Glass / Re: Opaline Enamelled Glass Vase With Monmartre Writing
« Last post by flying free on Today at 05:52:01 PM »

I think this is classed opalescent not opaline glass.

If it was a souvenir from Sacre Couer would it be more likely to have a religious emblem/design on it probably of the church?
But thinking along those lines though, perhaps Sr. du S. C. de Montmartre is a short for Souer du Sacre Couer de Montmartre?
So it may have belonged to the sisters perhaps.  Is that a possible?

I also think it's Bohemian :) The enamelling design, the base yellow enamel and the way it's made cut at the top with no pontil mark.

The difference between opalescent and opaline is that if you hold it up to the light, you will see a "fire" inside opalescent glass; opaline is plain and the same colour all the way through.

The label is genuine; they don't all have P canes. It looks like an older PP1 to me, so possibly pre 1978, as it has a fire polished base and no P cane

Looks Bohemian to me too. Lots of souvenir ware came from there

They look to have been cold painted by a hobbyist to me.

That sounds a bit like my thinking too. (whew  ;D )
I'm suspecting they experimented with a few moulded shapes - the odd hexagonal one has turned up (in blue or Ming).
I've got a set of 3 short "big" textured bottles, but they're the only ones I've seen.
One in reds and browns, one tortoiseshell and one blue.
A taller (8") square flanged bottle in Tortoiseshell and a small square stoppered bottle. I suspect I may have had more earlier on.
My round tortoiseshell bottle is 13" tall.
Later on, they made these bottles a good bit taller (up to 17") and in Ming.

The diameter of Keith's bottle looks quite wide compared to my round bottle. 2"7/8th.

Yes if you Google opaline glass you mostly get images of opalescent glass. Here are a couple of photos, the vase is opalescent, the dish opaline.

I wonder if the square vases and bottles are earlier, maybe just post Harris, got the impression over time that the round shapes are slightly more refined in execution, especially the bottles.
