Glass Market Place / Re: Christmas Tree Lamp-work paperweight ? Caithness
« Last post by Alsretro on April 24, 2018, 09:31:21 PM »
I'm curious too Sue as I've no idea how that happens :D I use a Mac and most times I just use something called Preview to re-size them. Magic must happen that I have no control over :D
As to KevH's point - I wasn't meaning the main paperweights bit for my benefit. Anyone else seeing a similar weight is maybe more likely to be pre-warned if info was in that section. Maybe it's only me but prior to posting this - I don't know the last time I looked at Market Place whereas I fairly regularly look at the Paperweights section. Was just a thought
I have eventually identified this P/W as being Isle of Wight studio glass, but cannot find the pattern name or information on how it was made. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

it is approx 5 cm high (2 in) and 7.5 cm (3 in) diameter. Weighs 415 g (14.6 oz).

Hi and welcome.  :)
Pictures of the whole thing might help identification too. :)
I'm afraid I don't know the mark myself, sorry.
You seem to have used your email address as your username - we're going to have to ask you to change that, to prevent you getting harvested by spambots.
I'm going to report this to a moderator, to ask them to help you fix it.
Don't worry about it!

Thanks for posting such a good clear image, directly to the board. That is much appreciated. ;D
The green is certainly not an early Mdina colour, and I don't think it's newer Mdina either. Sorry, I don't know what it actually is.
Can anyone help identify the maker of this glass paperweight? It has a partial label and I feel sure that this belongs to a glass studio, but I am not knowledgeable enough to know which one. It has Mdina colours, but not sure that it is Mdina.

The glass paperweight diameter is about 7.5 cm (3 in) wide at its widest and 7 cm high (3 in). It weighs 550g (1 lb 3.4 oz).

Hi I am new to the board and to collecting glass. I purchased this bowl and have no idea who made it. It does have a mark and I did try and look it up but I found nothing. I was hoping someone could help me out.

My apologies SAWIVI, I am only now revisiting this topic. Your photos are very interesting thank you, similarities with the two vases far right in your second photo, especially the feet.

This one is described as Lobmeyr:

Another example, this time 31cm tall. Revisiting my comment re the colours, much of Vienna's Art Nouveau was pretty vibrant.

British & Irish Glass / Re: Early Pressed Glass Tea Caddy

I don't think it's irreleveant at all. The man on the video is completely wrong.
It is a mixing bowl from a tea caddy, not a sugar bowl, tea caddies didn't have sugar bowls. So, FB, you've identified and illustrated the correct function of the piece.  ;D

I'm curious about your pics, Alastair.
What is it you do with them that allows the first blow up from the thumbnail, to blow up more?
I get a + sign that appears and hovers over it. It's a wonderful feature.  :)
