Glass / Help to ID Large Glass Bird
« Last post by Birkyc on Today at 10:06:44 AM »

Can anyone give me some guidance to identify the origins of this bird figure please. I have tried for the last couple of months without success. It is 19cm Long x 15cm High, x 8cm Wide, and weighs 1.5kg. Any information would be much appreciated.
Hi there M

Thanks so much for your welcome

Yes he is beautiful

I will be patient and look forward to hearing from anyone

Thanks again

This specific green colour makes me think more of Baccarat...and the model 'Harcourt'...

you have a very lovely green cut to clear cut glass goblet. I think it is very reasonable to suppose that it is 19th c. - probably 3d/4th quarter. one possible maker is the Belgian firm val st lambert, a glass maker known for their colorful cut to clear designs. this glass is one of the nicer ones I have seen on the board.

I am almost certain that it is not moser. I was thinking it was later, but given the underside, I can see why you think it is earlier. my reason for a 20th century dating is due to the decoration rather than construction. I could be entirely mistaken about the age.
Glass / Re: Nice little water/lemonade set

even if it were a child's sized set, I have my doubts about it being a lemonade or water set mostly due to the impracticality of the shape of the pitcher for such a purpose, which in this case may actually be a decanter. lemonade or water sets usually have wider mouths to make filling and pouring easy. similar observations apply to the glasses, which in the case of water are generously sized. this shape and size (even supposing that it is for children) seems more suited for liquors.
Glass / Re: Enamel decorated large vase??legras?? mont joye???

while the enamel on the glass is nicely painted, I have serious reservations about it being mont joye, moser, or le gras. the glass style and decoration is quite different from these 3 makers, and is not of the same caliber.

the covered jar is in the style of American brilliant cut glass. the Europeans also produced rich cut glass, but my suspicions are that this item was produced after the cut class heyday which lasted from c. 1876-1914. after the war, American cut glass production dwindled, but producers in turkey and a few places in eastern Europe attempted to take their places. the quality between the abc period glass and the neo abc is usually a difference between night and day. prodigious quantities from turkey and elsewhere have been produced from before ww2 down to the present time.

while I am not dogmatically stating that yours is modern, that would be my guess at the moment. the shape and form is certainly not typical of the first period glass.

After nearly five years, here is No. 2, turning a rather beautiful Walsh oddity into a Walsh mainstream product line.   This fan vase has a short stem, making it much easier to see how it was made.   The scale of the two vases is quite similar the two feet are almost exactly the same size.

I wonder what Walsh called the style?

Does anyone know of other examples?
