Something about the decoration, faceted stopper, and gold banding makes me think Moser might be worth a look.

Pretty pieces!

No Idea but it looks like a quality vase to me. You cannot object to something like this in any collection of Murano.

Hi Rose, attached is my B & T cordonato d'oro lamp I promised to post. It stands 37cm (14 1/2") just the glass ex fitting.

I am as you know an Archimede man but when I saw this I knew exactly where it would sit, in the entrance foyer to my house. It looks like it has always been there!
Glass / Re: Sam Herman anyone?

Thanks Sue. I don't think anyone will be put off buying the book. In fact, you've got me on the lookout for it.

I might add that 'Sam Herman Studio' and 'SJH Studio' were also used by his students on their own works for a graduating exhibition in 1977 as a tribute.

I've spotted one mistake though. SA is the state of South Australia, which invited SJH and largely funded the Jam Factory. The state comprises only a portion of the region 'Southern Australia' - and quite a chunk of The Centre as well.

Glass / Pallme Konig? Iridescent Glass Light Shade ID help please
« Last post by Dingledodger on Yesterday at 08:58:35 PM »

I suspect this may have been produced by Pallme Konig but have been unable to ID. Can anyone offer any advice please?
Much more like cakes than volcanos!  ;D
They look decidedly edible. ;D

Well, I think this means that if we find initials that are not related to where Sam was, then they indicate the person who worked on the piece with him.
We might have suspected this before, but it seems to be confirmed. I cannot think that the book is inaccurate.

There are other prefixes used. SA and a number for Southern Australia, '74-'79.
VAL for Val St lambert
The Lots Road Studio, '79-'84, used a prefix of "SJH" or "CA to CZ" or "CAC" before a number, while production work there is marked Sam Herman Studio.
A few pieces made at High Wycombe have the prefix HW
and 21st century work is not numbered.

I hope I'm not reproducing too much out of the book for copyright troubles!
I can say I recommend the book very highly indeed. ;D
