Canada / Re: Brown glass Javex Bottle -- Maybe Dominion Glass ??

Your bottle was made by Consumers Glass in November/December in a year ending with a 1 before 1962 i.e. 1961, 1951, etc.  Consumers used a trademark of a C in an inverted triangle prior to 1962 and a C in a triangle after 1962.  My apologies for my earlier assumption concerning the configuration of the trademark. 

Moderators- my previous post should be edited to remove the wrong information.

This could possibly be a Mtarfa vase... they often just have a sticker rather than a signature, though they also sometimes have both.

Here is a link to a similar one with a label.

British & Irish Glass / Vasart or Monart lamp base?
« Last post by glassobsessed on Yesterday at 09:14:13 PM »
I bought it thinking Vasart but my experience of handling both Vasart and Monart is very limited, any help would be most welcome.

Thick glass and so heavy, 19 cm tall, 16cm diameter, the bulb holder looks to be next to new.

Well spotted. The second one is indeed three tumblers of identical shape and size to mine.

Sorry about the pics. forgot how small they need to be for this site. Will try these fresh out of photoshop....
Just got a bit of Seasons and it has a similar sort of trail, the same kind of time frame too.

I am no expert by any means but it looks like it may be a European weight, such as Murano, the problem nowadays is that there are so many modern weights out there, coming from China predominantly but also from the UK and France, that it is difficult to determine. My take on things is that any weight that has a rough ground flat bottom is modern and Chinese and although several may be modern, ones that have a smooth polished base are of an age. Wear and scratching is an indication of age but not decisive, myself, although there are some very nice looking rough ground base weights to be had, I tend to shy away from these and go for those with a polished smooth base, ground and polished pontyl, 'dimple' base or with a studio name, artist name or any engraving.
