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 SO much Paul S. Thank you again Sue .
Stevens and Williams are also known for this type of work and I've seen that type of flower ( 'passion' ta Paul  ;D ) does appear on some of their work, not proof but somewhere else to look  ;D ;D

I would say blown in light blue then 4 dips in dark blue, very nice!
hi Sue........    In the States, from the 1920s to 1950s,  there was something called 'Elegant Glass' - another of the Depression era products, but 'Elegant' was supposedly a better quality product than the bog standard 'Depression' stuff..............     Anyway, one of the Elegant designs was a pattern knocked out by Cambridge Glass called 'Imperial Hunt Scene', which had riders jumping gates etc., not a million miles from the image on your friend's piece of glass.

Just a thought.

better representation of the two blues.

Are you saying there are two different blues used in this vase........ ?

I am only seeing one blue but the different thickness of the glass show a denser version of the same colour.

Thanks for the help Paul. The glasses are full lead, the height is right around 5.5 inches tall. Not a lot of wear on the bottoms. They were probably only used for special occasions. Family history has it that they were purchased at Tiffany's in the early 20th century.

It might help to know your location on the planet, djkglass.
This is a request from a lady i fixed images for before. She can't get herself on the board just now because of phone-y-computery problems I do not understand, but she would love to know the origins of this bowl.
