Hi Fred  -  welcome to the GMB. :)          regret to say we don't provide values on this forum  -  appreciate you guys on the other side of the pond do so frequently, and as a matter of course, but this side we consider that ideas as to value are too variable and unreliable, and would suggest you look at auction sites to locate similar pieces with which to arrive at some indication of value.               The reason for this approach is that valuations are subject to much personal opinion and current fashion  -  we are not professional in the assessment of antiques, and our discussions are confined to intrinsic, and not monetary interest.

Hopefully someone here will be able to help perhaps regarding an attribution or provenance, but in the meantime a couple of questions.                Is the threading actually glass rather than created using enamelling.               Where the leaves are showing, has the threading been removed, or might it have been masked off in this area.
It's an attractive and unusual shaped vase  - was this an estate purchase from within the States?

Hi Paul Thanks for the post. Is there any way to tell the difference between glass and enamel stripping ? it appears that the leaves were masked off and done after the white. There are some very fine bubbles in white. I acquired it from a dealer that bought a tractor trailer full of antiques from Pennsylvania.Hope someone can identify the maker. Regards Fred

Here is a Pink Spattered or Rose mottled-ground doughnut paperweight with five-bubbles in bullicante (controlled bubble) style in which is encircled a functional art glass pen holding orb. (see photo).

The base has light but appropriate use consistent with its age.

Glass / Fused art glass bowls... same studio?
« Last post by justjeff on Today at 05:56:19 AM »
Here's another request for ID on some art glass bowls. I suspect these are from the same studio... they were found in the same location and have similar styles. The first piece (green and yellow bowl) has some very nice controlled bubbles. I can't make much from the artists' signatures however. Anyone recognize these?

PS: I know it's not much to work with but these were the best photos I could take of the signatures.
