hi thanks for the reply, any specimen / bud vases I have seen are usually thin straight or tapering never saw one in a baluster shape so I don't think it's one of those and scent bottle would be strange as there is very little room in it to keep scent also there is no sign of it ever having a stopper

I have seen similar small pieces described as specimen vase's although no information other than that i suppose it could be used as a perfume also.

Glass / Antique Cobalt Blue Thing(??)
« Last post by The Glass Staircase on Yesterday at 11:14:24 AM »
Hi,

I got this a few weeks ago in a lot with some early 19th/late 18th century glasses. finger bowls, wine glass rinsers etc but not been able to work out what this is for or if simply a decorative item? Doesn't look like it has ever had a stopper and you wouldn't get much inside the shallow circular base for it to be a scent bottle or the like(?)

It is approx 10 cm / 4 inches high and 8.5 cm / 3.25 inches diameter

Any help greatly appreciated as always!

Best,

Adam

Glass / British Modernist Exhibition Piece

Can anyone identify the maker or designer of this piece? Large size, amazing cutting - looks like an Exhibition piuce but completely unmarked. Has a late Deco/pre war feel to it. Thanks!!!

Both worth investigating further I think.

I know what you mean, m. Hortensja.
But I'm really not sure that is what it is. It looks a little Mtarfa-ish too, although the neat little handle doesn't.
I can't really tell from the photos whether it's silver chloride or silver nitrate used, although I'm kind of starting to get a feel for it when I've got something in my own mitts.
