Glass / Re: Picture file too large
« Last post by misha on Today at 12:54:11 AM »
this might help... what I do.

1) Change camera settings to lower resolution. Lowest on mine is termed "VGA".

2) Transfer file to computer and do initial crop and rotate using simple Windows Photo Gallery application. Tab there that says 'fix'.
Crop it down to remove all non relevant portions of image. It will reduce file size. 
Please rotate image so it isn't on side or upside down!
Why do people fail to fix this obvious error that does my head in?   

3) Cropped image may now be small enough. I find often is.  If not..

4) Open Infranview >
Top left of page has 'File' >
Open.. >
Top left of page has 'Image' >
Resize/Resample.. >
Set new size selected >
depending on portrait or landscape image set the larger length of image to 700 pixel the other side will follow in proportion so only enter one side value >
set DPI at 72 >
hit the OK button >
it goes back to modified image being displayed [looks the same] >
hit 'File' >
Save as.. [give it a new name so that original doesn't get changed in case it's messed up]

Now, find modified image on computer and check file size.
Is it under 120kB and over 30kB?
Small file size will be a problematic if fine detail in image is needed to ID or highlight a manufacturing feature.

Looks like a stylized "JE" to me. I tried a Google search but turned nothing up.

Yes, you are spot on. The globe PB is Satin and the conical PB is Black Ribbons. See these pages:

Hope this helps.

Glass / Re: bubbled purple vase for id
« Last post by misha on Today at 12:19:53 AM »
Might be that the 'shape' in photo is affected by parallax error, as I have found in images I've taken recently. ie. the image of item doesn't look like the item 'in hand' due to camera being at close range.

just a thought, possibly wrong due to sleep deprivation error.

Hello and welcome, I'm no expert but they look right to me, I think these are what were used as the basis for the Royal Brierley studio range, ;D ;D

Hi Anne, I downloaded Infranview, I assume that's what I need to do, I am up in the 800-900kb range on pic sizes, and this is just overwhelming me, no idea what I am supposed to do with it. I can get as far as getting the image I want to share in Infranview, after that I sort of glaze over on resizing and saving it so I can share it with you.

The shape reminded me of a rainbow shape but on closer inspection it might be a little too flared.  And the shape of the foot in profile in your pic also looks too flared by comparison to 'rainbow'.  Although wracking my brains that profile of foot does remind me of a pale blue crackly vase I have that is the same as those urn shaped crackle vases often muted as S& W but with no definite id iirc.

On the other hand ... the bubbles and the way they are spread remind me of those in my cloudy vase (which is cloudy and bubbly and is S&W), the foot reminded me of this one from Keith, which is possibly S&W as it seems to match your green version on that thread, and which is the same shape as my S&W pink cloudy with bubbles.

And the pontil mark is right for Stevens and Williams. So I guess my mind just automatically saw Stevens and Williams :)

Is it quite heavy?

I'll have a look in the book at the two you've mentioned.

btw I guess you've seen this one which was sold as John Walsh Walsh? presumably Pompeian as it seems to match the picture here (sorry I've not had time to double check books for it)

but your vase looks slimmer towards the foot and not quite the same shape and thicker glass

Paul, also see this thread - the purple in this one does look different to that of your vase.  Yours looks a bit darker (reminds me of Richardson purple :)  )

thanks m....      to be honest it doesn't, in my opinion, have the quality I would have thought of as being S.&W., but to be honest I know almost nothing about their bubbly glass.

As you'll know from CH's '20th Century Glass', there's quite a variety of origins for streaky and bubbly wares - mostly from the 20's and 30's - and all I can say is that if pushed to offer a suggestion I might have gone with Haden Mullet or Arculus, perhaps.               But really no idea.

The polished pontil depression and clear casing do however suggest some quality and age.

That's brilliant thanks Neil..wow that is an unusual frog not seen one like that before...at least i know what to look for...maybe Pamela has seen one like this before and could help in identification of the vase.

Glass / Isle of Wight Glass Identification
« Last post by PaulFitz on Yesterday at 09:47:44 PM »
I have just started collecting Isle of Wight glass and i just want to be 100% sure on these two pieces.

I think the smaller one is called "Ribbons" and the larger is called "Satin"

So if anyone out there can confirm this it would be greatly appreciated .
