Another find, this time a whopper, 12 inches tall nearly 3 inches higher than the usual in this shape, ;D ;D ;D
Thanks for adding the maker
And to Christine for adding the link.  I suspect that might solve quite a few glass queries looking through their designs

Glass Paperweights / Re: Paul Ysart Fish Weight?
« Last post by Wyman on February 11, 2016, 03:33:04 PM »
Thanks much for that reply, Alan, and sorry about the late reply as my internet was down yesterday.

Mr. Manson Snr also confirmed your description about the weight.  In addition, he said that:
"Yes I can confirm that this weight is a Paul Ysart Harland weight, I can also confirm that the lampwork and the weight were both made by Paul Ysart.  David Hurry and myself both worked at Harland in the nineteen seventies but I can tell by the shape of the lampwork fish that it was made by Paul, he always made his sandfish as he called them shorter and fatter if that's a proper description."

He also noted the amusing price inflation, of course:
"Out of interest the 0riginal price of that particular weight was 12.00..."

Ha! Talking about irrational exuberance.

Glass / Re: Lampshade - Latticino/Filigrana - Cranberry - Clear Pink/White Latticino

Dear M,

thank you, remarkable, well found, great spotting.   :D

The Boda vase " filigrani " is very similar in construction though, in the vase, is a cased example; stunning. The lampshade seems " single skin " ( approx 2 mm thick ) and you can feel the filigrani form within the glass. It's not to the usual high quality/purity of glass atypical of Kosta with an area of sooty deposit within the glass and also the rim/mouth is slightly irregular...saying that I have a Kjellmann piece which is a little ropey too!

Re the " fitter rim " it could easily be both a hanging lampshade or even with a grubscrew fitment, fit an angle lamp.  It doesn't feel like an oil lamp shade from others I've seen however I'm not an expert on oil lamps.  :)

Kind Regards

Glass / footed dish cranberry
« Last post by Ivo on February 11, 2016, 09:47:20 AM »
This here footed dish is 14.5 cm high and has a diameter of 15 (that is circa 6"). It has seeds and bubbles; the rim is folded inward and the foot was hand made: no clapper was used and as a result the foot is definitely unround.  The stem was made seperately, and there is a neatly finished pontil mark.

Can anyone imagine a date for this?

British & Irish Glass / Re: Cut glass vase--interesting shape--any ideas re identity

Hi, sorry for dragging this post up from the depths, however I've seen a John Walsh Opaline vase with a similar shape to mine on eBay and was wondering whether it could be a JWW cut glass equivalent ......Or am I clutching at straws---again!
