The images you have posted really help to illustrate the thread, and make it very informative Peter, thank-you. :-*

I'll never forget my first sight of orange cloud glass - it was on here, many years ago, Gareth (Morgan 48) had a round lamp in this colour. Glorious.
Orange is decidedly the very best colour of cloud glass - and the scarcest. Typical. Everything I like is always the hardest of stuff to find. ::)

Well done Chris - enjoy them. :)

We spent about five hours there and I found a few pieces, but I find just mooching around very enjoyable. The number of stall holders were much reduced though, probably due to uncertainty with the weather. If it had been today...  :P

Three hours I walked around that place and I could not find anything apart from one piece of Isle of Wight glass, even Charlie had had enough. Hope you fared better than me. :-[

I certainly do not disagree with the statement that Riedel made some great glass. I simply feel that almost every house that produced glass in the period produced green iridescent pieces, a large percentage of which can not be identified. The list of companies that made iridescent green glass is quite long, and contains both well known and obscure makers. My point was, that unless this particular shape can be linked directly to Riedel, a Riedel attribution would be extremely difficult to support.

Glass / Is this a Sowerby shoe
« Last post by mrs vulture on Today at 11:45:46 AM »
I think the shoe is likely to be Sowerby, but I can't find one in the same pattern as this one. It's not got the Sowerby mark inside. It's got a lot in common with another pair I have which are marked which I have shown in the last photo. But also there are many differences too. The bows on the front are almost the same, the toe shape is the same. Everything else is different. Has anyone got a marked one so I know for sure its Sowerby?  Thanks, Cheryl
