No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

As Paul says difficult to see, check the edge of the foot, usually where it's most worn, the last piece I found all that was left was a faded ..LSH, Great find  ;D

I have no idea Chris, Glen is the carnival queen so she'd be the one to ask that question of.    8)

14 years is probably getting on for a record, but we never close discussion topics like this as there is always something new to add. It was one of my earliest posts on the board, way back when I was a new kid on the block!  I still have my pink drape vase too. ;D

Glass / Sommerso goose
« Last post by MichaelB on Yesterday at 10:45:27 PM »
I recently acquired a goose figurine as shown in the photos.  It has a dark brown neck and the body and casing around the neck is of uranium glass.  It stands 23cm high, is 31cm long and 8.5cm in width.  It weighs 2280g.  The dealer who sold it to me thought it was of Czech origin, possibly from Zelezny Brod.  I think he was thinking of Miloslav Janku's work.  But I am wondering if this is a piece by Archimede Seguso although the goose does not have the feet that Seguso often added to his birds.  There are no marks of any sort on the glass other than normal wear and tear to the base.  Any thoughts that you might have on the matter will be most gratefully received.

yes thanks Sid, Fred.
Your help is Appreciated.

I've now placed this on eBay as mentioned before we are reducing our collection and don't have much of this line.

Cheers Mike
I just realised this post is coming up to 14 years old, is that a record?.

According to Charles Hajdamach it's called "rainbo lustre" he is missing the W could be a typing error?.

looks like the Walsh 'Water lily, Iris and Bulrush' pattern to me Chris  - very good find  -  could very well be marked, but not an easy backstamp to find.
Glass / Green waterlily uranium glass vase.
« Last post by brucebanner on Yesterday at 09:53:16 PM »
Really well made vase this one and has a Webbs look to it, as usual not signed and has been saved from the bin with an old repair to the foot neck, the foot looks like it has been off at some point, glows bright under UV.

10 inches in height, 4 inches across the rim and 4 1/2 inches across the base.

Impossible to take a good enough picture of the base which has a polished pontil

Any thought's welcome regards Chris.

Very nice - I do like the variations that opalescent glass can give.
