Glass / Re: Bohemian/Czech enamelled vase but what date?

My apologies SAWIVI, I am only now revisiting this topic. Your photos are very interesting thank you, similarities with the two vases far right in your second photo, especially the feet.

This one is described as Lobmeyr:

Another example, this time 31cm tall. Revisiting my comment re the colours, much of Vienna's Art Nouveau was pretty vibrant.

British & Irish Glass / Re: Early Pressed Glass Tea Caddy

I don't think it's irreleveant at all. The man on the video is completely wrong.
It is a mixing bowl from a tea caddy, not a sugar bowl, tea caddies didn't have sugar bowls. So, FB, you've identified and illustrated the correct function of the piece.  ;D

I'm curious about your pics, Alastair.
What is it you do with them that allows the first blow up from the thumbnail, to blow up more?
I get a + sign that appears and hovers over it. It's a wonderful feature.  :)

Iím not sure if this confuses the post so please remove if it does Iím just showing what early caddies had as there glass mixing bowl.And definitely not for sugar.The caddy is pre 1820 and has a beautifully cut glass bowl which slides into a velvet lined aperture in between two caddies for the green and black tea.A thing of real beauty and showing the value of tea in this period.
Although Iím with Chopin coffee is king or queen depending.

I wonder if this should be in the Paperweights section for the information of a wider audience?
The forum description for Market Place includes: "To be fair to all members, posts offering items for sale in other forums will be moved here even if the post includes an ID request."

When ID is uncertain, it is best to ask for the help within the relevant forum before putting the item up for sale.
