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...)

Thanks,
Michael

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.

New Zealand & Australia Glass / Peter Crisp Galleries
« Last post by brewster on Yesterday at 12:02:37 AM »
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.

Malta Glass / Re: Mdina Seahorses... dates made???
« Last post by Baked_Beans on July 31, 2015, 11:46:02 PM »
It could have been made by an ex-Mdina glassblower I guess. The white label "Hand made in Malta " is a label I have seen on signed Phoenician pieces . I have a whole bunch of photos of Phoenician glass downloaded from the internet . :D

Glass / Re: Pompeian probably not, Arculus maybe?

Have gone over it with a lens, hoping for that elusive Walsh mark, well any mark would be nice, oh well it's not the only unknown piece in the collection, ::) ;D ;D
