British & Irish Glass / Stuart engraved individual water jug
« Last post by Lustrousstone on Yesterday at 08:11:51 PM »
A sweet little thing and fully marked. 3.75 in tall. I think it's for water for your whisky rather than a creamer. Rd No 764704 registered on 1 June 1931. The question is what was registered?

Thanks Paul, the one in 20th CBG is dated '67 so I presume from the text and picture that that was when it was first done, I presume.. ::) ;D put it on a different shelf !

Glass / Scallop edge dessert bowl ID please
« Last post by Lustrousstone on Yesterday at 07:14:43 PM »
I'm sure we've had these pressed glass dessert bowls on here before, possibly in clear with Matthey Crinkles, but I can't remember if we ever ID'd them or think what to search for them under. This is the small size (about 5.5 in diameter) but I've seen a serving bowl too. The glass is pretty thick. Any thoughts please

As far as I know Stuart never included uranium in any of their glass, so I'm going to disagree with your suggestion Keith. ;)
Sorry, I can't offer any constructive ideas tho  -  might the orange colour suggest a more modern piece of glass??  -  just thinking out loud really.

Meant to add......    can be helpful to describe the extent or otherwise, of wear  -  not always possible to see in screen pix if there is any or not, and can make a difference to thoughts on age.        Assume I'm seeing a ground/polished pontil - which normally would indicate a piece of reasonable quality.

very impressive piece Keith - good find, and I agree a good design                    According to Benson and Hayhurst, Irene Stevens left Webb Corbett in 1957 although she remained a consultant until 1963, so I'm assuming this design was  created some years prior to 1968, but not entirely sure.
Those outlined ovals are reminiscent of Kny's well known leaf motive, and which was copied again much later by John Luxton.

Surely this is going to bring 'that' shelf down ;) ;)

Glass / Re: Heavy - I just don't know - vase
« Last post by Mr. Turnip on Yesterday at 05:42:11 PM »
Hmm, not sure my vase is quite in quite the same league as David Patchen, but I guess I can enquire. I can't help but think that the thin cased, white interior of my vase seems to be a predominately Polish and Chinese feature. I have quite a few Polish vases which - although I'm not always sure who made them - have a white cased interior.
