Glass / Re: Glass Tray with Light Green and Pink coloration of Flowers
« Last post by Fendletruck on November 12, 2018, 09:07:46 PM »
Thank you for the recommendation on "Walther Glas", this looks a lot like the tray I'm looking for:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/Mikasa-Carmen-oblong-tray-platter-crystal-13x6-NIB-Walther-German-crystal-/173635405720

The "Carmen Stollenplatte".
Because the 14" round tray had the longer flowers on it, I thought it was probably the same flower pattern, but now I am seeing that smaller flower and I think I recall that is what it really looked like.

The only bump in the road is the fact that I can't find anything with the colored flowers, all the examples I see are just clear.

Is there a term for colored glass details?

Have a web search on "Walther" glas.
It's German, (hence the single s at the end of glass) and not terribly old. You should be able to find a replacement fairly easily.
I would suggest hunting around a bit, to find the best priced one.

Good luck. :)
It's horrible when you lose something that has come to mean something to you.

Oh I'm so sorry to hear that, aren't people sometimes miserable.

I think it's lovely trying to find a replacement and hopefully it can be identified.

Would it be possible to post an image of the whole item? Sometimes patterns are rare but shapes/models are not and perhaps this might help.

Glass / Glass Tray with Light Green and Pink coloration of Flowers
« Last post by Fendletruck on November 12, 2018, 07:41:22 PM »
As a wedding gift, my wife received a round glass cake tray, and a rectangular glass tray that matched it.

We unfortunately used the rectangular tray at a potluck, and it was stolen....

It was important to my wife, and I'd love to replace it, but I have never seen a one like it before.

We've been married for 5 years, but I don't have a clue how old the tray was.
We aren't even completely sure who we received it from.

I have the larger round tray (which is about 15" diameter) so I hoped to find manufacturer information on it somewhere.
No luck, no info at all. Nothing stamped, no country of origin, no sticker.

I put a napkin behind it for the attached picture because the coloration is very faint, quite difficult to see.
The tray was roughly 15" long and 7" wide, but those dimensions are approximate.

It's possible that this is just a mundane glass tray, maybe nothing too special, but I'm very interested in replacing it, and I don't mind paying several times it's worth to get it.

Thank you for your assistance.

Glass / Re: Is this a Lace makers light aid?

Welcome to the board and thanks for posting your images directly here and enlargable. It is much appreciated.  :)
A lace-maker's light enhancer would certainly seem to be a reasonable assumption to make.
I don't know much about older glass, couldn't possibly give you any help with origins or a maker, but have you tried it out yet with a candle to see if it actually does magnify the light?

I could be wrong.

and I've just realised the pontil mark isn't how I remembered it.  Apologies if I am wrong.

I can't find any connection between Paul Barcroft and Selkirk, which I wanted to, m, because of my opalescent glass use theory.
If Paul Barcroft uses opalescent glass, I'll have to add that in as a potential confounder.  ;D

Hi Sue

I put a small amount of fairy liquid on the rim and just held it in some warm water for a short while. It then released  :) 

Thank you Ross for your tip as well, I will remember these tips for the future.
