Not the most important thing in the world at moment, just some light relief.
Had a bit of time today and decided to change the accumulation of glass on top of the bookcase.
Feel free to comment.
All the best and keep well.

 ;D ok. I love your two decanters.
And I remember the cow plates that match your jug.  Oval-ish rectangles.
Exactly what you needed for the steak, peas and chips you had after a prawn cocktail starter and before the Black Forest Gateau pudding, in the '70s. ;D

I have not viewed this topic for a long time, looks like it might take me days to catch up!

Tim, who made the vase on the far right in your photo? It has the look of a bit of Sofiati.

Thanks for the kind words Sue, I thought I would get told off for having some ceramic in the picture :).
The cow milk jug is Arabia designed by Kaj Franck.
The decanters are Spanish cut James Powell.
John, I have tried my hardest and looked in my Swedish glass factories book to convince myself it is a Sandvik product(i'm into that glass at the moment).
To be honest the name you suggested I don't know but I will be having a look round on the net later.
Thanks again

I want the decanters to store vinegars and oils in, in the kitchen. I imagine they might be a tad on the expensive side, for that!
If your jug is proper Arabia,  ;D I'm afraid the cow plates I remember were probably a "tribute" (knock-off) sold in petrol stations.  :-[

Sofiati is a style I guess, very finely blown and therefore usually light in weight, generally 1930s Murano. Makers such as MVM Cappellin and Venini are worth looking into.

Try Soffiato as a search term too, my spelling not great!

Do you know anything at all about the very unusual colour the potential Soffiato is, John?
Not purple and not brown, somehow both at the same time, but still neither.
(I had a rather unusual bucket in that colour, covered in cut dragonflies. The colour is a mystery to me. I assumed a bohemian origin.)

Sue, you put into words exactly what I have been thinking about the colour of my Sandvik glass (if it is)
In my book there is Simon Gate design from the 1923 catalogue that is so similar I want to believe it is.
To me Sandvik glass is very underated.
John, for a vase which is 235mm tall it only weighs 360 grams.
Have not had time to look at the Italian options.

They both can share the same characteristics by the look of it, thinly blown soda glass, maybe muted colours. If we carry on perhaps the vase needs it's own topic?
