Below is a similar item being noted as Baccarat circa 1840.  Not sure of subjects though, kinda looks like weird Al and Anthony Weiner.

Glass Paperweights / Old Sulfide ID Help
« Last post by TanToday on November 26, 2014, 09:28:00 PM »
I recently purchased a few "antique sulfides" at auction. Looking for ID confirmation on maker AND a possible identification of the subject contained therein.

Size: 3 1/3" w or 8.37cmw by 5/8"d or 1.72cm
Wt: 6.5 us oz or 184g

Anyone care to chime in with some maker ID and subjects?

British & Irish Glass / Monart BJ is it colour 396?
« Last post by orangeglass on November 26, 2014, 09:20:38 PM »
got this little number - a few little annealing cracks in the base.

I initially thought it was going to be colour 384 but when it arrived I thought not - possibly 396?
It has the orange/yellow rounded "blobs" but also a green that looks like a uranium green (but I don't think it is!) a teal- ish green, bits of cloudy white, aventurine and also a browny orange which are angular "blobs" (technical term ;D) - see close up.

Please can anyone give their ideas on the correct colour code if possible - thanks!

Why are we seeing a Vasart - ish similarity (glad it wasn't just me Sue) :D - is it an early piece do you think, not a decor I have seen before quite like this!

The only thing I've seen that is remotely similar in colour scheme from Ysart is a small-ish Vasart hanging lampshade my brother has. sorry, no pics.
It's nice lit, and works very well as a lampshade - gives a lovely soft, warm light.
Some more pictures of the pale blue crown. Missing its cross , but no other damage other than a couple of tiny chips to the underside of lid.
