No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

Hi and welcome to the board. I'm sorry that no-one has been able to help you so far, but I am sure it will be in our memories and if we see one labelled or in a catalogue we will respond. In the meanwhile thank you for being patient. :)

Nope, cos ID's belong in Glass, Keith. We will move it once it is determined to be Scandi, but the country forums are not primary ID forums. Sorry. :)

Would a kind moderator move this to the 'Scandi' section please, might get a hit or two,ta  ;D ;D
Can anyone help me identify this vase please, I have been trying for quite some time but have not managed to track down anything like it yet. Nice amber colour, it is 34.5cm tall, approx 6cm square at base, 7cm square at lip, it narrows to approx 4.5cm square in the centre. It weighs 964g.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.
What ever happened to Mr Mellish?

Spectator 3rd January 1852

Mr Mellish was found not guilty but suspicion of doubt was cast about that outcome. He was given the benefit of 'very great doubt'!!
So there you go - not guilty but maybe not really.

This link to the Official Catalogue of the Great Exhibition has more detailed explanation of what 'Varnish & Co' showed.  It described the items with the colours of some of the pieces.

No information on Mr Mellish in this version.

'Varnish & Co' were on page 701 as no 27.
