Dear Chris,

thank you. Herewith photos of base. I never considered Venetian as the base seems typically Victorian...I'll go and search for some now to compare.

Meanwhile here they are:

Kind regards

See also my large unsigned vase which has very similar "shield prunts" as Roy's bottle, but generally has decoration tying in well with signed Royo work.
Thanks, carlovision for the explanations about the original text and image.
Thanks, Allan for the responses and explanations.
Thanks, Anne for sorting out the merge of two threads.

All I would add to Allan's comments about Badge Weights of this type is that, as a serious collector of Paul Ysart weights, I hesitate when I see any similar examples.

I have two in my collection, one a regular domed weight and the other with the weight set atop a footed pedestal. The pedestal example was purchased from a former dealer and its provenance was said to be "from a member of the Ysart family". It is shown in my article on Paul Ysart weights etc. produced in 1999 / 2000 (scroll down nearly half way through the article). Since then, I have decided that I am unable to accurately judge the authenticity of any similar weight, with or without a pedestal, as being definitely by Paul Ysart.

In my article, I state that the ultraviolet tests of my pedestal weight "indicate Moncrieff factory". However, after many more years of UV checks on a variety of weights I can confirm that the UV results under longwave and shortwave bulbs often show no difference between "early Ysart" items and items that could be from a European source.

The only real clue is, as Allan touched on, the "glass quality and frit style", with some probable Paul Ysart ones (such as my pedestal example), showing very little wreathing in the clear glass and very few air bubbles around or over the encased badge.

very unexciting I know - a small cream or milk jug with the No. down low on the inside wall.           I'm sure this isn't already on the Board's Registration archive, so a small addition to the list of designs from a very well known Sunderland maker.     circa 4" in height.
Glass / Overmeyer Trident Pull
« Last post by seford on August 22, 2017, 07:55:01 PM »
I unearthed a matching pair of Overmeyer glass pulls.  They do not have the metal sleeve.  From what I am finding the Trident Pull is very rare.  I found info on this site stating he is not a fan of the Trident.  I would love to know any info anyone might have about use, old advertisements, old pics of someone using them, and of course the value.

Any help would be appreciated.
