Glass / Re: VERY LARGE but not that heavy...?
« Last post by Mr. Turnip on September 21, 2014, 03:13:44 PM »
Thanks for your opinion Tony, obviously not what I was hoping for but I can't get away from the fact that the bottom has the matte, ground finish and matte pontil which seems to be a feature of Chinese vases. Not a lot of wear on the base either.

My only hope was that the weight doesn't seem as weighty as I would expect from Chinese. The aventurene bits seems to be an Italian, Chinese or South American feature which I've seen quite often on (usually) larger vases. I'm aware of the Dale Tiffany and Anne Primrose vases which seem widespead in the US, which appear to originate from Brazil and China. Hmm :-\

Glass / Re: Are these vases Kralik, Loetz or something else?

Hi Craig,

Thanks for the helpful reply - if only to start ruling things out :)

Yes, both vases are hall-marked. The three squared marks on both vases are all worn through, although there is a bit of shape to them.

I've attached a photo which shows something to the left of the hollow squared marks that is partially readable on one of them; the other vase suggests that this is a single mark, although could contain more than one character.

Hope this helps.

We have something similar - designed to help certain types of orchids stay upright.

The clear glass ones were made by Peter Keil of Glas-Hüttli in Basel-Riehen (Switzerland).

The coloured ones were made by Roger Schräpler, trained in Ilmenau (Thuringia), since 1995 working at Schloss Salem (near Lake Constance), where they have several artists showing their crafts, and selling the products. Make sure to visit his gallery

Paul — Apologies.   I wasn't querying Whitefriars' production of wrought iron mounts at all.   I believe it firmly established, from the mid 1870s for lighting, from the late 1870s for vessels.   We even have the names of the blacksmith and his boy.

What I was querying was the BM text "using the same furnaces".   I should have made this more clear.   I was hoping that someone might know how the BM came to this conclusion, before contacting them with information to back up a possible correction.

Essi — thanks.   I will try to get in touch.

I, for one, am not sure who these are by. They have a resemblance to the Martelé décor by Kralik and Rindskopf. The issue I have with them being one of those two, is that the Martelé decor by the companies I am familiar with is that the decor is generally a little tighter pattern. These have some very large clear areas in the decor and that just not fall in line with Kralik & Rindskopf Martelé examples I am familiar with.   In this case, the color is also a little different. I have seen a couple of examples of this décor recently, and on this shape if memory serves me correctly.

I  can say pretty confidently that they are not Loetz.

They are, at least for me, a bit of a puzzle at the moment.

May I inquire if the rims are Silver and Hallmarked?

Period wise these are likely ca 1910. Pretty examples in a different color......  and I love pairs...

Thanks Roberta and Chris.

Although I don't technically collect paperweights, this is my second Paul Ysart. The first one has been with me for a couple of years and I can't see this one leaving in the near future.

Some things are a delight to own, this definitely falls into that category.
