How's this for an insane coincidence. I was looking through some ephemera newly acquired today, and here is your salt I very much suspect. This is from an 1890s H Samuel advertising booklet.

Hello and welcome.  :)
I think you're on the right track. There have been pieces of Japanese glass that do seem to be very "Scandi" inspired, particularly Per Lutken's Carnaby series of things, with white liners.
I have seen quite a few, but haven't found the name of the manufacturer myself. I think you might have to wait until somebody who knows more about it than i do comes along.
I think the Japanese ones can be slightly wonky and flawed compared to the originals, but the important thing is the correct shape.
It's a nice thing. I like it. :)

These are relatively modern (21st C) and are made on mainland Italy, possibly in the Naples area. The label is a deceptive one, not a genuine Murano one. Enjoy it as a decorative item and a memento of your grandmother

Any information would be greatly appreciated. Left to me by my grandmother. Just over 19 inches long, tip to tip

I would suspect it is Schindler & Co. When I was at the National Archives earlier this year, I happened to view a few of their registrations in passing, all from 1890
158804 - an ink with lid
158841 - small jar minus lid
158967 - another ink

All show the twisty pattern on your salt, though it is continuous and not broken up with clear sections.

Hi, welcome to the forum, bad luck on your breakage. It looks like the mark is for Theresienthal, see this topic:,45638.msg

Youíre probably best searching for replacements on eBay and the like. I couldnít see a match for the pattern on the replacements website
Your 25 cm. Baccarat slippers are huge, for a candy container 10 cm would be standard.  These were filled with a small bag of coloured puffed rice or similar - more an ornament than packaging. I am sure the key word will google you to the US collectors sites.
Hi guys!

Anyone around who can tell me who made this one?
Height is 9cm.

Glass / Wedding crystal disaster !
« Last post by AndyH on December 01, 2023, 12:34:38 PM »
Newbie Andy here - hoping this is a relatively straightforward ID request given I'm tapping into such a wealth of knowledge.

Following a cabinet shelf disaster and glass breakage x 4 (!) I am trying to identify glass manufacturer - photo of wine glass and logo attached.   Frustratingly I haven't been able to track down the crown type logo despite extensive searching.

NB The wine glass is part of a large crystal set purchased from Selfridges in London in 1998 (wedding list).

Any assistance in identifying the manufacturer would be hugely appreciated.  Even better would be guidance on the glass range/style ..... and suggestions on best way to go about sourcing replacements.

Many thanks and regards,  AndyH

Hello - I recently came across this vase, which has a Scandi look to it, but no exact matches of any kind. I have tried a Scandinavian group of collectors, who rejected it as modern decor. That could very well be true, especially considering the rim, but the base has a Japanese look to it too, so I thought I would ask the experts here to see if that is a possibility? It is approx 35cms tall. Many thanks
