Glass / Re: Kosta Boda Kjell Engman? Valuation?
« Last post by ahremck on Today at 12:44:31 PM »
Oliver you need to be less precious about the responses you make.  How do you think I felt when I was told I had a pottery piece when I had been collecting glass for 30 years or so.  I got a little sarcastic I admit but after calming down posted more photos that showed it actually was glass.  Clever remarks are not what we use this board for.  I revel in having a community likely to help me - even years later.

Please respect these people for the experts they are - not the semantics they may occasionally use.  If you want to see an example of what is possible see near the top of the Glass section under the section for unattributed glass an entry under my GMB name(ahremck).  Another Australian expert has cleared up a mystery for me.  I respect his advice enormously because I know how carefully he researches things.

Can ayone shed any light on this piece please? Cased spatter glass bottle with stopper. Reluctant to describe it as a perfume bottle because it is quite big for such an item, it stands approx 16cm high not inluding stopper and is approx 8cm in diameter at its widest point. There is what I guess is a perfume brand logo badge glued to the bottle, I'm not convinced that this is original and could have been added at a later date, opinions on this welcome. Stopper has a crescent shape ground into it. Any guidance would be much appreciated. Full size Photo can be viewed at
Another method that may work isx to take it at a very shallow angle so the bse appears white and the signature "black".  This takes the pattern and colour out of the action see two photos below illustrating this.

Hi.  Perhaps you have to pay 'per mouse'?

curved lines were never better combined !!
Yes absolutely.
Try rubbing talc over the signature that helps it stand out.

I am sure the lollipop [wish someone would have made a better name for it] is right  thought must agree the photos are really weird maybe they are scans?
Did you buy it the U.K Patrick ?
