Thanks M, sometimes your gut feeling tells you that something is not quite right. saying that, the pieces I have seen have been very nice items of glass.

I think it might be possible that these are not antique.
It might be possible that it is very much more recent.
There has been another post on here about a similar piece.  I will try and find it.

Glass / Re: signature on a French Deco vase? ID = Henri Quenvil, decorator
« Last post by flying free on August 27, 2016, 10:55:35 PM »
Thank you!  I have one or two pieces and love them.  The enamelling is fab.
What I love about this information is the ummm 'PR' aspect -

In your first post it appears the authors were 'bigging' up Legras :

'What is also interesting, is that some books on Legras, say that Quenvil has got nothing to do with Legras, because the quality is far more superior then Quenvil,[/u]

but in the write up of the exhibition in 1923 it says:

'All the objects on display carry the signature from the decorating artist Quenvil, a young man who can be classified as one of the best. His works of art are for sale in all department stores of good taste.'

Glass / oriental sailing boat engraving
« Last post by essi on August 27, 2016, 10:49:58 PM »
In the past year I have seen two other examples of this pattern of engraving, one was on a very old looking spirit decanter and one on a bucket shaped vase. Does anybody know the origin of this glass or the engraving ?
Any help appreciated.

Glass / Re: Glass Reference Question

I've a feeling the 'vitrified enamel' refers to the enamels used to decorate the piece rather than the glass body itself.
Just thought I'd add that - did someone ask about this?  or is just that I recall finding out about this many moons ago.

And yes, I would call all these translucent glass pieces by Richardson 'opaline glass'. 

Again, I seem to recall an odd comment in The Crystal Years (the S & W book) about Richardson's doing 'alabaster' glass (in the section about S & W alabaster range), so it's possible they called their opaline 'alabaster' hence the odd comment in the book.  But they are opaline glass basically.  There are a couple of early pieces in hospital green and pale custard yellow as well but mostly white pieces.  Some are very translucent and others appear to be fairly opaque but it can be difficult to tell from photographs.

Not got Manley with me at mo - are the vermicelli pieces registered with rd numbers?

Malta Glass / Re: Early Mdina etched signature

Hi,

 The reason for Wolfie's original question was prompted by my purchase of a Papa/pulled ear vase that has what looks like a 'Harris' signature.

The vase is early...... being 5 inches high and a small button top.

Regards,

Patrick.

Glass / Glass bowl identification please
« Last post by Bluebell17 on August 27, 2016, 07:48:09 PM »
Hi All,

I have a glass bowl from the loft that my Father would like to know more about.
It's about 7 inches in diameter and 3 inches high with a rough top edge, not a polished finish as you would expect.
The design is of swagged laurel? And grapes

Marc,

actually on looking again can you post a larger image on one of the larger hosting sites as a closer inspection is needed beyond 125 kb.

Thanks

Andrew   :) :) :)
