Glass / Re: unidentified acid etch mark

Thank you so VERY much for the help! Now I am curious why I have a vase made by a perfume atomizer manufacturer. Is there anyone familiar with Franck?

Glass / Re: milk glass jug Sowerby? help please

well that should be an easy surface effect to confirm  -  isn't it supposed to resemble the slightly pitted looks of an orange peel skin??

You would need a strong magnifying glass to see that i think. Just looking at the close-up of the handle i can see some pitting or bumps, not sure.

Clay type soil, so nothing goes too deep. Plus if it's on a hill everything goes down the hill in the end. Same thing happens on beaches, eventually it all ends up in the same place. You'll often see pottery shards and old broken bottles working there way out of a cliff edge.

Thanks for the reply!
It's a little over 6 inches tall and the only place it's not opaque is on the right side where it has those little bubbly extensions; there it thins out and is a bit clear.

Scroll down to about the middle of the page and the mark is shown on some advertising material of the early 1920ies.

Thanks Ivo, China I had not considered. For no good reason it struck me as made fairly recently, one of a pair apparently.

British & Irish Glass / Caithness Stroma decanter - show and tell
« Last post by glassobsessed on August 28, 2015, 08:44:49 PM »
Bought this Stroma decanter this week in a charity shop, the stopper had been separated from the base and priced individually. It took me a while to twig that they belonged together...

Designed by Domhnall OBroin in the early 1960s (OBroin deserves much greater recognition to my mind), 33cm tall. Both the top and base of the stopper are ground and polished.

The only other image of a Stroma decanter I could find online is in the V&A's collection, unfortunately they have misspelt Domhnall OBroin, their example in clear glass: http://collections.vam.ac.uk/item/O249722/stroma-decanter-and-stopper-obroin-domhall/

The art of making birdies is highly developed in China - I have been surprised on several occasions. I found that they often have a mischievous gleam in their beady eyes. So your cockatoo may be from there. But it may also be from Lauscha, of course.
