Hi Sue,
Never heard of Nazeing before but have now found some very similar coloured and shaped items and shall investigate further.
Cheers Mike

Murano & Italy Glass / Re: Murano Glass Lamps....I Think?

Not sure who made them but a friend has a large lamp with similar spiral work but his has silver between lines. It has a Cenedese label on it.

Great buy and possibly 50/60's.

It's a separate registration on there so I'll need to authorise you when you sign up (otherwise we get loads of non-GMB people trying to sign up and that's not what it's for) - so if you use the same username as on here I'll know it's you and approve you straight away.

The seller on Etsy gave permission to use the images shown earlier in this thread. Here is a link to the auction:

I will send a link to this thread to the seller and add an image with label to the appropriate album.

Glass / Whitefriars uncatalogued ?
« Last post by essi on January 19, 2019, 08:57:51 PM »
On my travels if I see Whitefriars single bud vases I always pick them up even if they are quite common. They are still hand made things of great skill.
Today i had to do a double take when i saw this example(patt no 9243?).
It is 16 inches high and made of lead crystal, I think they are normaly made in soda glass.
Have any GMB members seen any other examples of this size Whitefriars bud vase?.
Sorry about the poor photos, i was keen to post this message.

Just the crest or the whole vase?
British & Irish Glass / Re: William Stevens, glass mould maker in Gateshead
« Last post by neilh on January 19, 2019, 08:16:27 PM »
I have been reading up on early pressed glass recently. The stories are settled in naming James Stevens as the key figure, producing moulds for Rice Harris and to some unnamed firms in the USA in the 1830s. His sons were James and William, who moved north to the Ellison glassworks, and then moved back and left the trade. James the elder is buried in Handsworth churchyard in Birmingham, maybe a look at his tombstone, if it is still around or recorded, will help clear things up.
China & Taiwan / Re: Scandinavian look (to me) Chinese made candle holders
« Last post by Anne on January 19, 2019, 08:14:08 PM »
Those are interesting, there is so much glass that comes out of China it's hard to keep up with them, and their production is getting better all the time.
