Glass Paperweights / Re: Unknown maker/age

Spot on Christine !

I believe St Helens Glassworks employed some glassmakers from "Bohemia" and their output seems to be these flower type shapes in single, double or triple format but they also made weights with names in. You could order any name but the design was usually the same as per this example

I know Pirelli made Disney characters, Gary, but the Donald Duck isn't shown in Angela's 2013 Pirelli Glass calendar - it may well be Pirelli -  I just can't confirm it.

Glass / Re: small orange glass with blue foot

Going over this piece with a magnifying glass i may have spotted some writting on top of the foot, the last 4 letters being G I C C Y,but very difficult to read,so maybe a studio glass?

Found this vase today and I LOVE IT! It's quite big, about 18cm x 22cm at widest point, and weighs in at 2.6kg. Base is ground flat but with little surface scratches so I don't think it's either old, or it hasn't been moved or used a lot! There was slight limescale inside, which has come off with a brief rub of remover, so it has been used. I don't care if it's anything special as I love it anyway, more interested in the history behind it. Would anyone be able to tell me anything about it?

And it was a bargain at £13.50. I beat them down from £15. Happy Days.

Hello everyone
i recently came across this rather nice iridescent vase
it probably Czech origin and early c20th, it looks to have a secessionist feel to it.

could anyone ID the makers for me please?

So the seller is a serial offender...and maybe never had the object to start with. If so, where did the images used in the adverts come from? An earlier eBay auction that none of us spotted?

Glass / small orange glass with blue foot

Hi all,this little glass has a few chips on the foot or more accurately the air bubbles in the blue glass have  blistered here and there,it hasn't a ring more of a short ping i would say and interestingly a shear mark on the base hinting it was held by a gadjet when made,any thoughts my guess would be Polish,many thanks.

If you Google the item number 141356318454 which is Alpha's current purchase, the Google reference turns up a discussion (in French) in which a buyer is complaining about non-delivery.  The actual discussion on eBay boards has been edited to remove reference to the item number and the seller, but may be relevant.
