Glass / Possible art deco bowl,help needed.
« Last post by essi on Today at 06:56:55 PM »
Picked this up today. It is 157mm high,306mm across the top and 116mm at the base and heavy.
The detail is very difficult to describe, the silver mica seems to more on the outer surface.
The method of manufacture I have no idea, is it a known technique?
The base ring has a green uv response.
I am stumped with this one.
Help needed,
Tim

Hello and welcome.  :)
We have plenty of techie help and info here;-
http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,34093.msg366621.html#new
to help with resizing images and posting them onto the board.
Images hosted elsewhere often vanish, leaving a thread with information, but no illustration to relate to it, which is a pain.
(And I won't click on external links myself, they can mess my pc up.)
If you do get stuck, yell and somebody will help. ;D
You could even click on the envelope beside my username, and following making contact, you could send me the images and I'll resize them for you.
Looking forward to seeing your glass. :)

This glass was my Grandmothers, although she was 98 when she passed away so it could be war time, Edwardian or earlier ( as has been mooted )

Itís 19.5cm tall and has a lovely crystal like ring to it.

Is it any particular style or for a particular wine

The Scotland's Glass web site agrees it's Jack Allan. There is no JA cane so does that mean it's a later one?

I think he designed the original. What you really want is one with a JA cane...

 :) I knew that too.  :-* ;)
It's a Jack Allen one, isn't it? Or is my memory playing silly tricks on me again?
