I'm not terribly "au fait" with accurate whitefriars colours - but the little bowl looks very Whitefriars-y.
(I know there are other makers of little bowls like this, although I'm not sure who.)
I have heard the way to tell a genuine Wfs one is if you can hook your fingertips under the rim a little bit.
Finding that out might require a bit more digging. :)

Interesting reading that article, it suggests that this etched version is later in date that the cut and etched version.

The two for comparison:


Yes, that was what was confusing me. Any idea of the date for the etched only version?
Glass / Peach (Golden) Martini Glass Identification Please...
« Last post by Not-a-Clue on Yesterday at 01:39:42 PM »
Hi all,

Can anyone advise me as to who the manufacturer of this glass is please. I believe it is a Martini glass but not sure. It is a goldy peach colour and appears to have a slight lustre. Glass is incredibly thin (flimsy).

Height is approx 18.5cm and max diameter of bowl is approx 13cm.

Thanks  :)

This sort of base finish is more common on Chinese pieces now, but if you've had it a while, it's unlikely.
What about Polish? Something like Svaja or even LSA importers? Or the Cia group importers? (Although I think LSA importers might have baulked at that base finish.)

Hi, thanks for the advice on photographing glass patterns. I will do as suggested and post the photos a little later.  :)

Hi Not-a-Clue,

To show the pattern clearly try placing a black or very dark piece of paper (or cloth) in the bowl such that only the pattern on one side is seen.
Hi Fred,
Itís unmarked, funnily enough hidden at the back of a shelf my folks have the frosted butter dish thatís already in the gallery but never completely identified. Actually a chap from the glass fair pointed out it was in the Jenny Thompson book which Iíd overlooked, he also said very few of these pieces are marked.
Cheers Mike

It looks like it belongs with those old dinner services that can be found. Like the tazza Keith posted here recently.

Is it really green? This was not at all what I expected to see from your title - I was expecting something quite modern and bright.  ;D,68252.msg379640.html#msg379640

so I-thingies are not the same as e-thingies?
but they do the same sorts of thingies, don't they?
I did get a giggle at uni when some idiot lecturer started belthering nonsense about "e-motions".
I reckoned they should be flushed round the bend.
There's really no point in trying to explain any of it to me - but thanks for trying, Anne. I don't understand enough to follow it. I'm just not compatible with the techno age. It mystifes me.
The more advanced it gets, the more I am cut off.
