Looks like Walther Bolero to me, but I might be wrong.

Murano & Italy Glass / Possible Archimede Seguso lobed Vase?
« Last post by LEGSY on Today at 06:04:40 PM »
 ???
Having looked around online at the often conflicting evidence i thought i would see if anybody thought that this vase maybe by Seguso, I am Basing my thought's around a similar vase with a very similar worked base and the foot was same shape not much other than this, I have had similar vases but none as well made as this one.
The size is:
Height:12"
width:5"
weight:2.5kg

It's kind of fascinating. The texture in the windows makes me think of the "confessional booth". A bit creepy. I love it.  There might be a "sinner" trapped inside it, forever! ;D

A few years late but hopefully still of interest Angela, the lamp still has the X shaped fitting shown in Pressglas Korrespondenz:

http://www.pressglas-korrespondenz.de/aktuelles/pdf/pk-2006-2w-exner-lampe-bubikopf.pdf

She also has "REGISTERED 749772 FOREIGN" on the base, the lamp has no mark at all. It looks great lit, gonna replace the flex with something a bit more in keeping...

Pure coincidence that I've just seen them,  I could not have told you who made them otherwise.

Hello,

I just came across an image of  this set in 'The Beauty of Modern Glass' and if I'm not mistaken, it's called 'The Gilbey Glasses'.

Love the Gothic design - and beautifully detailed moulding and pressing for such an early press-moulded piece.

Glass / Swedish? Glasses For ID help, Please

This post is on behalf of someone else, who has asked for them to be identified. The photo's are theirs and permission has been granted to post here.
They are believed to be Swedish and purchased at Harrods, or Selfridges
The tumbler is 100mm high and 88mm diameter.
The larger goblet is 142 64.
The smallest liqueur glass is 95 49
They are hand blown and their are slight variations in height because of this. The foot seems quite distinctive, so I'm hoping that someone will recognise them.

TIA.
Della
