Glass Market Place / Re: Swingewood - Great Great Grandson

Not an easy beast to photograph!
It is tiny, my eyesight is not what it was, and even with my glasses on I can't tell what is going to come out or not. My apologies for taking so long to get this done - and for doing it so badly. I can answer any questions you may have about it, which might help you decide if it's your great-great-grandfather's work. :)

British & Irish Glass / Re: Non catalogued Monart bowl ?

Top one could be Vasart... then so too could the second which would make that an early Vasart when they still had the original Kugler colours available.

The vase was originally listed without the saleroom notice. The later notice means they got egg on their faces once someone told them. The original description just assumed it was something special and hence the estimate. Jackson style  8)

The way the metal holder was made should have been a red flag as it is clearly modern.

British & Irish Glass / Re: picture library for T/Webb colours.

No plates in the 77 catalogue I digitised. Cannot access the earlier catalogues (30s and 1957) right now but they do state tableware as one of their products so plates should be there! Glanced at all the Webb material I have digitised but no plates. Did notice Duroven (Their Pyrex version) in 1949, quite distinctive designs in opaque 'Snow White'.

Scandinavian Glass / Orrefors Nils Landberg Candleholder (?)
« Last post by horochar on Yesterday at 06:11:48 PM »
Hoping someone can help me to identify this really nicely designed candleholder.  Measures 9 inches tall.  Surprisingly heavy (lead crystal?).

Thanks,
Charles.

I'm still learning - now I know both Cenedese and Seguso used logs.

Got my first attempt wrong, this is more accurate:

On page 163 Sklo Union Art Before Industry there are four variations of this label, yours matches the typeface of the label captioned 60s-70s.

Is your rooster solid glass or hollow?

Standing on a log is fine, these Seguso beauties do: https://picasaweb.google.com/Johnmj100/GlassFromMurano#5628382581291330786

It certainly is enough to wake anybody up! ;)

It appears to be standing on a branch-like bit of glass, as were the Cenedese birds Jakgene had repaired...
I haven't a clue if that is any indication of anything, but the high quality of work in this little rooster would not rule Cenedese out.

The auction does say "AMENDED"...

is this another word we should look out for in listings?
I think in this case they mean the estimate was amended and not a term referring to the condition of the vase.
The estimate imho was way over the top.
It looks like it's up side down? Is that correct?

Carolyn
It is the correct way up, a link to what the vase should look like.
