Glass / Re: Mid centuary cake stand?
« Last post by Paul S. on December 14, 2017, 01:00:01 PM »
Tim  -  is that 'stub' clear or is it bluish like the rest of the piece, can't quite make out from the pix - obviously I hadn't looked properly first time around.
In passing, I notice there are some pieces of W/Fs showing in Jackson which have a stub foot/base similar to this one.           Of course, I'm not remotely linking this piece to Whitefriars, but the similarity of foot shape with this piece might just indicate the same approximate manufacturing date of 1930s.           However, I notice you're suggesting mid C20, so possibly unrelated date wise.

Glass / Re: Kenyan Wildlife Glasses Help to Identify
« Last post by Laird on December 14, 2017, 12:37:09 PM »
In the Karen Blixen house grounds in Nairobi there was a glass engraving business, selling items such as wine and drinks glasses, decanters, bowls etc, usually engraved with animals and various wildlife, and they also did attractive floral designs.
The glass items to be engraved were French, but the name of the manufacturer escapes me.
When I lived in Kenya I used to buy items there to bring as gifts to friends in the UK as the quality of the glass was very good as was the engraving.
Look at the Karen Blixen website - I haven't done so - I expect you'll find the glass engraver mentioned there.

I haven't been able to find another pitcher like this, so was hoping for a clue or identification.
Thank you

Glass / Re: ID for clear glass vase with ray pattern

not Peill & Putzler? There seem to be a lot of similar designs in their catalogues, but I don't have any complete reference material.

Glass / Re: Cased vase - iridescent - help with maker/origin?

At least the response wasn't "brand new, made in China, from a discount store."
I do think it is a quality piece.
But you never know who might know something here. I was able to get a wonderful american studio piece identified, because the artist, who is no longer working as a glass artist, but writing books, for which he is now much better known, is a friend of somebody here.

Are you absolutely sure there are no markings on it, whatsoever?

I'm really sorry you've had no response so far. It's a difficult one though!
I had suspected perhaps WMF, but the white liner put me off, I'd imagine it might be more recent than that, and quite possibly a studio piece.
You have a lot of studio glass artists in the states; I'm afraid I'm not familar with many of them.

Thank you for your reply :) I appreciate it - and yes - studio piece is a likely possibility. I'll keep looking!

Glass Market Place / Re: Caithness Festival of Colour paperweight
« Last post by chopin-liszt on December 13, 2017, 05:00:07 PM »
Have you tried contacting Caithness directly?
They do (or at least they certainly did) keep hold of some old stock and have been releasing some of it bit by bit in their shop in the visitor centre in Crieff.
I've just looked at the one in the link Christine posted and it looks a bit familar, I'm sure I've seen one like that in the shop. It's a bit garish and distinctive - I like garish and it stuck on me a bit.
