I didn't expect it to be uranium but wanted to rule out VSL, as burgundy over uranium is one of their combos
Glass Paperweights / Re: Please ID this odd paperweight
« Last post by SophieB on Yesterday at 08:02:32 AM »
Hi there,

Welcome to the GMB.

Without markings those weight are really difficult to identify. Quite a lot of abstract paperweights have been made since the 1960s (the decade that saw the first abstract paperweights at Caithness) and from so many sources... I do not recognise this design at all.

Can you tell us what the base look like or even better post a picture of it? Even though there are no markings, the 'look' of the base can be informative.

No problem I have a 'forato' bowl and stumbled across the term when trying to find a maker for it or at least the possible country it was made. Most of them seem to be made in murano

I agree with Staircase in this topic, the more I search the more can I narrow in Murano.
I bought it in hope of being a Murano piece, it had many attributes in common with them.
My search does not stop here, my search can go on for tens of years and suddenly you find the one you look for...... ;D
Thank you all, if I find it I will tell you.

Ps. I post two pictures from a Murano hole from a signed I found, it looks the same both outside and inside.

Wow Roy, well done you! Stunning set of glasses. I will contact Fieldings, thank you, great idea. 😊😊😊
There are some really interesting techniques and ideas shown here, on the Ukraine Fashion week page, of glass items:

I don't know if they are all Ukrainian but I think they must be so.

They remind me a tiny bit of the Jiri Suhajek pieces for B.A.G. but a little more 'rustic' in look if you like:

Hi, I know nothing about Ukrainian glass  :o

However, I have a small catalogue of pieces produced in the 1950s 1960s and 1970s (and some much earlier) from an exhibition.  They are kind of 'folk art' pieces in the sense that I feel they are peculiar to their culture if you like.
There are some similarities. There are a couple with the very red glass, the thickness of the rims and also lots of applied handles, pincer stuff and repetitive bobble type curls applied, not dissimilar. 

I can't explain, just something about them - as though yours is a more refined version of that 'look'.

Here is one I have - mine is the amber one -,39233.msg361034.html#msg361034

do you see what I mean about the similarity with the pink piece I have pictured from the catalogue.  Difficult to explain, but the shape, the small handle on the side, the two colour idea. 
Anyway, I thought it was worth mentioning just in case  :)
Probably just me Sue -  I think in my head that I've seen quite  a few vases similar to those on the first link and immediately thought likely made in China.  Especially the ones with quite a thick white interior.

I donít know anything about Ukranian glass, it is not very common in Sweden.
Everything is possible and I will look at it too.
In my first quick search I did not find anything near but I will try more😀
