Glass / Re: Unknown deep red glasses
« Last post by Paul S. on Today at 07:03:22 PM »
P.S. at the beginning  ........ ;)              I had already typed my reply before noticing the Moderator response, but have let my words stand without alteration.

regret I'm unable to post pix from books Mario  -  all such images are copyright, usually either the publisher or the author, and the GMB upholds strictly such legal arrangements, so hope you understand.         My guess would be that red tumbler shaped glasses, with straight sides and lacking individual identifying features, have been commonplace over the years, and even seeing the picture wouldn't necessarily provide confirmation that yours were Nuutajarvi.                 On the screen, unrelated pieces would show a degree of similarity that in my opinion might hinder more than help.
I've just looked on Abe Books, having assumed this volume and its companion might be affordable - unfortunately both seem to be holding their price well, and are not inexpensive, though if you collect Scandi glass then I'd suggest they're worth the money.  :)

The book is still in copyright, so unless permission is obtained from the publisher & the image's copyright owner, Board policy does not permit copies to be added here.

Board policy on use of copyright images and text is outlined in the thread: ADMIN: Using Copyright Material

Extra info:

Glass / Identify a centerpiece/plate of (probably?) Murano Glass
« Last post by matteo_ferri86 on Today at 06:34:48 PM »
Hello to everybody,
Iím Matteo, an italian guy from a city near Milan. Iím new on this Forum and this is my first request to all the users. I have in my house this really big (85cm of circumference, 10cm of height and 15kg of weight) and beatiful centerpiece/plate made of coloured glass. My family bought it in the early 90ís from an antique dealer in Forte dei Marmi (a really famous little city near the sea in Tuscany). Probably it is made by Murano glass, but there isnít any sign or mark on it, and probably it was made in the 20ís/30ís, because this kind of item looks like to the works of the Art Deco/Art Nouveau period. These are all the informations that my family tells to me. So, someone, kindly, could help me with other informations about the author/maker, the provenience/origin and the period of this object?

Hi Paul,
thanks very much for your reply on my search. Is it possible to post a picture from the page with the glass(es) from that book?

Indeed I expect something in the range from 50s-60s, for me indicating 'relatively old'. I've added two additional pictures, showing the difference in thickness of the bottom (not very good to see), which is also reflected by difference in weight (256, 229, 180 and 224 grams). Next to that, I also tried to make a picture of one of the intact rims showing not a smooth edge. This made me think of hand-blown glasses.
 
As you already indicated, these kind of glasses can also be made recently anywhere, e.g. China, India.

Best regards,
Mario
the Netherlands

thanks Mike  -  a sweet container seems quite likely  .............   "in Victorian times"  .......  well, that narrows it down then ;D ;D

Do you know if pix of the B.T. Rd. Nos. you mention might be of use on the Board's archive  -  I don't presently have them (they date to May 1907 so not Victorian), but if you think of use I can grab them next time I visit Kew.
