Small blue/pink mottled tumbler. ? Scottish.
« on: July 08, 2022, 06:03:05 PM »
I think this is a small tumbler, possibly from a set.  It holds 100ml and is just over 3.5" high with a 2.25" diameter top. 
There appears to be some mark underneath the pontil mark, but I can't make out what it is. 

Just wondering if it was made by one of the Scottish glassworks?

Any ideas would be much appreciated :D

I suspect Vasart, Anne. That is a fairly common finish when the base is very small.

Thank you Sue :-*
I was thinking Vasart, Monart or Strathearn, but I'm out of my comfort zone with Scottish glass, although I do have a few Scottish paperweights which fortunately mostly have labels.

The colours are very Vasart as well as the base finish. They struggled to find coloured enamels because of the wars and what they ended up with was mostly rather pastelly and pale. You can see yourself that the pink is a little bit "tired". But they did have that deep blue.

You're absolutely right about the colours. The blue is a vibrant colour but the pink rather wishy-washy IMHO.
It has a nice feel to it when held.

Sadly, it is not a Monart miniature.   ;D
But it would probably have been part of a decanter set. Genuine tumblers such as this, are far fewer on the ground than small vases.

This Vasart jug is around the same size, perhaps intended for water to add to whiskey as only a drop is needed.

Rather an unusual and also non-standard beast.  :)
(but whiskey is Irish ;) )
