Glass / Re: September Morn Pressed Glass Mirror Centrepiece
« Last post by Mosquito on Yesterday at 10:53:25 PM »
I always suspected the one piece version of this figure and frog was Bagley. I bought one a while back which came with an Osprey bowl. The colours were a good match. Likewise I've seen green frosted examples which look very Bagley in terms of colour and finish. In contrast the two part version has a finer satin finish and does seem to match the Schweig Mueller pieces. Thus I thought this was one of those cases where the same shape was made by different makers.This is not unknown with Bagley (e.g. the wide Wyndham vase, the various bits which match Czech pieces, etc.). The plinth in the mirror set matching the Elf pattern so well also tends to support the Bagley attrubtion.

That said, without any firm evidence such as pattern books or ads, the above is all just speculation...

Yes I think you are right - and it's great to see the blue version, I've never seen their blue to match the green and yellow. 
Thanks for sharing Pete
Fascinating - 1832-1841 and I am sure I'm right on my dating for the creamer, but no match.
However... there are some extremely interesting pieces on there!!  I have some other bits I'm researching and that is a real help.
Interestingly I'd come across a baby blue pair of perfumes that 'might' have been Annathal or Adolfhutte and had been wondering as they had some similarity with the creamer in some ways.  But they aren't on there.
(Also I have no idea if Adolfhutte is the same as Johann Meyr but I'm thinking it is.  I get so absolutely confused with the history of all these makers as their early 19th century names were different to their later names e.g. I 'think' Annathal became owned by Loetz?  I think... don't quote me. 

Thanks so much.  That's a wonderful resource.

Just to add another set into the mix for the September Morn figure, I just purchased this mirror and stand and I added a September Morn figure as I have seen the plinth/vase with such a figure previously, but this is the first time I have seen the mirror. Following on from Nigel's thoughts on this being made by Bagley and having chatted with him regarding this piece and the Posy vase made by Bagley there is a strong resemblance between all the pieces. Any further thoughts on this ??
oh excellent thank you - I think I tried that before but my computer froze so nothing seemed to happen  ::) I have it now.

Thanks :)
well :-)
As soon as (or maybe: if ever) I find more catalogues, they will be published - that's the best I can say...

(Tip: watch out for a Boda w/o year, but probably 30'ies or 40'ies soon... needs to be cleared up)

Quite a lot of leeway I would guess: those two yellow ones have completely different tops
You should see a black DOWNLOAD button on the top right side of the screen, m, which lets you download the whole catalogue - I've done a screenshot of the page showing where the Download button is. Hope it helps. :)
