British & Irish Glass / Re: Latest Monart purchase - today
« Last post by Gary on Yesterday at 01:39:03 PM »
The use of red aventurine was sparsely used by the Ysart's in the Monart range, though i believe Paul used it in his paperweights.

Whilst checking what colours were in a small Monart bowl in todays sunlight, something sparkled inside the bowl.
I took some photos with a macro lens, the first one is what I believe to be red aventurine, the second is gold aventurine.
The actual size of of the red adventurine is 1cm long.
Glass / lidded uranium box?
« Last post by bat20 on Yesterday at 01:31:23 PM »
Hi all,got to say the best find at the boot fair today was two books on glass dead cheap,but a bit of a blank on the glass front apart from this little 10cm uranium glass box with a roughly polished pontil,it has a couple of chips on the inside of the rim and funnily enough i've never found one without sadly.I'm guessing Bohemia but i'm not sure about the date,any thoughts,also could i ask do chips on the inside of glass box's affect the monetary value much, or is there a bit of a amnesty on them! many thanks.

I think we can safely promote this little stunner to the Murano board.

The gold accents do point at Murano, but we'd like you to bring out your tape measure and let us know what  "little" is.  If it is lightweight lamp work there is little chance of an ID. But it looks oven worked, and the animal is just stunning.

Welcome to the GMB!

Hi and welcome to GMB!

Glass animals, particularly lampworked, are notoriously difficult to attribute without a signature or label - I have dozens that I have no idea about. Style, colours, and workmanship are a good start, but also it can come down to certain tools used to create crimps, etc. So my post is not that helpful, except to welcome you here!  :D  ???

Mystery solved, they are in fact a post war variation of the shape IG.
Link below shows a post war labeled IG shape. Though the vendor has dated his piece wrongly ie 1930s

 The image is of a pre war version of shape IG.
