Glass Market Place / Re: Christmas Tree Lamp-work paperweight ? Caithness
« Last post by Alsretro on April 22, 2018, 08:54:55 PM »
Ach well. Would be very grateful if you could email me an image from the catalogue. Maybe I was just being too hopeful but as it says on the listing, the same source as some quality Whitefriars and Caithness weights in the past and the the outline and measurements are akin to some Caithness weights such as this https://www.jamespirie.com/brands/caithness/limited-edition-paperweights/woodland-seasons-winter.html Thanks again for the advice.

I have checked the Chinese catalogue I have that shows these items and the colours and making match for all parts including the multi-colour tree inside. There were two sizes (but actual size is not stated) and they had "typical" Chinese three-footed, pierced wooden stands as well.

I think it is Chinese.

Similar ones, using powdered glass rather than true overlay technique, were certainly produced back in 1999/2000.

Glass / Re: Skrdlovice Vase?
« Last post by JohnM on April 22, 2018, 05:12:32 PM »
Back in 2010, we didn't have access to the Skrdlovice pattern books.

I thought that might be the case. I started collecting about 2 years ago so that I've been spoiled by all the wonderful resources - including this site - which are now available. I agree that it's a very attractive vase. I was lucky enough to find one which had been misattributed.

Glass / Can anyone id this black cased vase - possibly Murano?
« Last post by seanduxbury on April 22, 2018, 05:00:32 PM »
Hi All.  Hope someone can help.  I found this piece of blacked cased glass i the North West of England.  Large controlled bubbles with many small bubbles as well.  The base is flat and polished.  Measures 10 cms tall by 9.5 cm in diameter at the widest point and weighs a massive 1.3 kgs.  Any help would be much appreciated.
