British & Irish Glass / Re: Brierley thistle vase with acid stamp
« Last post by brucebanner on Today at 05:27:09 AM »
I would say it's Royal Brierley late 80's early 90's mark. I found a set of RB honeysuckle wine glasses with it on yesterday. That vase also comes in three sizes that I know of the biggest was about 10 inches tall. Big chunky pieces of glass. The Honeysuckle pattern started about 1987.

Glass / Phoenix Consolidated French Crystal line lamp base?
« Last post by kwqd on Today at 12:46:22 AM »
I find Phoenix Consolidated vases in this style described as Martele French Crystal vases or Fairy vases. This is the only lamp base in this style that I have found, though.

I have a similar lamp base in pottery, I think made by Muncie Pottery, that I have never been able to find any information about and it is also the only example that I have seen. Muncie Pottery copied some Consolidated Phoenix glass pieces in pottery, according to the Phoenix Consolidated Collectors Club web site. I've never gotten a response to any of my emails to PCGCC.

http://www.pcgcc.org/

On my glass lamp, it looks like the harp and socket have possibly been replaced. I was wondering if anyone knows if Phoenix Consolidated did make this lamp and if the rest (finial, crown/font cap and base) is original. I have found a few images of other P C lamps with somewhat similar crowns but nothing exactly the same. 

Also wondering what the original shade looked like.

Thanks!

This topic has been moved to Glass Market Place as it's a buying/selling book query not a book publishing post.

Great, nice to be the bearer of good news for a change!

I occasionally see baskets that are superficially similar but lack the size, complexity and quality of these FT designs, no idea where they are from though.

Fratelli Toso from 1950s or 60s I expect, another example with a wider handle in exact same colour combination on page 181 of Leslie Pina's book on Fratelli Toso. Other examples are shown on the previous couple of pages with the thinner handle construction like yours.

Another example, this one is large and opalescent.
