Glass / Re: signed black glass vase any clues on name?
« Last post by essi on Today at 05:44:26 PM »
In the glass association journal volume 10, they have a gray- stan  catalogue published.
As said before mainly coloured items but there is a range of glass called "all blue" which seems to be one colour.
I cant at the moment see which year the catalogue covers.
Hope this is of some use.

Thanks, Christine, I hadn't realised that. It's quite a dark green though, despite the photos. It just looks so much like the S&W bottle green of the thirties. If not, the vase could be earlier than I first thought. I doubt it's post-war, but I'm happy for someone to tell me otherwise.

IMO, if the period is correct I think you can rule out Webb, S&W and Richardson, as I would excpect them to be uranium glass. If the period is wrong, who knows

Hi kevin,

Thanks for the reply. I think Iím on the right track now.

Thanks, Keith. I take it you don't think it fits in with S&W production? Once again, I bow to your extensive knowledge here. ;D

I don't have a lot of information about Stuart in this period, apart from the Hajdamach and Dodsworth 20thC books. Is there anything else I could be reading?

I did say similar Sue not identical.  If you look here - https://www.google.com.au/search?q=Koru+Glass+Sculpture&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwi97sWMmdbdAhXYF4gKHQ96CqQQsAR6BAgGEAE&biw=1701&bih=935  -at the end of the first row here you will get a sense of what I meant.  Originally the Koru would have been carved from greenstone in most cases.
