The canes are Murano, so I suspect the paperweight is also.

Glass / Help with vase id
« Last post by tonyatl on November 22, 2014, 03:27:45 AM »
I am looking for a little help identifying this clear hand blown vase of conical form with blue, green, and red swirled strips, with ruffled rim, standing on a cobalt blue base. the glass has an occasional bubble as well as a piece or two of sand. it is 8 3/4" h.

I initially thought the glass was 20th c., but upon noticing the sand, I thought that it could be mid 19th c. I am leaning toward Italian origins.

does anyone have any good ideas about age, country, or even maker?

Glass Paperweights / Re: Paperweight Collection - How best to sell?

Sue, you got it, but the wise women would have arrived early, so they could clean the barn, talk about an immaculate  delivery.

As far as the collection, I'll give you ten pounds and a hand full of magic beans for it. : )

Well if it's not Monart I'll take it off your hands  ;) ;) ;D

Frank did a great job with Ysartglass educating and informing us  - I think in general we have just learnt more about Monart now - I mean they can't possibly have a ground out pontil mark!! (or glow with uranium) :P  ;)


There are so many variations in colour technique, weight, etc. it's what makes it so interesting and fabulous   :D  There's always different things turning up.

Glass Paperweights / Re: Paul Ysart Harlequin - help on date please

I'm no paperweight expert either but i do find canes fascinating!

My eyes hurt now from comparing canes - the nearest matches I can find in mine appear in two confirmed Paul Ysart weights from the 1930's.

I am surprised that you had any doubts Gary, it looks 100% to me  :)

Keith
It was the colour scheme and the weight of the vase that I had some reservations. Also I did post images of the vase 4 years ago on an other topic and was told it was not Monart.
Link to topic below.

Could you show a close up of the neck colour / pattern/ bubbles for me please Gary!

Still v. jealous  ;D

Gary
