You're welcome.  :) I realise the stems are not an exact match, but hopefully someone else here can pin down the maker.

I've just never seen any IoWSG Verdala shapes other than Aurene ones. :-[
But I haven't paid nearly as much attention to any of the short-lived, (so-called) swirl ranges as you did, John. I only ever ended up with the odd bit of blue and pink because I'd found it cheap in charity shops, they were never deliberate purchases.
I bow to your vastly superior experience in this matter. ;D

Thank you so much Helen!  I ran and grabbed my copy of the book but the stems are different I think.  The ones on P 197 taper up to a thicker stem at the top. The ones in the Pina book look like they have a thicker base to the cup as well.  The cup shape is the same though so I'll research Denby Milnor!  Thanks so much.

Coloured, stemmed glasses of similar design appear in Fire & Sea (Pina & Vigier) on pp 196 and 197, attributed to "Denby Milnor" with the origin described as "Sweden". However, there is no further information on the company at the rear of the book, so I don't know if DM were/are makers or retailers.
Glass / Re: Is this textured cylinder vase Czech?

I've been busy googling pics of P&P vases, and while there is a definite family resemblance, my vase would be their rough and rustic cousin.  ;)

Glass / Hollow (Bubble) Stem Glass. Used For?
« Last post by Della on Today at 02:39:36 PM »
Hi  ;D
What would this have been used for? And when would it date to?
My first thought was a sweetmeat, but it is incredibly shallow.
Not a champagne, I would think, due to the edges.
Made in 3 parts with some clouding within the bubble stem. Ground and polished pontil scar.
97 mm high
100 mm diameter bowl which is roughly 20 mm deep

Can we see the whole vase please and photos of the rim and the base. Dimensions would be helpful too

Hi, trying to ID these wine glasses.  Anyone have any ideas?  They are definitely quality.
