Glass Paperweights / Re: Painted paperweight. Old Chinese?

Mod: Because of the different technique, and the possibly different country of origin of the weight, I have split out these posts (form the recent "Old Chinese?" entry) to form a new thread.

New Zealand & Australia Glass / Re: Peter Reynolds vase

Fabulous pieces and pictures Trevor!  They both look so tactile, rather like some exotic sea anemone which would quiver if you touched them.  I just love the orange one, it looks like some living organism.

Here is the impressed mark on the base. I'm not sure I've shown it the right way up, but it appears directly under his signature.  I've seen one or two pieces of his work where the impressed mark shows his initials, but I can't make out any initials with this mark and there appears to be an exclamation mark on the right.  I might just not be looking at it correctly though, unless his mark has changed at some stage or other?

Its my first piece of Antipodean art glass, and hopefully not the last :)

Hi All,

Thought this was an interesting and well made piece of glass.  Quite a heavy and large example weighing 3642 grams and measuring 16cms wide and 15cms tall.

Produced in a cobalt blue colour, which has then been cased around the centre with a amber coloured layer of glass and then heavily cased in clear. The raised exterior looks to have been applied in the forms of small individual disc like sections and then possibly marvered together. The raised exterior has a subtle metallic like iridescent finish.

Smooth, highly polished base.

All thoughts most welcome.

Thanks,
Greg

British & Irish Glass / Re: Is this a Ronal Stennett Willson Vase?

As you say, none of the standard production colours or shapes come anywhere near this, but.........

Susan Tobin uses the expression............"on Crystal produced during the early King's Lynn years......" - which assume means the late '60's  -  so the word crystal is not necessarily inappropriate.

I can't find mention of a label that matches this one exactly, but elements of the wording agree with other labels which were curved and oval in shape, and we've no reason to think this is a forgery - 'England is in the correct position to match similar labels.

This blotch-like effect with the colouring does come near to some of RSW's early experimental pieces - although obviously with one off's there aren't going to be real matches with other pieces.

What is the wear, if any, on this vase?   If the base is very unmarked I'd be a little curious.

Sorry this is not conclusive, but you could be in with a chance  -  let's see what the others think :)

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.
