Glass / Re: Crinoline Lady made of woven glass. Murano?
« Last post by Ivo on Yesterday at 09:55:47 PM »
Verre tresse is a speciality of Liege , Belgium and of Nevers, france - not murano. If you found it here it is most likely from Belgium. Modern producers nclude China. These are lampworked from glass rods and do not require a serious investment, so there are many possible small producers.

Glass / Crinoline Lady made of woven glass. Murano?
« Last post by Jeke on Yesterday at 09:48:27 PM »
This is an extremely delicate crinoline lady made of glass thread. The basket she is holding hooks off. She is 13 cm tall. Is this a Murano figure and is there any age to it? I can't find anything quite like it on the web..
Thanks

Glass / square based glass jar help please.
« Last post by brucebanner on Yesterday at 09:03:11 PM »
This is another recent find, i'm wondering what it was used for as the inner rim is ground so i'm assuming the lid is missing, it has the feel of an old salt. The base has chips and lots of wear and the inner surface especially towards the base is very worn with staining the type you find in decanters. There are also several inclusions within in the glass both black and white.

It's 4 inches in height and  inches square across the base.

Thanks Chris.

I have recently picked up a pair of these and sold one, i'm keeping this for myself but would like to know a bit more about it if any one can help please. It has bubbles and inclusions within the glass and a snapped pontil with a hollow stem.

It's 4 1/4 inches in height  2 3/4 inches across the rim and base.

Thanks regards Chris.

Although I have to say I would have thought more modern, mid 20th century.

looks like the same design, found others on some antique sites with red trails listed as Edwardian. Older than I thought perhaps.
