Glass / Re: Scandinavian Ryd goblet or other ?
« Last post by SveziaJonas on Today at 08:14:25 AM »
Hello Scott,

Normaly I think the RYD vases are white inside.
If it is Swedish I think more that Monica Bratt for Reijmyre is closer.
But I don't find this shape at all.
Maybe you have more luck...:)
It is her colors too.

Murano & Italy Glass / Re: Venini with Hardy Lido label but no etched mark
« Last post by ardy on Today at 07:16:50 AM »
Your right about it being a minefield. There is a company making copies of Archimede Seguso's larger pieces that are well above Chinese but not as good as originals and a couple of guys asking big money for an average to poor copy.

The only thing you can do is exactly as you are, be ultra cautious, if it looks to be very well made, as yours appears to be, you have to be happy with that, assuming you did not pay a lot for it. You can drive yourself crazy trying to get a clear id on some of this glass.
Murano & Italy Glass / Upgrading my Collection - ER! NO....
« Last post by ardy on Today at 07:05:04 AM »
I sold my house and moved into a new one and have a couple of shekels left over so I thought I would upgrade my collection.

I was really looking forward to it but so far it has been an abysmal failure. There are very few good bits of A.Seguso (only one I collect) out there and lots of the basic stuff. So here I am looking at the internet and hoping to stumble on a good piece and nothing, nada, zilch!

THere is a serious piece on ebay, nastro richiamato vase but when you read the description there are several issues with it and at a price beyond my pocket and close to full price (IMBook).

So far in 8 months I have bought a couple of lesser pieces and sold nothing of my collection.

Anyone else hit this problem or am I the only one with a hole in their pocket?
Murano & Italy Glass / Re: Murano... But WHAT is it?
« Last post by ardy on Today at 06:52:29 AM »
It's Murano but a generic piece based on the numbers we see on the internet. You can look up the label on the top of this page.

Very hard to ID who made it.

Iíd love to think it was and I can see the similarities, but Iím not sure whether the base (bottoms)
are the same.
What do you think?

Thereís a labelled Ryd ( Aseptic on the side) with a similar colour ( ruby red ? ) which looks a bit like
mine, although itís not a goblet and I canít see the bottom of its base.

I did find a labelled Ryd online with a similar sort of base - but of course I canít find it now -
itís vanished !  :)

British & Irish Glass / Re: Stuart Peacock vase
« Last post by keith on Yesterday at 10:56:35 PM »
Ta, here's a few you might like, last trip to the Red House Cone museum.... ;D
I think I remembered wrong about the flat polished base  :-[  there are lots of Czechoslovakian pieces with flat polished bases - sorry.
It reminds me of a torso.
I've just had a quick look through some books and couldn't see anything that looked similar.
But it looks like a very good quality piece, and signed,  so we will find the maker ... one day :D
