Tom who? ID = Tom Petit
« on: December 07, 2020, 11:50:47 AM »
Does anyone know who produced this piece of glass please? It is signed 'Tom' followed by what looks like Pohr, but I cannot be sure and can find no details of a glassmaker with a similar name. The other side is engraved with what looks like '2000'.

The piece measures around 165mm x 95mm x 43mm.

I'd be very grateful to receive any info.

Many thanks in advance,
Carol

It looks to be a Tom Petit style glass paperweight/sculpture. I have seen these in different colours.

Well done Louise!  ;D
I wouldn't have recognised this as being his work at all - I have seen plenty of vases, all very finely made, pastel colours and satinated. ButI did a search and found this exact weight illustrated as being his work, on pinterest.
Cheers, Sue (M)

My favourite art gallery (The Strathearn Gallery in Crieff, which is very supportive of glass) holds his work.
Here's the page on him, with loads of lovely pics. :)

Thank you very much Louise, I'm sure you've cracked it- most grateful. Thank you also chopin-liszt. Prior to your post, I noticed that Tom has his own site with lots of examples of his work. Very beautiful glass indeed. That you again, Carol
