Hello...I recently purchased this Opalescent Glass fish, with accompanying stand. I believe it is from the Art Deco period. I have seen this a few times on ebay, without the stand. Does anyone have an idea as to the maker?

Many thanks,

Glass Trinket Sets / Re: Mystery set # 001
« Last post by Anne on Today at 04:17:00 AM »
Nice find Angela, but I don't think it's the same tray as Mystery #001. The shape is the same, and the edging looks like a match but the base design is different. I've added a copy of TC's pics for #001 so we can compare them here rather than switching between two sites. The same vertically reeded plain edge also shows up in mystery #085 but that doesn't help pin any of these three down.

Glass / Re: Moser like deceptive glass with Pansy flower base

It's referred to as a 'Zwischengoldglas' and Andrew Lineham has featured a version here:
http://www.antiquecolouredglass.info/Bohemian%20Glass.htm

but does not refer to it as Moser.  His site says c.1860.
The AL one has a clover and there's one around with forget me nots in. Oh and AL has one with a pansy as well.


I know Ivo had one as well and I think put a photo on here somewhere.
edited - Ivo's is here - a political one :)  It makes me think of political cartoons for some reason.

This one has a cockerel in the base and they say c.1890 poss Moser but not signed.

You could write to Moser and ask them.

Thanks for your reply.  Not really concerned about value, at this stage, I would just like an opinion as to where it may have come from or if anyone has seen it before, age etc just to identify it would be really helpful.

Thankyou

Glass that early would be very expensive,I would also expect it to be soda glass with a lot of small bubbles,I could be wrong but I'd be very surprised if it is from that period.

Glass / Baluster Wine Goblet in Green
« Last post by luckytom on Yesterday at 09:06:54 PM »
Baluster wine goblet in green have been told this is early 1700's Venetian mainly due to the rigaree ring. But unsure. Its quite thick and heavy hand blown with round snapped pontil, the glass has bubbles and small lumps and the underneath of the foot is folded.
Not too familair with drinking vessels. Any help would be appreciated. It measures around 7.5 inches tall and the foot is slightly under 4 inches diameter. The rim is fairly uneven. Thanks in advance.


Note
in the picture 7.jpg the rigaree looks skewift but its actualy a level ring. I was using macro to show the imperfections in the bowl and my camera tends to warp in macro..apologies
