Malta Glass / Re: Pate de verre? Two tone vase. Help with ID please
« Last post by chopin-liszt on February 25, 2017, 04:19:32 PM »
Oh dear, dear Della! ;D
This is just satinated, acid washed. It's a bit of Mdina from some time around or after '86.
It's not pate de verre, sadly.  :'(

Malta Glass / Pate de verre? Two tone vase. Help with ID please. ID = Mdina
« Last post by Della on February 25, 2017, 03:57:09 PM »
This piece is incredibly heavy, 1138g and is 6.25" (160mm) in height.
Forgive my total ignorance when it comes to Pate de Verre. I have read all about the technique of how it is made, but still don't really 'get it' I do know that this has a totally different feel to any blown glass I have handled, but I have never handled Pate de Verre.
There is an outline of where there was sticker/label and, whilst photographing, I discovered it is signed. Illegible, of course  ::)
I'll let the photos do the talking before I make a complete fool of myself and look forward to any help.

Glass Paperweights / Re: Another small paperweight id pls :)
« Last post by WhatHo! on February 25, 2017, 10:55:31 AM »
I have a chap who very interested in buying this weight. This is a Thuringia paperweight, the guy comes from the town and collects the these.
I think that gives it a 100% iD :)
Thanks for your help.

Actually that's a great help. Anne.
The owner wants to know whether they are by a 'known-artist'. If they're floating around markets unidentified then I think we're close to answering that question.

Plus: you walked on by, so they clearly did NOT look better in real life! ;-)

It's annoying, obviously a self-respecting artist, who, instead of signing underneath, decides to sign on top of the foot, with production numbers and date and all, but nobody can read it  :-\. I can't think of anybody else at the moment who used to do that besides Schneider and sub-marks, but of course we're in a whole different period here.

Not that it means anything, but I've seen these pieces for sale in France and Germany too, same style, same siggie.

So here are some more Leloupe signatures for  the record. But I don't think they help answer the question.
