Glass / Re: Clear glass footed vase with prunts
« Last post by flying free on November 12, 2018, 07:42:17 AM »
It looks as though it has a 'folded rim'.
I would think not a glass but maybe a spoon holder or a vase of some sort?
Looks maybe 1880s 1890s in style to me.
It's a lovely design.  Very crisp and architectural in it's own way.

For some reason the colour and the design make me think of Saloman Reich as the maker of the glass.
Might be an avenue worth exploring?

I don't think the lettering is Victorian by the way.  It's highly stylised in a beautiful way and done beautifully, but doesn't make me think Victorian when I look at it.

Terrific, thank you very much for the direction, John. I'm off to research on Metelak, and will see what I can find!

It is similar to some of the vases designed by Milan Metelák for the Harrach (Harrachov) factory. The type of base is seen in items from a number of Czechoslovakian factories including Harrach. The pattern of bubbles - elongated near the top - is seen in some Metelák vases.

Glass / Help with ID Antique Custom Engraved Black Glass Vase Paden City?
« Last post by salsor on November 11, 2018, 09:40:23 PM »
This is a 12" tall black glass vase, deeply engraved with abstract flowers and foliage. It is custom engraved with a name in Victorian style lettering. It is confusing because the design seems more Art Deco style while the lettering is more Victorian style. The base color of the black is difficult to see. It appears as a reddish amber color. The bottom is convex. The glass is thick.

What did the trick?
The wooden spoon I forgot to mention for the gentle tapping?

 8) Another trick for looking after PBs;-

If you've washed one and want to get it dry, put a rolled-up "wick" of kitchen roll into it and leave it to sit, preferrably safely propped upside down.
(I normally give a final rinse with a little distilled water, but I keep that in the house anyway, I have carniverous plants that need it.)

Any water inside that evapourates will go to the kitchen roll because it's absorbent.
A distilled water final rinse will get rid of any water that does contain anything to leave as a deposit.
Just tear the kitchen roll into a width that will go into the hole easily after rolling it up a bit. :)

Glass / Controlled bubble amber vase - Scandinavian?
« Last post by AndreaA1 on November 11, 2018, 06:19:51 PM »
I picked up this lovely little item at a local thrift, thinking it quite reminiscent of Gunnel Nyman. The difference is that the bubbles stretch out as they move towards the top, rather than remaining pin pricks.

I don't know what the other alternatives may be. Other Scandinavian or maybe German?

It measures 6 1/2" (16cm) high x 2 1/2" at the widest point. The base is ground flat and polished.

I will endeavour to upload the photos as attachments, but I'm having difficulty getting both the pixel size and file size to within parameters.
