Glass / Re: Antique uranium crystal wine glass ID please
« Last post by Ph on April 19, 2019, 10:44:11 PM »
This is fascinating... thank you. I agree regarding the colour. It's almost more bright turquoise blue than green and glows in daylight even without a torch. The polished pontils are very large on 3 glasses and 4th one has the whole base polished. Lots of wear, really can't see any marks unfortunately.
Found this link for presumably older glasses that look almost exactly as mine except the pontil... Could mine be an old reproduction of even older glasses??

I have some Walsh bonnet shaped tumblers with honeycomb cutting on them. They have very large polished pontil marks.
Are they large on your other glasses?

Walsh was not always marked and sometimes the mark is so imperceptible it is incredibly difficult to see without the light suddenly catching it in the right way.

Walsh did do a bluey green colour glass as there is one pictured in the book The Glass of John Walsh Walsh on page 47 (large bowl with Iris decoration).    It looks more intense than yours on the piece in the book but that might be because it is a bigger piece and the photograph is from the side of the bowl so it would be showing the effect of two walls of glass if you see what I mean.
I believe it might be the same colour as this vase which looks a very different green in this link, to the one in the book:
https://scottishantiques.com/art-glass/british?product_id=3964

That link says it is uranium glass.



All that said, I've had a quick look through the book and could not spot a glass this shape or cut.  But it was a very quick look.

Hi Ekimp,
It worked really well 😉
I have 4 of them so just checked the others and yes! The photographed one seems to have whole base polished flat. The others have various sizes of polished flat pontil...silly me not checking them all initially 😂😂

It reminds me of some Poschinger iridescent pieces for some reason.

Hopefully someone who actually really knows will be along shortly to help :)
but in the meantime it might be worth investigating?

British & Irish Glass / Re: Monart, 2nd piece !

 :-* thank you!
Keith's isn't  the same blue, but his bowl does have that sumptuous quality of what is known as Yves Klein blue.

It's a kind of blue almost like a very early 1820s/30s French blue opaline called Bleu Lavande.  I have a piece - it's unbelievably gorgeous on the eye, truly amazing blue, but very difficult to photograph and capture the colour because of the rare way the metal was made I guess.  Hence I've never shown it on here because I just can't do the colour justice.  The peculiar intensity of the opaline colour, and the way it was made, is everything.  It's dichroic and turns red  :o
