Glass / Machine engrave drummers?
« Last post by bat20 on Today at 12:18:48 PM »
Hi,I have a couple of machine engrave rummers ,probably early 20th or late 19 century.They have polished pontils and a very nice long ring,can the makers be identified from the engraving or did a lot of people use the same patterns?.I should add the resizing has made them appear more squat than they are,many thanks.
Glass / Opaline glass lampshade
« Last post by bat20 on Today at 11:47:20 AM »
Hi all,picked this lampshade up the other day and wondered if anyone here knows much about them,it's very thin blown glass with a brittle ring and a Opaline blue but without yellow straw couloir you would associate with Walsh say.I'm guessing it could be late 19 century?,many thanks.
Glass / inherited collection - ID please
« Last post by freaknick on Today at 11:25:03 AM »
Hello dear members,

I am new to this forum and I have 0,0 % experience in glass.
I would really appreciate your help!

I inherited a collection of (murano/czech/???) glass vases and glasses.
All labels were removed  :-\ . Two vases are signed by the maker/painter.

Some of the pieces are really fine decorated with enamel, gold and (oil?) paint.
Some glasses are crystal glass?

And the main question, is this collection valuable or is it crap?

If you know something about a particular piece, please repost the photo along with your information. (age, origin, value, ...)

All info is appreciated!!!

Thank you, Kenny

That would save a moderator from having to edit and work behind the scenes to get around the market place rule to transfer the information, which I agree is very useful Alastair.  :)

Mac... a plastic raincoat?
Why don't you just condense all the info in a new thread in paperweights without the for sale bit...
Glass / ID Required - Eric Hoglund Boda?
« Last post by jonnybrum on Today at 08:15:51 AM »
Can anyone help ID whether this piece is designed by Hoglund for Boda?  Sadly it isn't signed but it looks right apart having looked online I can't see any evidence for this particular shape.  Thanks

Thought Id post a pic of its surface.
Under magnification ( 10x )  ::) you can also see lots of small bubbles (seeds) and impurities.
Thanks for looking  :)

It looks to be from their Wild Garden Range, either Sweet Violets (purple) or Wild Rose (pink).
Your friend's teaching paid off. I still think you were clever and kind to pass on your knowledge. Have a great day. Sally
