Thank-you, those are great.  :)
I think those should be enough for somebody who might know what it is, to be able to recognise it.
It is rather lovely.

I didn't want to open another thread, just to show this paper weight, but I'd thought that it might be interesting to show it here.

Zabkowice from the period 1905-1919. From what I understand, the marked pieces were made for the Russian market as this was a customs and import requirement. The ones that are unmarked, like this one, were made for the local market or from the period 1917-1919, when for just two years, these Russian  import rules were dropped. From 1919 the production came to a halt due to the war.
If I've misunderstood the info I've found (my german's getting a little rusty) please feel free to correct me, I'd appreciate that.

Glass / Victorian opal white sugar and creamer with cow pattern
« Last post by thewingedsphinx on January 10, 2019, 07:39:12 AM »
Hello all,
I welcome any help identifying these two pieces,Victorian opal white sugar and creamer with cow pattern, material feel is very similar to the Greener rd302199 creamer which Iíve included for reference. They have an unusual base.
Thanks Mike
Going back to the original thread here are some more pieces from our collection for rd 302199 which come with a Lozenge. I have not managed to find any comparisons to the white creamer and sugar but the colours are referenced in the Henry Greener page of Jenny Thompsonís book.
 There is also currently listed on eBay a Malachite oval dish listed on eBay which has some good pictures of that pattern. So it appears there where at least two patterns under reg 302199?

Regards Mike

Thanks.  I hope this post works.  I've included a couple of photos.  The important one of the bottom didn't photograph very well but you can just make out the etched numbers.  The color is off in the photo; it's actually the same color as the main body of the vase.  As I said in my previous post the vase is about 5" tall and I've verified that the silverwork is by La Pierre based on a mark on the silver. If more photos are needed please let me know and I;ll take a few more.   Any suggestions on the glassmaker would be greatly appreciated.
I meant to say Klinger rather than Vizner in the above post btw. Not sure you can edit posts!
I'd be grateful if anyone knows anything about this Zelezny Brod piece. The bottom part is charcoal brown which graduates to a smoked glass. Its most notable feature is small, crushed crystal glass (I assume) which has been applied to the exterior and smoothed over. This produces a stunning sparkling effect. It has a highly polished base and is labelled with the ZBS blue foil label.
It is 3 inches high and 8 and a half inches in length.
I know from reading the boards that detailed info on their output is scarce. There seems to be a default attribution of Vizner Klinger to many of their pieces on-line, but I know they had other designers. Unfortunately I don't have any of the specialist Czech glass books. Any thoughts, however speculative, on designer, age etc. would be really welcome as I think it's a beautiful piece.
Thanks for reading
