Glass / Re: Help with maker please
« Last post by Greg. on Yesterday at 10:03:54 PM »
Used to own one of these in a pink or peach colour from memory, never managed to pin down a maker at the time. However, vaguely, recall one recently attributed to Sowerby, although not sure what evidence this was based on. I'll try to dig out a picture of my example, when I get a moment.

I always thought that Ms. was the standard abbreviation for author's drafts  -  and isn't there a famous story by Mr. Poe about a woman in a bottle ;) :P :-*

Hi Mark .........     not Jobling as far as I'm aware, nor Bagley that I can see, and can't see it on Pamela's presglass-pavillon.
Have you tried the torch  -  assume it is uranium.     Unusual foot support.

What is the height please??

Glass / Vintage glass roemer help please

I think this has some age, there is dirt embedded in the creases of the glass and seeds within the glass, the pontil base has been pushed up into the glass creating a domed effect, i cant feel or see any wear to the base.

The ring below the bowl looks like a clock cog wheel  has been impressed into the glass.

It's 5 1/4 inches in height, 2 inches across the rim and 3 inches across the base.

Any help welcome regards Chris.

I prefer the subtle blue grey under strip lighting to the pale lilac in daylight. Mostly I just avoid it completely.
What is it (exactly) you're looking for David? Caithness neodynium is not exactly scarce in charity shops around here... ::)

big thanks to both of you - especially David for adding the proper links. :)

Scottish not my area really, and I was hoping it might have been a little rarer but no matter, it's a lovely piece - at least until it's under the strip lighting.
Would agree that Judith's article is so informative and interesting.

There you go Paul:

And Judith's excellent article:

I do have two cut pieces of Caithness Neodymium, both from the Elegance range. The optimistically named "Hyacinth Vase" (15cm, 7895) is featured in PC's book, The Curious History of the Bulb Vase, p.162 - I also have the "Tall Slim Teardrop Vase" (31.5cm tall, 7893). The latter is very unstable and needs Museum Gel!

Still looking for the others...
