Glass / Re: Help identifying producer.

Hello and welcome,

Would it be possible to show an image of the whole item please? Villeroy & Boch comes to mind with VB but it's just a guess, seeing the whole item might make all the difference.

No, I think a correction's needed here Mike Ö the moral of this story is you're cheap!  ;D

Sorry, couldn't help myself, the words just flap out at times  :-* just pulling your leg and I'm  kidding of course, i'm glad you got an excellent bargain and the perfect gift for your dad... Love stories like that.

Funny thing is, when this come on eBay the auction start price was £9.95, I really liked it and offered £35 my offer was refused and the seller wanted £55 which I refused. All week I was wishing I bought it and half way through the week went to make the offer of £55 but the "offer" option had been taken away as there were 10 watchers.
Nobody else placed a bid so I won it for £9.95... result. So a very happy bunny. And the moral of this story is a "Bird in the hand is better than two in the bush"..    ;D

Amazing it didn't get damaged and even more amazing how stupid some people can be! Glad it arrived ok, it's a very nice gift for your father.

I've seen the images in the links several times and always liked this piece. I guess it can still be used as a paper weight or just decorative item. Well done you!

Anne tique, thatís fantastic thanks again. I shall give this to my father to join his Derbyshire big cats. The article is great ( well the pictures are) canít read Word. Funnily enough I just found the monkey version on the Pres Glass Pavilion website.
This arrived in the post only wrapped in newspaper and a plastic bag. If it had been dropped it would have broken.
Thanks Mike

It's Baccarat or Reich, both 1880, described as a lioness, lovely piece even incomplete as you say. I don't know at this time how to say which house it is, as it's incomplete and the Baccarat pressed mark could have been underneath the box.

Glass / St Louis? Baccarat? Big cat trinket lid
« Last post by thewingedsphinx on Yesterday at 06:59:53 PM »
Couldnít resist putting a bid on this little beauty thinking it was a Manchester paperweight as it was listed as Derbyshire style etc etc.
Neilís Manchester team put me straight and said no itís probably a French St Louis Lynx Trinket lid. As it has a lip under the base.I cannot find any comparison but Baccarat figurines are similar. I donít disagree with Neilís team but this furry friend fluffy cheeks and a long tail like a snow leopard. Itís frosted body on a clear base. Any comments or pictures of the complete trinket box would be very welcome cheers Mike

Lovely to hear the update on the engraved vase. 
And I love the new red and blue vase - that's absolutely fabulous.
I think the cut might be referred to as 'lenses' or maybe 'lozenges' perhaps, but I would think of them as 'lenses'?

Thank you for the photos.
It's very pretty.  I don't know anything about Stamp boxes but I'm now interested to find out more (I do love boxes of all kinds though).

Hopefully someone with access to Baccarat info will come along to help you.
It can take time as not everyone visits daily so do keep an eye on any email responses you might get.
