Hello and welcome.  :)

We have plenty of techie help and info. here:-

http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,34093.msg366621.html#new
to help you post your images directly to the board.
Images hosted elsewhere have a habit of disappearing and leaving us with a thread full of information, but nothing to indicate what the information is about.

(and my pc is ancient and all out of date, I don't click on strange links. Tinypic is strange, I'd worry.)

Hi Keith  -  I had thought it was a bowl - albeit an odd shape  -  do you think it's more likely to be a vase?

not texture  -  otherwise it would indeed be reptile skin, instead of glass ;D   .............  it does though remind me of the pattern of croc. or gator skin.            I'm with John too on his comments re iridescence and nouveau, but it's the round/ball shape of this one that IMHO has more relevance to deco than the sinuousy (?) and naturalistic leanings of nouveau  -  but then again I've been known to be wrong many times. ;D
Iridescence has a history, possibly longer than at first might be thought ............... it would be difficult to be adamant and say that more was produced in nouveau rather than the deco style - perhaps we associate more with the former though, for whatever reason.          Date wise you might trace it from c. 1890s through to c. 1940 - and think of all the Carnival that was made in the C20  -  so certainly covers both of the styles/periods that have been mentioned.

Scandinavian Glass / Help with engraver on large, old Orrefors vase please. ID = Simon Gate

The vase has heavy scratching on the foot ring. I can make out:

Orrefors <something> NS and then an 'X' in a circle.

The engraved scene is of a serenade. The vase is 14 inches tall.

Any thoughts? Thanks.

Is the surface pattern not a sort of reptile skin texture?
That would lead me in a Bohemian direction too.
John knows more than I do about this!

British & Irish Glass / Harbridge Crystal bowl
« Last post by Paul S. on February 16, 2018, 05:03:08 PM »
I seem rarely to show anything these days  -  probably because I rarely buy anything - but couldn't resist this piece from the charity shop today.
I was going to do one of Keith's quiz type posts, but doubt there's many who would have guessed the maker - I know I wouldn't have done until I saw the partial backstamp.
So, it's Harbridge Crystal Company, and despite their inception being c. 1924, the lack of wear and the rather staid cutting style, suggests it's more likely to have been made post WW II - so would imagine somewhere between 1945 and their closure mid 1950s, with a feeling it's toward the end of that period.                     The cut design lacks any pretence at what we might think of as deco or avant-garde style, but you get a lot of sand for your money - it rings noisily when flicked and should look good filled with tangerines for the few weeks I might keep it.

Murano & Italy Glass / Re: Murano Rooster Genuine?
« Last post by chopin-liszt on February 16, 2018, 04:18:04 PM »
It's not quite as amused as the first one shown is. ;)

I do have an image of a genuine Murano duck, although it is a particularly good one and a little unusual in that these ones were made for a restaurant which specialised in serving duck.
