Glass / Need help identifying these pieces.....7/20/2017
« Last post by tcountry627 on Today at 04:57:13 PM »
I purchased these pieces several years ago and  I have never been able to read the signature on them.  The first letter of the name looks to be a funky looking letter "T".  There's picture attached.....thanks....in advance.

Sincerely,
Troy Leong

We did not know much about Czech glass in 2006.  :)
It was around, but wasn't selling well. Nobody knew what it was.

Czech was my thought, but t I would be surprised if it wasn't said on the original post lol.

I might venture Czech as a suggestion for where to start?
It's really rather fabulous Anne. I do hope you'll find a maker now. ;D

Here you can say the tiny cracks on the surface, seen through a loupe...

Glass / Antique Blue Glass Set + Scent Bottle
« Last post by antonizz on Today at 10:12:44 AM »
Hi everybody!

I have received this glass set a couple of days ago.

I was wondering what kind of glass this is, and where it could have been made.
I think it's quite old, and could be opaline glass.

I'm thinking France or Bohemian.  Could be ca. 1850.
Maybe I'm far off.

Glass is not in perfect condition. It shows wear, couple of chips off here and there.
AND..  There's a structure of 100.000 miniature cracks on the surface of the glass.

Maybe this is just age.

I really hope somebody can tell me more about this set.

More images.   :)
Just a quick recap -  18cm high x 14.5cm at its widest at the top, very heavy weighing 1.98kg. and the walls are 1cm thick.  Round at the bottom becoming oval towards top.
