They used this same technique to decorate the inside of many snuff bottles as well. I doubt they sandblasted it though, probably etched with acid.
British & Irish Glass / Is this a Ronald Stennett Willson Vase?
« Last post by seanduxbury on Yesterday at 02:24:38 PM »
Hi All.  Hope someone can help me ID this small vase.  I found it recently with the remnants of a paper label on the base which I am 99% certain reads KING'S LYNN CRYSTAL HAND MADE ENGLAND.  Unfortunately even with my best magnifying glass I cannot find a signature anywhere and the only references I can find to identifying RSW work through a label talks about KING'S LYNN GLASS not CRYSTAL.  Also the examples of paper labels I have found look nothing like the label on this vase

It measures 16 cms tall and is 5 cms at the rim and 5.5 cms at the base and weighs 140 gms.

It is (in my opinion) attractive with swirls of amber that sweep down from the rim to the base,  At the rim these are quite elongated but as they get to the base them are much more compact and almost give the glass a textured appearance (almost 'scale-like).  There is a blemish at the top where one of the amber stretched 'scales' appears to have not taken and has left an opaque frosted area.  I'm assuming this is a blemish that has happened at the time of manufacturing rather than later damage

Any help would be much appreciated

Looks very similar to the work of Pardeep Sodera of Obsidian Glass, too!

Glass / Need help with identification on this vase

Picked it up at a flea market yesterday, and felt that it was some Kedelv piece from his time in Flygsfors, but when I got home I wasn´t so sure anymore. The vase is 29cm high.

It's really good to see such places opening and giving the potential small business a chance.

I wish you and the rest of the stall owners and the whole enterprise the very best.  ;D
