Glass / Can Anyone I D this Uranium Glass Bowl Please?
« Last post by theElench on Today at 03:55:04 PM »
I'm not usually a great fan of this sort of engraved glass but I think these stylised fronds are quite attractive.  I'm guessing it's 1930s, European? 

If it's any help, the cutting seems very finely done with each leaf and rectangle filled with very fine lines, giving them an almost textured appearance.  It glows very strongly, has numerous air bubbles and a couple of very small black inclusions.

Thanks for any ideas.

Scavo is an acid treatment of the surface. That piece has broken silver foil on it, as your little bottle does, but I can't see any other similarities.  :)

Hi Sue I came across this website http://www.thegildedcurio.com/item-Italian-811.html
 could it be scavo technique by Mario Gambaro?
I tracked down his place of work, so I emailed the images, so I'll let you know if I get a reply!
Thanks

Ordinary bottles and lots of decorative bottles will be mass-produced and mould blown in big factories, but this is Studio Glass. Blown without a mould. :)

Hi Sue, thanks for the info, It will give me a start to who may of made it. Do glass blowers blow bottles into a mould to get a uniform size?
Best Wishes

It's probably by one of the many American companies but which I don't know, possibly Heisey, Westmoreland or Fenton. It's actually pressed glass made in a mould and probably comes under Early American Pattern Glass/ EAPG. You could try the Collectors' Weekly site which is more U.S. orientated.

American silver very often bore just the word "sterling" and this is now taken as a good indicator of its origin. I assume the original seller had done their homework and identified it correctly and I think it probably is at least French and was given an RD number on import. There are lots of Lalique pieces online but nothing exactly the same

Thanks Trevor. I reached out to Marc Kalifa and he confirmed it is one of his pieces.

Lovely piece. The central character is a double '喜' or 'double happiness' symbol: commonly seen at weddings but also used on general household decor.

Both the characters inscribed on the base and cast into the side read 'Liuligongfang'. The cast characters on the side read top to bottom, left column then right; bottom engraved runs left to right.
