Glass / Re: Percival,Yates & Vickers creamer ca. 1865
« Last post by Paul S. on Yesterday at 06:54:48 PM »
hmmm -  the down side Cagney looks to be that on the original factory drawings - in Kew - for both 183352/3, there are large eight pointed stars around the midriff  - as shown on the drawing in Thompson, so  ...................   there is doubt.         Otherwise, I'd agree the shape and overall design appears to be identical  -  though I've no idea of the actual size.
Do we have any images of this Registration on the Board's pressed archive?          I'll post the Kew pix for both Registrations later - assuming Fred doesn't tell me we already have them :)

What is the height of this cream jug?

Glass / Can you help ID this for me please!?
« Last post by pebble on Yesterday at 06:53:08 PM »
Hello,
I'm very new here... just registered in the hope you might be able to help me ID this small shot glass, please? (or what I think is a shot glass). It came in a job lot at auction which I bought several years ago (in the UK) and have never been able to find out anything about it. It's very thick, grey, chunky glass which has been engraved with initials and has a very rough pontil mark on the bottom.
Any help much appreciated!
Thank you
Pebble

Phoenician with a snapped pontil mark is unusual, or am I just tired and can't remember any? Anthony Stern as maker?

Glass / Percival,Yates & Vickers creamer ca. 1865
« Last post by cagney on Yesterday at 06:33:05 PM »
Seems to correspond convincingly to design registered in august 1865. Jenny Thompsons book "The Identification of English Pressed Glass" page 47. Butter dish pictured plate 34 page 68.

What look like fissures in the glass body are actually the mold lines [ 3 of them ] spitting apart. I assume during working/reheating of the spout. Frosted appearance produced by acid fumes?. Exceedingly nice treatment of an otherwise plain pressed piece. Love the crimping on the applied handle. Ground and polished foot ring.

Bought in USA via eBay many, many years ago.

Glass / Re: Smokey Blue Squat Vase ID Help Please

hi Della  -  looks to be a tad too squat/low for Baxter's design  -  and the neck/opening appears wrong for Wedgwood  -  I have a vague feeling I'd seen something from LSA, possibly similar in shape?               Am sure someone can help you.

I'm being kind to myself. (but then you shouted pink at me! :P  ;) )
I've got unmarked Phoneician.
One thing I've noticed is that the patterns in Phoenician can often be split into two sections, top and bottom, with one colour/pattern predominating in each, in a way the other Maltese glassmakers don't.
And they very often used that neat enamel ribbing at the bottom that stretches up into the design.

Scandinavian Glass / Re: Help with engraver on large, old Orrefors vase please
« Last post by gj1 on Yesterday at 04:07:05 PM »
Perfect, thank you. I dismissed it being Romeo and Juliet because from memory he doesn't serenade her in the play. Also there's a modern Romeo and Juliet Orrefors vase.

Glass / Smokey Blue Squat Vase ID Help Please
« Last post by Della on Yesterday at 03:48:08 PM »
I am kicking myself and blaming ageing! I should know this, I do know this, but I can't dig it from the depths of my brain. So frustrating!  :'( I've searched the board, but having no luck.
So any help appreciated.
110mm high
140mm diameter
Quite heavy too, for its size.
TIA,
Della

See, now I thought Phoenician too,  :P Sue, but every piece I have had, or handled, has a flat polished base and is invariably signed.
Maybe this is just an exception to their norm  ???
Hopefully you are not too traumatised from popping in and seeing PINK!  ;D ;D ;D

I took a sharp intake of breath and steeled myself, Della.
I'd had my coffee. I was feeling brave.  ;D
And then it was a bit more fuchsia or cerise than baby pink, so it didn't scare me, too much. ;)

I very strongly suspect Phoenician. It's absolutely their style of decor and working of the colours, and the ratio of cylinder size, height to diameter, looks perfect. :)
