Given the use of the term "Art Deco" in the title of this thread, I'd be very interested to hear other folks definition of the term. Not a trick; yes I have an opinion (as you might expect), But I'd like to hear what other people think before I make any comment.

Oh, if anyone feels this is high-jacking the thread, then maybe a moderator can separate it off.? Thanks  :)

British & Irish Glass / Re: Possible Richardson match holder...
« Last post by nigel benson on August 19, 2014, 12:58:52 PM »

I've always believed this style decoration to be from the 1920's/30's rather than pre WWI which is suggested by your use of "British Glass 1800-1914". Am I missing something?

Thanks, Nigel

Welcome to the message board Nekka.

Thank you for your help, we don't know who made these little vases, not yet anyway. It seems that they are mostly found in Britain so they may well have been made here.

Glass / Re: Tall amber/brown Uranium crackle jug

For what it is worth, Kralik also made some amber uranium glass. This jug does not look like their production to me though..... but if they did, then I am sure there are others in the region that used it......  I have only seen a couple pieces of it by Kralik.

If you look at the top of the webpage there is a menu which includes a download icon (5th icon across from the left). Click it and select download all and it will create you a PDF file of the magazine that you can download to your computer. :)

Great call!

I didn't contact Nick, but ran across a signed piece today (talk about coincidence), same flower on top, a less organic earthy feel to the background, and a very similar base.

Thanks for your help!

Glass / Rowland Ward or Queens Lace
« Last post by wildrose on August 18, 2014, 10:12:30 PM »
how would I determine whether my safari glasses are made for Rowland Ward by Moser or Queens Lace, when searching the tumblers both seem to have the same design and shape. As far as I can find none of them are marked.

They are deeply engraved/carved. Thanks for any tips!
