Glass Trinket Sets / One thing leads to another.......
« Last post by theElench on December 15, 2017, 07:51:26 AM »
After posting on the thread about the Sowerby "Sunray" set I thought I'd try to find a photo of it in pink, as I had claimed to have seen examples.

While searching I came across www.free-stock-illustrations.com "Sowerby Dressing Table Sets".  They didn't have a picture of the Sunray set but have a green set with pots matching GTS "Mystery No. 4" with tray, pots, candlesticks and ring-holder.  Sorry I don't know how to do links [ * ] and as the page is marked with the copy-right symbol and "All rights reserved" am not sure whether I should add a picture here.

[ * ] Mod: URL made clickable - but cannot find target page for "Sowerby"

While checking #4 in the Mysteries section I noticed that the intro. page has an illustration of a previous Mysteries page.  It shows a candlestick with an oval base as Mystery No. 10.  In the current pages this has disappeared, no. 10 is now a different set.  Has the candlestick mystery now been solved?

It looks mass produced to me, you can buy something very similar from Amazon for 7 quid with decorations.

There seem to be a number of different 'signings' including paper labels, we have a few by Golding, this one just has this mark (different piece, same mark )  ;D ;D

Keith, is that vase not dated as well as being signed? My only two items of Okra (both paperweights) are signed Richard Golding and dated - 2007 & 2009.

Wow! That's super, thanks Fred and Chris Maisey for allowing us to use the image here and on GTS.  It's just missing the comb tray!

Glass Paperweights / Re: Maker of mysterious moody paperweight ?
« Last post by gleaming on December 14, 2017, 09:54:03 PM »
Per the facebook discussion of Sanders and Wallace work with Sileda: Andrew Sanders was extremely kind to respond by e-mail that he was not the maker of this paperweight.  He stated that he made perfume bottles and vases for Sileda Ltd. but no weights.
