British & Irish Glass / Re: It's a bit much !

Your reply speaks for itself.....and is what we would have expected...no respect and it has no place on a factual message board...Facebook maybe a better level...

it reminds me a teeny bit of these
https://www.rubylane.com/item/1057876-5904/Kosta-Boda-Vallien-Iridescent-Minos-Vase

I'm a bit confused by your photos - is there a fitter rim? is this a gas lamp shade or oil lamp shade with a wide fitter rim that sits in a metal support? or is it a hanging lamp shade?

Glad he found it amusing, almost as amusing as the description of the vase,  ::)

Glass / Re: Sam Herman / Rosenthal Vase
« Last post by flying free on Yesterday at 11:17:19 PM »
This is on their website:

Quote
'Samuel Herman is a glass artist. He likes to work and experiment with the material glass. His one-of-a-kind pieces speak of new techiques and all his works are strongly characterised by solid craftsmanship.

Herman has been working for Rosenthal since 1973. He has created ten one- of-a-kind glass vases.'

It doesn't say any more about designs but does indicate he had worked with them from 1973 if that helps.

And that thick clear base reminds me of two pieces of  Czech glass I own dating to 60s to early 70s along with the use of the opal. Again not sure if that helps but it is a 'style' that was used in that period.

Thank you, Nicola.

There are a couple of copies on Amazon from only 8.95, so I may well order a copy.

Yes, it was published in Britain and only on the British manufacturers - Sowerby, Davidson, Greener, Heppell. It seems that Millicent loved to write and publish her own books - she wrote at least four cooking books for her local church all with similar titles 'Honey's book on ...' Clearly she was passionate enough about pressed glass to go to the cost of writing her own book, a bit like how we write websites and blogs - the information is minimal and quite basic - although accurate and the photos show more unusual (although not rare) pieces featuring some commemoratives, slag in unusual colours, nursery rhyme pieces, ribbon plates etc. Probably nothing that can't be found in the other books, but I love that she wanted to share what she knew and her collection, even if it didn't feature the flashy pieces (Queen's Ware, the M&W sphinx).
I got it in the late 90's/early 00's when it was almost impossible to find pressed glass books, or they were silly money. Hope this helps :)

What exactly does the use of upper and lower case letters in a description have to do with the glass message board apart from to be supercilious about the sellers style..
And I always thought opinion was open a free...if he believes it rare then that's upto him and again nothing to do with the glass message board...he isn't selling fakes or ripping someone off for hundreds is he,,,it's a 15 piece of glass which having chatted to the seller he actually finds your comments on here amusing and as he says typical glass message board tittle tattle....and he's right there...

As I understand it using only upper case on the Internet is regarded as shouting. If this is being used by the seller to act as if they're promoting the item as a town crier, then fine. 

As for the claim that the colour is rare, then I suggest a little research would easily find that this is one of the commoner colours available in this range by RB.

You all need to get out more and stop interfering with others business...does this discussion actually add to the message board or does it just show how supercilious some members can be about others...the board is becoming so clicky it's amazing some of you can see with the amount of smoke being blown up each others behinds,,,I thought the board was to discuss glass.....was my grammar and spellings ok??

I don't have a spare one, but there are folk here who can do their best to answer any questions you have about it.
The best way to buy glass IS just to buy what you like the best.  :)
