Glass / Re: Any information about my controlled bubble vase

Hi, I have split out your other vase into its own thread as different ID requests in one thread can get confusing. Hope somebody can help with info soon.

Glass / Re: Vase, Gallé style, possible w/ signature. Info wanted

Thanks for the revised pics Charlotte.

I suspect that the vase is of the Chinese "Yalle" [or "Yall"] variety (an imitation of "Galle"). The signature on yours is not easy to determine but it does have elements of the "Yalle" ones.

For example: Galle Cameo Glass? - ID = Yalle

Another thread discussing a queried Galle vase, and mentioning the Chinese "Yalle" types is:
IS THIS GALLE REAL OR FAKE?

I checked every page, concentrating on the knop in the stem and nothing was even similar.

It hasn't got a hollow stem unfortunately, feels quite heavy and solid.

Glass / Re: question re matching numbers engraved on decanters and stoppers

'I'll have another look at Andy McConnell's book to see if it helps at all with this question.'


thank you :)
It's entirely possible I'm completely out on my dating and that both 'could' be c. 1880 ish.  But both the glass and the enamelling decoration and style are good for the 1820s.  It's not important, both were bought for decoration in my dining room  ;D so are not for sale.  But I'm curious.

Glass / Re: question re matching numbers engraved on decanters and stoppers
« Last post by Paul S. on December 08, 2016, 06:59:28 PM »
as I began re-reading this thread, I found myself unable to support Neil's comment - somewhere near the beginning - where Neil commented that 'matching Nos.' started in the "early Victorian period" -  so we're talking here of c. 1840 ish    --          I can only say that, having seen zillions of these things, this is not my experience at all.
I honestly don't think I've ever seen these Nos. on a bottle older than c. 1880 - 1890.
Many years back, whilst on hols. in north Wales, I encountered a decanter collector - who was about to make a purchase of a bottle - and rather flippantly I said "don't forget to check the matching Nos." - for which I was criticized heavily.         His reply was that in the earlier part of the C19 they didn't go in for such things.
From memory Andy McConnell's book doesn't give any useful dating on this practice of matching Nos.

On the other hand the digits or initials of someone's name, enamelled on the stopper and base of a bottle, may have a much older history, and probably do only refer to the pattern of the piece, or simply indicate the signature of the decorator  -  and is likely to have been more common on pieces from eastern Europe than elsewhere.        On the few pieces I've bothered to look at, I seemed to get the impression that stoppers for bottles with enamelled matching Nos. etc. didn't fit very well.             Perhaps it was just me looking at cheap Bohemian bottles ;)

I'll have another look at Andy McConnell's book to see if it helps at all with this question.

Hello Ben, if your glass has a hollow stem it could be FT31 Manhattan suite. Made from 1968/1971.
