I don't Angela, sorry, it's a piece I don't have an example of or a good image of, but there is a reasonable picture on Chris Stewart's website here: (bigger version here: Hope that helps. :)
Change color under fluorescent light to pale blue. Measure 6" inches tall. No markings. Could anyone help please?

British & Irish Glass / Davidson comport #807?
« Last post by nick.a on Yesterday at 01:28:25 PM »
Hi, This is an open query but asked more specifically of Fred, as it refers to pictures in both the Davidson and Sowerby galleries:
Hi Fred,
I have the same comport/tazza as the unknown one at the top of page one in the Davidson gallery( I think it may be # 807 on the same 'Jellies or Sweetmeats' page of the 1880-1910 catalogue ( 5 centre of penultimate row), as recent topic #229. Also, does it not bear a striking similarity to the one on the final page of the Sowerby gallery( 
I'd appreciate your views on this.
Kind regards

I can see that there might be more similarities with Bohemian glass :)

Just to clarify why I added the French link, I have come across a number of 'apparently' French pieces (caveat - I am not always sure that the pieces are definitely from the area of the museum they are in as they don't appear to be signed )that make me wonder whether I sometimes too quickly think BOhemian when it might be another country completely - especially when it doesn't quite 'fit'.   e.g. there is a fish on that site that I may have thought of as Romanian rather than French.  There are many French pieces with molded ribbed designs so I'm always a bit curious when I see that feature.

btw the pontil mark isn't polished as far as I could see?
it's ground but not polished :)

Do a Google search for 'Paden City glass samovar' and then look at the various 'images' that are available. I think you will see this exact shape (the metal parts will vary widely, so ignore those and just concentrate on the shape of the glass). These sorts of things were also made at Cambridge Glass, and both the Paden City and the Cambridge versions date from the 1920s.
