Kev, what did you think of the doorknob comment in the V&A notes?

I suppose it could be Ribbons. I'm not completely au fait with later IoWSG.
I replied to you, because I had a paperweight which looked a perfect match for your bottle. It's Christine's now, but I've tracked down her images of it.
I was absolutely convinced it was IoWSG, just not sure of which range, or it might be experimental.
Your bottle is the right shape and style, which helps.  :)

They did experiment before producing a range. and pieces got sold from the artist's shelves at the studio.
There are plenty of non-standard bits of IoWSG around.  :)
I have a very large conical bottle in the same design.  :)
Charlie Meaker did train at IoWSG for a while, I assume that was where he learned how to work with silver foil, I don't know where it was he made these though.
He ended up being the director of a large Scandanavian glass company, working outside the uk, but sadly, he is no longer with us. He died not long ago.

The blue in these pieces is not one that was used at IoWSG.
I do like these pieces. Bold and early British Studio glass, by a significant maker. 8) 8) 8)

(It's fun finding stuff you've forgotten about, and seeing it with new eyes, isn't it?  :-* )

This is a lovely beast indeed Lustrousstone,  and I think you are correct,  I do not think it is A. Seguso or Bianco Nero.   I wonder if it is in the Murano Zoo?.... worth a look to see. I will do some investigating for you Malwine and see if I can find more information for you. :)

Definitely Leerdam adam20. I collect these elephants, and other Leerdam animals.   
I have several ellies if you are still regretting it m!  PM me. :)
I also have the deer, the owl and the donkey.... but there are many I do not yet have.
Still collecting, I think they are lovely.

Thanks Sue,

I have had in the past paperweights and also a small conical bottle but both have had a deeper background colour. The mirror effect is stronger on the paperweights, when I say mirror I mean the strong iridescent effect you find on Okra or Loetz.

Kind Regards

Thanks Sue, hadn't considered that, I have found artist that designed this range, only took a year and half !  ::)  sent her an email and await a response,  ;D ;D

Bless ya, Sue  :D

Iain was getting it out of the box and was totally shocked at the weight of it. It is now out of the way on top of the display cupboard. It hasn't seen the light of day since I moved to my first pub in 2010  ::) Now we are settled in our own home, the glass is out! I didn't know I had sooooooooo much. 8)

oooh, I wanted to get in with the id of Charlie Meaker first.  Pout.  ;)

It is, no doubt about it at all. :)
