These really are stunning and special pieces, and just one small set existing makes them a bit of a rarity.

It's reminding me of the Bjorn Weckstrom foot goblets. I have one of them, the unsigned one. (I can't remember if there are a total of 5 or 6)
Robbo has all the others. He let me have the one I do because he's kind and it lacked a signature. ;)

Thanks Jonas, Gareth - I don't think I've ever run into birthdates on Swedish glass before, so I've learned something new.

They're definitely a fun series of vases, though. Will drop you an email shortly, Gareth.

Hi Sue!  ;D

I should also add that the first hone was uranium glass while the second was simply green glass, no uranium glow...

Just to add a little information from the two that I've had, the hone with registration details measures 68 x 51 x 28mm, while the one without measures 70 x 54 x 30mm.
Glass / Does anyone recognise the maker of this glass vase?
« Last post by seanduxbury on May 20, 2018, 08:08:51 AM »
Hi.  Hope someone can help.  I found this distinctive glass vase in North Yorkshire - as usual no signature or label, and despite much searching have not come up with any information (date, maker, etc) so am hoping someone might be able to id it.  Blue cased it looks hand worked and shaped with a distinctive hole through the object and a ground out polished pontil.  Measures 16.5 cm x 6 cm x 6 cm (H x W x D) and weighs 950 gm.  Any help much appreciated

Be patient please, not everyone visits everyday, it sometimes takes a while for the person who knows to come along. You may also get a better response if you add your images to the board directly as attachments, as many users dislike visiting off-board image storage. It also helps support the board as a repository of information in perpetuity. See here for more on posting images:,6522.0.html

Glass Paperweights / Re: Help with identification - thought it was Caithness.

According to the Charlton catalogue, amongst the many commissioned weights that Caithness made were two designs for Past Times - this and a very similar one, issued in 2000 for the Queen Mother's centenary.

Nobody has an idea? ???
