More likely a bell. Looks reasonably modern, but clappers are often fixed with glue, so could have gone

It's too large for a candle snuffer, but I don't know whether glass snuffers would be practical anyway. Perhaps it's for keeping your boiled breakfast egg warm?  ;D

China's decorative glass did indeed follow the imitation route at first, but with the development of practice, the quality is getting better and better, and it also maintains a reasonable price.

Scandinavian Glass / Textured glass plate
« Last post by Mdux on Yesterday at 07:47:14 PM »
Any identification of this textured plate would be gratefully accepted. Closest I can find is Pukeburg water textured. This plate is not flat, it is more like a shallow bowl. It has a textured back, smooth surface on front. It has a yellow/gold tint in normal light.
Weight = 1kg 076g

No Idea about this item, is it a candle snuffer or other.
Nicely decorated with flowers and foliage , 14cm tall and 7.5cm dia.
No fixing for a bell inside.
many thanks

Maybe their bottle green wasn't uranium. It was just a thought
Glass / Re: signed black glass vase any clues on name?

In the glass association journal volume 10, they have a gray- stan  catalogue published.
As said before mainly coloured items but there is a range of glass called "all blue" which seems to be one colour.
I cant at the moment see which year the catalogue covers.
Hope this is of some use.

Thanks, Christine, I hadn't realised that. It's quite a dark green though, despite the photos. It just looks so much like the S&W bottle green of the thirties. If not, the vase could be earlier than I first thought. I doubt it's post-war, but I'm happy for someone to tell me otherwise.

IMO, if the period is correct I think you can rule out Webb, S&W and Richardson, as I would excpect them to be uranium glass. If the period is wrong, who knows
