Thanks Mat, great info.

I have added a link to this thread from each of the other two you have mentioned. Maybe we will need to put this thread into the Archives section?

Glass / Re: Bowl marked Glass Works 1984

Welcome to the GMB.  :)

I can't really offer much help, but it does look like studio glass, possibly British, so knowing those glassworks in operation around 1984 is a sure-fire starting point.

Glass Paperweights / Re: 7 Half Spoke Millefiori Paperweight ? Paul Ysart
« Last post by KevinH on September 30, 2014, 12:09:31 PM »
Additional info that may help to decide if a weight is by Paul Ysart or not ...

1. If the central motif is a 3- or 4-cane group (i.e. without an obvious central cane) then the item is extremely unlikely to be by Paul Ysart. This applies to any millefiori design, not just "spoke patterns".

Paul did use a motif of a central 6-cane group (3 larger and 3 smaller canes, alternating) but the 3- and 4-cane group is a regular feature of Ysart Brothers (Vasart) and later Vasart Ltd items.

2. In a weight with twist canes, if the twists are "ribbons" (i.e. twisted flattened canes, usually with 2 or 3 colours set symmetrically) then the item is more likely to be Ysart Brothers (Vasart) or later Vasart Ltd and following on through Stratearn, Perthshire Paperweights etc.

Paul Ysart used some "ribbon twists", mostly in conjunction with regular twists canes (in such as larger spaced concentric designs with twists used as part of a full concentric ring) or as part of a "scrambled" or "mixed cane and twists" design. Also, of the ones I have seen, all of the ribbon twists have been "chunky" and had thick threads of brightly contrasting colour.

Glass / Re: russian green art deco? bowl

Panel cutting was very much en vogue in the 1930s and there were many companies who indulged in it - most of which unknown and unfamous.  I very much doubt if you'll be able to pin a name to it....

I seem to remember that this is from a decorator company located in Milano - and cheap it ain't. Of course I cannot now find the reference...

Glass / Three Horse's heads - One V.Nason; the other two?
« Last post by David E on September 30, 2014, 11:45:39 AM »
I have three horse heads and the middle one is easily identified as V.Nason, possibly 1990s. The other two have no signature or label, so I wonder if anyone can help with IDing them? All have smooth, polished base.

Turqouise: 9.5cm tall
V.Nason: 14cm, included bubble and flecks of aventurine. Circular plastic label, signed to base
Grey: 18cm, frothy bubble inclusions.

Is the grey one FM Ronneby Konstglas/Marcolin? Can't say I've ever seen frothy glass in a Marcolin figurine before.

Glass / IS this kralik glass
« Last post by glasslover62 on September 30, 2014, 11:27:38 AM »
hi, i bought this fabulous art nouveau vase recently.  it is very iridescent , the feet are deep blue with a purple flash  and the body is a strong green colour with a trailed  decoration in the same blue. this weighs approx 340 gr and is 16 cm tall.

If anyone can give me an indication of is this right for the period and a rough idea of a realistic price it would be fantastic.

This has no damage anywhere that i can find.
