Glass Paperweights / ID : Is this really a Paul Stankard Paperweight?
« Last post by incazzatonero on Yesterday at 07:56:26 PM »
I have found on ebay:
http://www.ebay.de/itm/261563614409?_trksid=p2059216.m1431.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
It looks like Paul Stankard but is it true?
PS Cane could be Patrick Stern!
Any opinions please.

Glass / atomiser for attribution please.

I'm no good at coloured glass, but like to add the occasional piece to the perfume/atomiser collection.
No marks on this one - some wear, so could be 30 - 40 years old perhaps, and was wondering if it was possibly something from R/Brierley or I.O.W. perhaps.
Quite heavy for its size and very heavily cased in clear, and the gold foil inclusions give it a good sparkle in the light  - about 130 mm tall (c. 5").
Hope someone will recognize the colourway, and thanks for looking :)

Glass / Re: Crackle glass jug green handle and foot.
« Last post by Paul S. on Yesterday at 07:22:41 PM »
crackle is very common, and as Christine is always reminding us - jugs are limitless and very difficult to pin down.             Does the green glow by any chance.?
Cone shaped pieces were still being made I think in the 1950's, so a shape that has a long history, but certainly one that was popular at the height of the deco fashion.          If this were from the 1930's, I'd suggest there should be a fair amount of wear in view of the utility nature of the item.

I suspect this is a non-starter as regards attribution, but you never know. :)

Hi all,this jug is 10" high with polished pontil and a nice ring,to me it looks art deco,but the funny thing is it wouldn't surprise me if it was far more recent,you can feel wear when you drag your finger nail along the base,i know jugs are tricky but just in case, many thanks.

Right! I was notified via email by a kindred spirit who even managed to find the original photograph:

So the wizzard of dribble it is!

Glass / Isle Of Wight Glass?
« Last post by RoyJ99 on Yesterday at 06:41:57 PM »
Picked up this small vase, calling it that but suspect it may actually be a perfume bottle minus the stopper, from a second hand dealer for a few pence.  Could it be Isle Of Wight? No markings to the base. The glass is iridescent which I don't think comes over clearly in the pictures.

Surely it's got to be the legendary Sir Stanley Matthews in his Stoke City kit - he played for them on and off from 1932 to 1965. There were plenty of commemoratives produced in his lifetime.

Glass Paperweights / Re: CCMSA pontil stamp is forwhom?
« Last post by Wuff on Yesterday at 05:31:07 PM »
Already several years ago I had copied an image of the same stamp (Nr.7 1984), likely from ebay - where the weight was described as being produced by one of the Zimmermans.

If you search the net you'll also find:

There is a backstamp mark that reads CCMSA No.1 1978.

CCMSA Pear Shaped Art Glass Paperweight light green with bulbous effect in middle. 5 1/2" tall X 3" wide. In excellent condition no chips, cracks or scratches. marked CCMSA 1980 No.3 on bottom. Substantial piece weighs almost 2 lbs.

Blown Art Glass Paperweight White Floral Trumpets Signed CCMSA 6 (no year mentioned).

This looks like an annual event, first organised in 1978 - and there are quite a few organisations with CCMSA as acronym. Still doesn't tell us who made the weight(s).

Thank you both for the information!!! That is great news. What date would you give this dish? Late 1800's? How can I determine what the dish is worth?
