsigned 1960's Flygfors. Perhaps not the huge bargains that i first thought,  :cry: but when they are that cheap I have great difficulty in leaving them behind.
I'll still be out there bargain hunting tomorrow come rain or shine :P

Sorry for the delay in replying but I've been out hunting today, for bargains that is!! :lol:
Not a lot about but I think I found a Whitefriars ripple vase and a narrow Holmegaard smokey Gul vase and a few other non glass related items, so must'n't grumble. My friend found an old Loetz crackle glass water pitcher designed by Kolomon Moser, so he is really pleased.
Best Wishes,

Hi Marcus,
I will certainly ask him if he will but I know he likes to keep things close to his chest. He lives a long way away from me and I have had problems with downloading his photo's in the past. He was someone who won an item off me on Ebay some time ago and we have kept in touch. He really knows his Loetz. He emailed me earlier to report his find which he purchased for just £2.
Cheers,
Bryn

If he is unwilling, I'll post a trade catalogue image on GlassGallery, post the link here, and then would you please ask if he will have a look at it, and come back to you with a response?
TIA,
Marcus

Hi Marcus,
My friend replied this morning and will be sending me a photo of his Loetz "midweek" when he next lists on Ebay. But he is not really happy on me listing his photo's on this board. So if you can post your copy of the trade catalogue I will point out his piece providing it is there, of course.
I met this chap in a boot sale last year and amazingly discovered in chatting over glass, of course, that I had purchased a copy of George Savage's Glass and Glassware off him on Ebay a week earlier :shock:  
Amazing chance that, then recently again on Ebay he purchased a piece of Loetz Astfers of mine. I actually delivered it to him at the same bootsale I had purchased it from for just 50p, very nice and totally unexpected, £80 profit.
Since then we do Email each other enquiring or should that be bragging  :twisted: about our latest finds.
I did'n't know what I had in the Astfers, but he certainly did, along with a number of other bidders from across the Atlantic.

Bryn,
It is Astglas, a series of iridised craquele work from Loetz.
See Eddy Scheepers pages on Loetz decors.
Marcus

I am separating this to another thread as have had an interesting mail from Eddy.

Oops, yes it is Astglas :oops: Sorry :!:  :roll: Another "senior" moment methinks. No reply from my friend as yet Marcus.

Well Marcus, my friend or should that be ex friend seems to have taken "umbridge" at my disclosing his Loetz find as he has not returned any of my 5 emails sent over the last 5 days and has not reacted to your trade picture :oops: . Possibly there is just something wrong with his computer as I know he was having problems.
Sorry!

C'est pas grave, Bryn,

Thanks for trying. Just something rang a bell, and I wanted to push it along (see enigma jug thread).

Continued good hunting to you,

thanks again and regards,

Marcus

Hi Marcus,
Just had reply from my friend and he has attached a photo of his find and it is exactly the same as yours. The photo is not his but a reproduced photo of the jug standing alone. He also advised me to avoid similar jugs with unpolished bases as there are copies doing the rounds.

Cheers,
Bryn (not Brian)
