Art Deco or even older i believe... 10inch 25cm in height.... and ideas?

Glass / Re: William Walker flask shaped jugs ?
« Last post by Scott13 on August 14, 2017, 11:47:18 AM »

Hi, just found one of William Walker's jugs - similar to the smaller one of mine.

So it has to be his signature !

There's also an interesting piece about him under " Artist Details ".

British & Irish Glass / Re: Allister Malcolm bowl for show.

I have tried and tried but I cannot photograph his Platinum pieces. They're three dimensional and just don't work in 2D.
The vase I have in the same design as your bowl is one I do actually use for flowers if I'm ever stuck with them.  :)

Your pics are nicely posted to the board, but sadly, they don't blow up when I click on them.

I'm still on xp, can't cope with anything more complicated, I think we tried the 8 thingy but it just crashed everything and we had to revert.
Paintshop pro works for me. There are step by step instructions for that in the link.
I don't use any of the others, so I'm afraid I cannot help with them. I'm a total technosaurus.
I do appreciate not having to practise my yoga though, I'm not up to it today. ;D


You can add 4 images per post! Just click on the "more attachments" bit under the browse box, and another browse box will appear.
(I learned what little techie stuff I do know, in order to post here on this forum. Glass drove me to it.  8))

Glass / Are these items Powell
« Last post by Mike Francis on August 14, 2017, 03:32:08 AM »
Has anyone seen items like these before. Both are circa 1900, the vase showing considerable age.
The metal frame on the conical piece has bee very unsympathetically restored. There are signs that it would have had finials on the top of the vertical elements, and it has been buffed and lacquered. It is probably arts and crafts, and both pieces of glass have highly polished pontils. I purchased these items 35 odd years apart, and the colour of the metal matches to my eye, once the diamond molding on the conical piece is taken into account. Both pieces show Powell like features, but I have never seen this amber in a documented Powell shape.
All guesses welcome.
Mike Francis.

This imaged upside down, otherwise balancing on the fitting.
