Hi, could it be a Caithness second?
Hi.  Hope someone can help.  Found in the North West of England and despite much searching I've not been able to id the pattern on this glass bowl.  I think (but am happy to be corrected) that it could be by Bagley or Sowerby.  It measures 23 cm in diameter and is 10 cm deep and weighs 1500 gm.  If anyone can id it that would be much appreciated.  Thanks

A very kind lady has identified this bowl from the 1928 catalogue. A bit wonky from one angle !

I have this lovely Murano pheasant (about 6 inches tall)which carries initials that look like "C?G" (a curly 'C' then possibly a 'u' followed by a curly 'G' on the base that I cannot trace
Elsewhere I have seen an unsigned one attributed to Seguso yet I have also seen these nib like beaks attributed to Galliano Ferro
I have run out of ideas on research so would be very interested to hear if anyone knows or could give me an educated guess?
Thank you
I'm continuing on my quest to find out the makers of some of the glass we have in our glass cabinet.
I would like to know who and where these two were made and if poss when.
We have had these for a number of years, both were bought at different times and I have searched for them on the net and in my books over the years but have found no others like them.
The Cranberry Glass atomiser is 4 inch or 10 cms tall, it has no markings.
The Greeny Blue vase is 3.25 ins or 8 cms tall but has what I believe to be a continental hallmark ( see photo ).
Both have a thick Silver applied to the body of the glass.
Thanks in advance.

Hi Penelope,

Wonderful, thank you.

Lots of information there and all spot on. I'll have a look at the book too, nice plug  ;)

This could be quite addictive as I have quite a few pieces. Will post another later on today.

Thanks once again,

Yes your're right, it's the bit before that I can't make out, is it JT, JL, an A or a H? It certainly looks like a Schneider, but I can't find any with this mark.

Hi Antony,

It looks to me like a Czech Hermanova 'candle wax' vase no. 20245, designed by Frantisek Peceny in 1974, page 123 of Mark Hill's book Sklo.
Hi there Glassmessages and friends  :D

I'm pretty new to the glass world. Over the last year I have picked up several pieces from car boot sales and thrift stores. I picked this one up yesterday from a charity shop. It's around 25cm tall and has s good weight to it. If anyone can help me to identify it then that would be fab!

Hope to hear from you,
