Glass / Re: vase with blue spiral
« Last post by bat20 on Yesterday at 08:22:14 PM »
Thanks Paul,at first i thought i thought the spiral was intact,however there is a hint that the strand  carried on to the main body finishing 5mm or so from the neck,you can see the spiral on the top of the rim,but it's not in relief and seems to be in the glass,the rim is also thicker on one side than the other something to do withe the process i would imagine

However, for convenience, I have simply removed your first message about this bowl.

I have advised the seller that it is not by Paul Ysart and referred themn to my article at - scroll down to "The Main Pictures" and see the bottom right of the first photo. All PY "basket of flower" sulphides I have seen are from the same mould (brooch).

For confirmation, when Alan said "white spatter ground" for the eBay weight, I am sure he meant "ruby".

Maybe it's a mushroom silhouette??  ;D

Did you intend to add a different second picture? Or was the second copy just a mistake?

The colours really do come out differently on almost every single piece, don't they?
I see there is a fingerbowl underplate the same shape as yours, but almost no colour at all - just goes from clear and yellowy through to blue.

My complaint was more about the sort of pictures taken (not showing the glass to its best advantage, unlike yours  ;) ) and the difficulty of even seeing them in that silly moving, jerky enlargement box bit...

hi i am definitely no expert i buy what i like then try to find something about it, this on has me puzzled tho.
bought this a while ago thought it might have some age. i was led to believe the rule of thumb that have handles that start at the top are older. dont think it is machine threaded . rough pontil could it be early victorian or am i totally wrong and made last year lol.
