Glass / Re: Mold Blown Glass Decanter - Age?
« Last post by Paul S. on Today at 09:29:40 AM »
hello Mat  -  thoughts is possibly about all you're going to get  -  bottles were made in unbelievable profusion just about everywhere - and shape wise this is not run of the mill, it's unusual, and not easy to pigeon-hole - believe the French did something that's referred to as a 'shoulder' - quite likely not British.         
Colour is possibly either turquoise or aquamarine possibly, which might suggest Bohemian or French.             Date wise it's a bit of a puzzle  -  doesn't look to be nouveau in design, yet could well be 1850 - 1920.
Can't see from your pix if there is any wear within the neck opening - evidence of a stopper - which obviously you don't have anyway - but wondering whether this might have been a carafe rather than a stoppered decanter - although believe most carafes were made without a disc rim, so this likely to be a stoppered bottle.                                  The disk shaped rim looks irregular which probably means lower quality.
Is there much base wear?

Let's hope others can offer better information.

would you think this is an old one, and if yes, how old? It has a chipped pontil mark, some seeds and stirations. Thank you for your thoughts!

I thought the vase/bottle? in the photos was made by Blenko, but when I went on the Blenko Glass Collector's website, couldn't find one exactly like it. It's a very interesting piece. Would like to know who made it.

I photographed it in a white box, which created white reflection issues. However, hope the lovely textural quality of the piece can be seen.  Has a few air bubbles here and there. Measures: 7 H x 4 1/2" W

Thanks, in advance, for taking a look and for any information you may be able to provide.

not a clue, but.............    hoops like these always make me think of art deco...........  if it turned out to be from the 1930 - 40 period then that might account for the degree of wear, plus would be suitable age for uranium.
Glass Paperweights / Re: Signed 1990 paperweight with WFS code on bottom
« Last post by Tim_B on Yesterday at 09:39:35 PM »
You're right! This was Eric Brakken at Glasshouse Studio in Seattle. I emailed the studio and they confirmed it.

They even still make a modern-day version of the same piece:

The WFS is their code for Weight Flat Sided. (Other codes they use include WSF for Weight Single Flower, WRA for Weight Round Abstract, WOA for Weight Optical Abstract, VFS for Vase Flat Sided, VFP for Vase Footed Petite, VFA for Vase Footed Abstract, etc.).

Thanks for helping me solve this glass mystery!

Reminds me of stuff that Boom and Doyen produced at least in terms of shape.  Boom did a pale blue but do not know if they did this green.
Possible East Germany maker - but can't remember the name Ivo gave me.
