France / Re: Informations about Portieux
« Last post by ClŠudio on May 03, 2016, 02:06:59 PM »
I suspect that some moulds from Portieux were used by a brazilian glass maker.
Here in Brazil we find pieces with the same colors found in Europe, some are marked with Portieux name and some are not.
But we still find carnival pieces atributed to Portieux that i aways thought it was strange.
In the next days i will writte about it and will show some photos too.
For now, thanks a lot Ivo! It was helpfull!
And i will be back very soon with the photos!

No UV here I'm afraid.
Hi Chriss, the image below is from a Monart dual lamp fitting, which is a type of fitting that will possibly do for your lamp.
Or alternatively you could get one made with new parts (the link below) from this company.

I have made two dual fittings for two of my own Monart lamps and one for board member Roberta.
The problem with old original lamp fittings they were not earthed ie. two core (electrician's hat) and cannot be used safely. Nowadays all metal lamp holders must be three core.
Glass / Re: Gullaskruf ?

I can see where Lisa is coming from with the suggestion of Gullaskruf  -  this one has a strong resemblance to the design features of their 'Water Drop' vase, although there are differences in shape and size.             According to the book, if it is Gullaskruf then it should have a signature of the word Sweden.

My own opinion is that the colours of this one are a tad too dark for the Water Drop vase, and the clear casing is a bit on the mean side  -  is the base polished flat?

It might also be a Czech vase from Harrachov, designed by Milan Metelak.

The height is 22,5 cm,1 kilo.
Thank you,Lisa

Have you checked it under UV/ I would guess Bohemian and say it's not sprayed

My feeling is that these are Japanese and 20C; maybe I saw a labelled one once. Definitely not that old.
