Scandinavian Glass / Re: Help identifying a vase?

Part of a light fitting?

Is there anything to stop the two halves from sliding apart?

As you're probably aware, I have a similar charger to yours "in reverse", John, my Rosenthal one, signed by Michael Harris.
Now I'm going to have to get ladders out and get it down to inspect its bottom.  8)

Looking again at the chargers I have here has been interesting, always something new to notice or learn...

All three have much bigger flat polished areas on the base as though any 'extra step' was ground away before polishing. The blue charger in the photo has the remains of that extra step on one side of the base where it was not all ground away. I suspect that they were all made like the charger in question, perhaps there was an impatient customer who did not want to wait for it to be finished.

Glass / Gullaskruf tea light holder maybe? help please.
« Last post by brucebanner on Yesterday at 07:02:03 PM »
Any thoughts on these, my first thought was Wedgwood but i can't find them, second Gullaskruf maybe?.

Cut and polished upper rim and wear to the base on both although they look hardly used and very light.

7 inches in height, 3 3/4 across the rim and 2 7/8th inches across the base. 

Regards Chris.

Much better, thank you! :)

I'm intrigued by this as I cannot see it working as a vase as it would surely leak where the two sections join, but then you have the hole in the top... the only thing I have previously seen as a 2-part pot with a hole in the lid was a hair collector, as part of a lady's dressing table set. But this looks far too modern to be one of those, plus the hole isn't big enough for that... 

Let's see what other people think...

The board's policy on copyright is not to allow copying verbatim text or scans of text/images from publications within their copyright period, Nicola, so although the original catalogues are out of copyright the scans made by the PGCC and used within their own publications are still covered by their copyright, so they should not be posted on the board. 

Facts themselves are not subject to copyright, so you may extract data facts (e.g. pattern names and dates etc from any published works) and post them here in your own words, in doing so adding an attribution (source) is required - (a) it's good manners and (b) helps verify your data.

Many of the authors of reference works on glass are members here on the board so anyone trying to (ab)use their publications will also soon be spotted! :)

I am positive it is an early "experimental" or simply a one-off artist piece. It's big, so would have had to have been made by one of the top folk there at that early time.  :)

Apart from the bad spelling and the repetitiveness, just where is the Royal Brierley (sp?) signature. Do they mean that extra blurry bit mid-left that you could not read if your life depended on it? Oh and the large print and all caps is VERY annoying!

I know, a very unusual shape in comparison to others!
May have been an early experimental piece..
I'm not sure I'll be keeping it, as pretty as it is :'(

Now that IS an unusual shape - it has a stepped sort of bottom part, not just the one bowl in the middle.
I've not seen one like this before, but it would be consistent with being properly early and of a sort of experimental, one-off artist piece, much more than standard production.

It is still completely consistent with being unmarked and unsigned.

Thank-you for the extra pics - they have been very informative, and I hope it helps you a bit more too.
