Glass / Small Neodymium Bird, Taiwan
« Last post by Ohio on Yesterday at 03:49:36 PM »
Almost forgot I had this. Pic maybe not great as its a cell pic & lighting in mall was anything but good however a couple of weeks ago I ran across this small Neodymium bird complete with label & knew a couple of people on here might need this for documentation & attribution.
Glass Paperweights / Help Required with Identification of minature paperweight
« Last post by jimbo1 on Yesterday at 01:25:00 PM »

I wonder if someone can point me in the right direction with this weight that I picked up a few days ago.

The weight is small - 1.5" accross the bottom and just over .5" high

The base is flat with a slight grove where the cane edge ends, you can feel it with your finger nail.

The colours are orange, lilac, white and red.

I'm thinking old english has it has the feel of the larger ones I own but could be wrong.

All help very much appreciated as allways.

Glass / Opalescent ribbed vase with applied floral decor - Bohemian? Kralik?
« Last post by rocco on Yesterday at 11:12:44 AM »
Ribbed opalescent vase, with applied decor of flower bud (or fruit?) and 2 leaves.
Height 12 cm, polished rim.

I would think Bohemian and possibly Kralik? (>> This one on Craig's site has a similar ribbing, but no other Kralik vases with applied floral decoration in opalescent glass there...)

Murano & Italy Glass / Can anyone add anything about this piece of Murano
« Last post by seanduxbury on Yesterday at 09:16:07 AM »
Hi All.  Just found this piece of Murano in the North West of England.  There is a partial label on the underside but very little else to give any indication of date, maker etc.  Can anyone fill in any details?  It measures 18 cms x 11 cm x 6.5 cms (L x W - at widest point - x H) and weighs almost 1 kg.  Any help much appreciated.

could just be a distortion of camera/light/screen, but your green doesn't look very much like the green in Williams-Thomas book, Keith  -  if you have the book, which of the other shades of this colour do you think it is?  (see page 72).          The green in the book is quoted as being jade.

There is a recent article on my Australian Glass blog about the glass artist (and sheep farmer) Peter Crisp. The item in the photos below was not included (it is the larger one in the duo photo - the smaller one was included). This one is 13cm high by 37.5cm diameter, and like its smaller sibling it is fused in three layers and slumped to shape. I'll add a close-up photo of the edge.
