Glass / Re: Mold Blown Glass Decanter - Age?
« Last post by Paul S. on Yesterday at 10:11:07 PM »
Pamela is possibly correct  -  in English these things were known as 'tumble ups' - 'carafe and tumbler' - 'guest water bottle and tumbler', and are now often missing their tumbler   -  date wise more likely to be c. 1880 ish to 1930s even.
They are sometimes decorated, but mostly just made in clear glass, so this one is a bit special.          If you try the Board's search you should find quite a bit of chat on the subject.

My first thought was that this beauty is missing its tumbler/drinking glass to be placed upside down on top - securely held by the shoulder?
Known as bed-side water carafe.
Sorry, can't contribute regarding origin and age.
Glass / Re: Cut Glass Bowl Could it be John Walsh Walsh
« Last post by Paul S. on Yesterday at 07:56:12 PM »
thanks Roy  -  would agree with m and think that your cut pattern is too universal to feel comfortable saying Walsh, and you are missing the fan split cutting too.

sorry to say it, but I don't see this square grid pattern as being Walsh  -  if you look at their cut designs incorporating relief diamonds and table diamonds, they appear to be cut to produce a pattern running at 45 degrees, and could be wrong but not sure that they did cross hatching on the diamonds, which I think I'm seeing on yours  -  is that right?

In my experience, and aside from drinking glasses, Walsh cut bowls and similar turn up infrequently - perhaps they were pricey pieces to buy in the first place.

Reynolds book can be a trial at times, I agree, but in the absence of anything else on the subject I guess we have to live with it  -  what makes me chuckle is the picture on page 26 -   fig. 61  - I always need to look twice to remind me which one is Elizabeth :)

Sorry Paul may be my mistake. I should of said fig.47 page 22, same book I think 1999.

m I still think very similar , I had a very close look at bowl and no mark so it will stay as no ID for time being.

Thanks Roy
