I hope I'm wrong but I always thought the signature had to be wheel-engraved and not diamond-tip signed? ???

Hi Mr Millarart,  :-* it's been a while!
No new pieces of Monart recently then?  ;)  I've no glass money at the moment, so no new bits for a while  ::)

Here a picture of a Ysart harlequin (early one) for comparison.

Hello there,

Try searching for Peill & Putzler from Germany... the mark should be read the other way around....

Glass / Re: Help with ID for black plinth please .
« Last post by Paul S. on Today at 09:56:45 PM »
I haven't helped yet ;D

don't think I've ever seen this particular shape  -  but as for plinths in general, charity shops often display them with the cavity uppermost, believing them to be some sort of tray or container.     Probably all those I've seen seem to have a design profile that has some form of pyramidal outline, and when placed the correct way up, show a slightly raised edge rim or bead, into which the main display glass sits.

This is very unusual, perhaps it has 'never seen action' :)

There looks to be no wear or scratches within the flat side , where it does look like there is matting in the last picture it is not !

Thanks for your help Paul .

The flat side has a couple of chips at the rim , other than that It's very hard to see which side has the most wear so I can not give a definite answer , this picture shows the other side .
I could well be wrong but the shape just looks wrong when the  flat side is on top .
Dave.

(I have to pop out for a few hours now so please excuse me for not responding)

with plinths, it's the recessed sides that are hidden, usually.          What does the other surface look like Dave - and which of the two rims appears to have the most wear?

Germany / Re: Glashutte in Holsthum Germany
« Last post by kaycyn on Today at 07:01:32 PM »
Hi Frank - thanks for your information and the quick reply! Yes, I have Dominik Lais (spelling in church records). On a list of employees from the Holsthum glass works from about 1777 he is listed as a "director".

Of the 35 men listed, all but a few have their place of origin listed. Of course one of the ones which doesn't is Josef Greiner! Dominik is listed as coming from Brandenbourg, Luxembourg.

I wish I could find employee lists from some of the other factories in hopes I could maybe piece together a "trail" of some of the workers and see if Josef "traveled" among them. I have sent about a dozen emails to Germany and have not heard back from a single one! They don't get returned so . . .

Would you happen to know anything about the use of hyphenated names? I have hundreds of records recorded just as "Greiner" and then I have hundreds more listed as "Greiner-Durr", "Greiner-Fuchs", "Greiner-Gobes" and so on and no one seems to know why. Even in the same family - same parents - I have had as many of 5 different Greiner surnames!

Thank again for your reply - Cindy
