Glass Paperweights / Re: Definition and Distinctions
« Last post by A to Z on Yesterday at 03:09:02 AM »
 Having seen that 61 people read my post, I began to think that
maybe 61 people were of the opinion that's something I could look up on my own.
I tried, I really did--and I sort of half "got it."

   Your response is clear, very much appreciated and will always be
remembered as my "first" :-)

Thanks!

I'm probably not the best person to offer an answer but I will give my two cents anyway.  Etching would involve altering just the surface of the glass through acid, sandblasting etc, resulting in an opaque surface.  Engraved, cut, and incised would seem to all pretty much be the same with regards to glass being removed resulting in deeper designs into the surface.  Engraving would indicate cutting that results in letter, numbers, symbols, etc. Cutting and incised being any number of designs or patterns.  There you have it!!  :-0

Assuming the numbering is chronological, I'm assuming it dates to the early 1930s, comparing it to one of the examples listed.


I believe that this, putting a date on this bowl, is done according to the signature... certain signatures refer to certain periods, certain models were produced longer than others, but you should be able to work that out via the links.

Brilliant- many thanks Anne.

Those links are invaluable.

Worth a polish indeed.

Thanks!

Scandinavian Glass / Kosta Vase-Need help identifying designer and age
« Last post by Beccat1974 on January 30, 2015, 11:05:46 PM »
Hi All! I have this vase with the original, clear "Kosta, Sweden" label. It appears to be unsigned with the exception of what looks like a hand etched "A" or "LA" or "1A"....or they could just be scratches and not deliberate markings at all. It stands just about 8"H. I would love to know who the designer is and the approximate age of the piece. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance. Rebecca

Hi Anne,I think Rouget is red mullet and Rene could well have been told by the fish monger that he was buying mullet for his pre design sketches and for me it only goes to show what a great eye he had,but I think he bought some gurnard ;)

Murano & Italy Glass / Uranium glass poodle
« Last post by brucebanner on January 30, 2015, 10:23:35 PM »
Any thought's on this one, age or maker, I think it might be Murano looking at others on google but it looks brand new with no base wear or damage.

It's 7 1/2 inches in height and 6 inches in length.

Regards Chris.

Glass / Re: Antique Lustres - Help with ID if it is Possible

the 'hole' in the top of these is narrow and peg shaped I think rather than as wide as that in yours, but this is a pair with a turned down rim and the glass 'shade' in the top just for reference.

I still wonder if these are French.

That's the same no? Rouget in French =  mullet in English... when I translate gurnard it comes up as rouget... ??? My head's starting to spin...
