Glass / Re: Can you help ID this for me please!?

Thank you! That's a great help. I think you are right in initials EJ... strange glass to be monogrammed but perhaps they had their own at the local hostelry  ;D

Hi,
possibly picasa simply doesn“t work any longer and doesn“t allow restore the links. I“ve tried to copy them
to google photos.
Here are the Schlevogt pictures:

And here are those from the cemetary in Kamenickż Šenov:

Let“s see if this works...

thanks - though I'm still unsure really as to which letters of the alphabet these are  -  possibly E J  -  but I'm still of the opinion that the font is of continental origin, and suspect you were correct with the suggestion of a shot glass - might this have been for schnapps, possibly?

Looking at the rim, it does appear to be flat - suggesting that after making the shape the rim was ground and polished flat  -  this in itself is a feature of continental rather than British glassware.
Unfortunately, beyond this I doubt that you will be able to find out any more - and as to date, my uneducated opinion is possibly second half C19.

Lack of wear on the base doesn't say anything about the age.  Some paperweights are in pristine condition after 120 years or longer.  Others show considerable wear.

Hi Dirk,

I can confirm that, for me, your picasa links give "page not found".

Murano & Italy Glass / Re: Archimede Seguso - Skiting!
« Last post by ardy on Yesterday at 09:02:24 PM »
BAD news everyone. It arrived and was the small version of this vase and the ad claimed it was 9" tall when it was actually 6 3/4" tall. I was very disappointed. Will let you know what happens.

Yes, 183353 would allude to a known shape they produced. 189121/2, I think is probably the actual pattern. Height to top of handle is 12.5 cm.

I was expecting some cheap Chinese piece but this is not. Well made and I have seen something with this blackface before but can't remember who or what.

Hi Anne,
do the album links work again now? I“ve changed the settings back to public, but
I“m not sure the changes have worked...
