These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection.

That's really lovely.  I always imagine the lids of these getting dropped and broken as they don't look easy to lift comfortably.

Nice find :)
I have no idea who Pittsburgh makers might have been.  Was Pittsburgh a big glass making area and do you have any idea who candidates might have been for your bowl?

Nice :) Makes flower arranging easy and few blooms needed to make it look good.

I'm sure S&W did some form of pinched rim item - or at least I remember it being attributed to S&W somewhere.

Glass / Re: Etling - chilternhills

I asked the same question. On the Etling project site I said this:

Quote
It is noted that Edmond Etling's nephew, Julien Dreyfus, was the administrator at the Edmond Etling et Cie foundry in Paris. Whether this Julien has any connection with the trade mark is unknown. It may be purely coincidental.

British & Irish Glass / Uranium Opalescent Epergne Flute.
« Last post by NevB on Yesterday at 05:27:18 PM »
These came together as my latest junk shop buy. I assume the flute is by one of the Stourbridge makers but can't confirm which, the frame is modern. The tip has been ground and the rigaree doesn't fit quite right, otherwise well made.

Thank you so much for sharing that.

A question I posted a few days ago on a Costebelle thread under Glass France was I wonder if Julien Dreyfus might be anything to do with the glass occasionally found marked Julien?
