Glass / Re: Powell / Whitefriars wrought iron stands query
« Last post by Bernard C on Today at 04:37:47 AM »
Paul — Apologies.   I wasn't querying Whitefriars' production of wrought iron mounts at all.   I believe it firmly established, from the mid 1870s for lighting, from the late 1870s for vessels.   We even have the names of the blacksmith and his boy.

What I was querying was the BM text "using the same furnaces".   I should have made this more clear.   I was hoping that someone might know how the BM came to this conclusion, before contacting them with information to back up a possible correction.

Essi — thanks.   I will try to get in touch.

Glass / Re: Are these vases Kralik, Loetz or something else?
« Last post by obscurities on Today at 04:36:14 AM »
I, for one, am not sure who these are by. They have a resemblance to the Martelé décor by Kralik and Rindskopf. The issue I have with them being one of those two, is that the Martelé decor by the companies I am familiar with is that the decor is generally a little tighter pattern. These have some very large clear areas in the decor and that just not fall in line with Kralik & Rindskopf Martelé examples I am familiar with.   In this case, the color is also a little different. I have seen a couple of examples of this décor recently, and on this shape if memory serves me correctly.

I  can say pretty confidently that they are not Loetz.

They are, at least for me, a bit of a puzzle at the moment.

May I inquire if the rims are Silver and Hallmarked?

Period wise these are likely ca 1910. Pretty examples in a different color......  and I love pairs...

Thanks Roberta and Chris.

Although I don't technically collect paperweights, this is my second Paul Ysart. The first one has been with me for a couple of years and I can't see this one leaving in the near future.

Some things are a delight to own, this definitely falls into that category.

They are cocktail sticks, used for the cherry. Finding the Made in Germany labelled ones on eBay is a stroke of luck. Clear match with the rooster.

Just looked at the ebay listing and would have to say it is David Lotton without a doubt. Guess I should have looked first before making a comment.
