Glass / Re: White studio glass vase with pink & green stripe, signed Paul M?????
« Last post by flying free on November 12, 2018, 01:19:08 PM »
It's Paul Barcroft I believe as I said above Rosie's post.
I have owned one piece of his glass.  It was immaculately made.  Absolutely beautiful.  The base finish and I think the signature on yours match.

Glass / Re: Louis Thompson glass scent bottle stopper problem

A way to stop stoppers sticking.  When all is ready just get a TINY amount of Vaseline and smear it over the stopper.  It will always release but if it got sticky it would dissolve with something like nail polish remover.

I don't recognise this as a Paul Miller signature.  I have very many pieces of his lovely glass all signed, and none of the signatures look like this one. 
I am sure that if you send a picture to Paul at Langham Glass House in Norfolk,  he will let you know if this is one of his pieces.
Good luck with your search.

Glass / Re: Red opaque overlay deep cut to clear graphic design - Bohemian Haida?

Nothing like that, I noticed that before looking at your pictures, the casing's much thicker on your vase and I think  this is emphasized by the fact that it is less transparent, if at all.

Glass / Is this a Lace makers light aid?
« Last post by Gibsonsy21 on November 12, 2018, 11:28:15 AM »
Good morning
I have recently found an interesting piece of glass at auction where it was listed as an oil lamp light magnifier.
Of baluster shape around 14cms tall and weighing nearly 1 kg, it is solid clear glass with a smooth top and what appears to be a ground base.
I have not been able to find anything like it on line, but it does resemble a lace makers flask
Any advice would be much appreciated, regards Keith Mallows

It's gorgeous.  I wonder if mine might be thicker all over?  If you look at the rim shot of mine you can see the width.  Is yours like that?

no,it's not you.  I do know what you mean. Perceptually it looks in photos as though it should be very weighty, but in the hand, it doesn't weigh anything like overlay crystal pieces.  Weight is hard to convey but I agree with you.  On mine the casing it opaque and solid looking but I still think it's very fine casing.

Glass / Re: cristal glass, dutch?

could we have a clear photo of the stem of one of the glasses please.
Is it facet cut around the bottom of the bowl i.e. are the 'grapes' facet cut?
