I shall take solace and comfort from the knowledge that I met Fritz Akerboom once, in a very small gathering of the Scottish Glass Society, at a talk given by Jack Searle.

Glass Paperweights / French miniature ID

Hi,
 
Could anyone help me with this weight id.
I think the design is Saint Louis but the pastel colours seem clichy.
Diameter 4,6 cm.     
Many thanks.

Marc.

British & Irish Glass / Re: Would this be a Richard Price piece ?

Hi Kevin

Thank you for your reply, it was a thread on here that I read started by Beasoriginals ref Siddy Langley paperweight. dated 2017.

I was just asking as the piece I was interested in was dated 1996 and fell into the dates in the message below. Part copy of thread below.


Mystery solved! Siddy Langley just emailed this reply

This was made in my Maidenhead Studio which I left to move to Devon in 1997. I used to sign my own work Siddy Langley and the date. When I was pregnant in 1992 I took on someone called Richard Price who would make things to my design. To start with anything he made to my design was signed Alchemy Glass so that people knew I had designed it, it was made in my studio but had not been made by my own (fair!) hand. However, there was a reluctance from the Galleries to stock work which didnít have the Siddy Langley name on it so I compromised and still signed work physically made by me Siddy Langley but pieces made (to my design) by others was signed Siddy Langley Glass, the makers initials and the date. RP on this piece refers to Richard Price. He joined me in 1992 and stayed on until my Maidenhead studio closed in 1997.

Thank you
Louise

Hi John,

I have emailed Salviati for info about this (assuming they have some sort of archives etc) - but not really expecting a reply ... will info you if I ever get one..

As for the glass....definitely keeping it... only place it is going is onto a very secure shelf..

thanks again

Paul

Similar have been for sale here recently in TK Maxx, how is the base finished? A photo would be useful.

No idea what Salviati's policy would have been when it came to seconds or damaged items. I sold my only crystal ball on the weekend so can't answer your second question either! :D

If I had owned it and broken the top off I would have had it ground and polished in the same way, it is still a fine piece of glass, given finding another would be very hard and likely cost thousands I think it would be well worth keeping.
