Glass / Re: Modern mould blown bottle vase?
« Last post by bat20 on Yesterday at 12:02:32 PM »
Thanks for the replies,I've had a quick skirt around the intoe and I'm seeing the colour and look of neodymium but not the feel of this piece,apart from the sculpture ones,this seems softer and then chuck in an ancient Chinese type rim?

No, it's neodymium that goes greenish or bluish from purple under low energy and fluorescent bulbs

That is manganese, not neodymium. In view of the turned down neck (very much the design vernacular of the tens) I vote for modern decorative glass from India. But as always, I may be wrong.  It happens, you know.

Could it be a 9291 catalogued at 4.5" maybe ?

Glass Paperweights / Re: Murano paperweight with very colourful canes - AVeM?
« Last post by rocco on Yesterday at 09:19:21 AM »
Thank you very much, Alan, Sophie!

Midcentury production seems very likely, then...

Wouldn't the fact that the same canes are found in many AVeM "Tutti Frutti" pieces, be a strong hint towards AVeM as maker?
Here is a vase with the "red cross centre surrounded by 4 dots cane": http://antiquehelper.rfcsystems.com/Full/210/68210_view2_02.jpg
Here a vase with the "5 multicolour dots in orange circle cane": http://antiquehelper.rfcsystems.com/Full/059/68059_view2_02.jpg

They caught my eye as soon as I walked through the door at the auction. I do like this kind of glass. Unfortunately my OH disagrees with me about having glass everywhere 😍 so I am limited as to what I put out on display for the time I have them.
