Glass / Re: More help To ID signature.
« Last post by Anne on January 23, 2015, 09:30:31 PM »
You'll need to make your image bigger so we can see the detail please.  You should be able to get them so the longer sides are around the 700 - 900 pixel mark and still stay below the board's file size limit. The same applies to your two other ID requests.

If you need help getting them resized properly please just shout! :)

Far East (excluding China) / Vase - Sphinx “Made in Japan” Raised flowers
« Last post by SmokyMtnLady on January 23, 2015, 08:58:45 PM »
Vase with Applied Raised flowers
Can someone help me identify the company and year of production of this vase? 

Marked on the bottom in gold: 
Sphinx “Made in Japan” with the head/bust of the Shinx     
I cannot find anything about the company or years of production. 
“Sphinx” “Made in Japan”   
This vase has applied raised flowers with a scene in a circle on the front. 
The photo of the mark is not very clear but it is all I have right now.

Thanks Kev,

I don't think this is an example of distorted canes.  Viewed from the bottom, the canes are all distinctive and grouped together.  I will try to get better pictures.

Glass Paperweights / Re: Recent acquisition - St. Mande?
« Last post by paperweights on January 23, 2015, 07:35:22 PM »
Hi Don,

To answer your questions, it does have a small wear ring.  No recess around the girth.  And the canes are low rather than high.  The paperweight may have been refinished.  Aside from the spectacle canes there is nothing that would have led me to conclude St. Mande.  It is quite well done. 

Thanks,

Allan

Definitely not Whitefriars  . The Whitefriars Pears have a short crease just below the stalk .

Hi Alan, definitely looks like a St mande to me. Has it got a small (in comparison to say a Clichy) wear ring? And does it have a shallow recess round the girth just above the level of the canes? And are the canes close to the surface of the dome.  If so I would have attributed it to St Mande. It looks fabulous, but I do have soft spot for them. Don

Not that any of the SV marked pieces are crystal in any case. Or is an SV mark found on those too?

I've found this but there is nothing there I'm afraid, that would link to your plate - sorry.
It shows all the pieces they have from Alexander Jenkinson

John do you have Raymond Slack ?
reference in there to Sowerby producing handblown glass -
and also reference to them developing opalescent glass for their pressed blanc-de-lait -
but... as far as I can make out I can't see that there is anywhere in there that specifically says they produced handblown opalescent glass.  There is nothing specific but I think there is information that could be misconstrued/misinterpreted.  I've not time to type it up at the moment but will add the two excerpts later.

This is a jug from Jenkinson just for reference - not opalescent though
