In 1878 they exhibited:

    Colored glass, coated on both sides, with another color in the middle; the two outside coats engraved, thereby showing three colors.
    Panels of glass mosaic, as samples of their enamels.
    Decorated Venetian glass ware.
    Vases, painted, with the necks ornamented with colored beads.
    Opal clock dial, with the hour-marks etched.
    Imitations of various precious stones, cut in cameos and diamonds.
    Colored beads, plain and depolished.
    Sheets of plated colored glass, as well as cylinders in all colors.
    A fan of spun glass in several colors.
    Etruscan vase colored with chrome green.
    Two large dishes decorated with their Chinese white.
    Enamels on cast and wrought iron.
    Chemical glass ware for laboratories.
    White and colored chimneys for light-houses.

Thanks Anne and Michael,
Anne I think you're right, thanks for the previous links.
There's another photo - it's a clear ripple vase (no tinge of colour)... sounds like Bagley! :)
Hi and welcome :)

Hi Sam, welcome to the board!

Thank you for the clear base pic, but I guess we will need a pic of the whole piece as well :)

Glass / Vase identification - heavy textured vase with flower embossed on the base
« Last post by SamSnow on December 17, 2014, 06:57:44 PM »
I'm trying to identify a chunky heavy textured vase.
It's clear, tapers out slightly, has a bark-like surface texture, rounded off rim.
But the base is curious as it has a 3-D flower, like the tudor rose, embossed on its base.
Any ideas what it is and how old ??? It's 17cm tall.
Thank you! Sam  :)

British & Irish Glass / Re: Stourbridge threaded small jug

Great link Christine. The pieces you have labelled possible Richardson possible pieces are the most similar threading to my piece actually. As you suggest the application of threading varied widely. An under plate I have has threading damage and you could nearly pick it off with a fingernail. The piece in this thread by contrast, has threading bonded to the main body so tightly, it could never come off. The sides of the jusg even has tiny scratches suggesting somebody tried to use it erroneously as a matchstriker... still no damage to the threading... I will try to posy a picture of the underplate with delicate type threading....
