Description


A late 19th century glass basket with frilled rim. It is in pale blue over white glass with a spiral rib and an amber twisted handle. This style of item started in the late 19th century as preserve baskets, and devloped into bonbons and purely decorative pieces. They are most associated with the glass factories of Stourbridge, but this example is likely Harrach (Bohemian and around 1900), this factory taking on the Stourbridge style at the end of the 19th century..

Condition


Good order with minor wear. Some colour incosistency in the ribs from production. A streak of air bubbles trapped in the handle glass, again from production.

Description


A mid century Italian opalescent glass lidded bon bon jar from the Empoli regiod. It has an optic rib design with gentle lobing. The colour runs from blue to near white for the knop and the opalescence shows amber tones when strongly lit. This design style is associated with the Empoli region near Florence around the 1950/60 period and while less known than Murano the region produced both high quality and very innovative designs. This example is hand made with fine rib detail and very attractive.

Condition


Good order with just minor wear.

Description


An Art Deco period glass vase by WMF. This example is from the Ikora range which used metallic oxide coatings over coated with hot glass to produce the cracked colour effect. This production technique gives a slightly different effect for every piece, so each one will be slightly different. This example is in red/orange with a white fleck and is a classic piece from this factory.

Condition


Very good order slight wear only. Indent/rough spot to underside base left over from the pontil scar. A particularly attractive example.

Description


A late 19th century Stourbridge glass vase. It is in the Jack-in-the-pulpit style and is unusual in having opalescent glass striped and pink and yellow at the rim. The feet are pincer worked and typical of items from the 1880's period. It is of course hand made and the pontil has been left rough snapped. The size and shape suggests use as a posy vase originally, but it is equally good just as a decorative piece.

Condition


Some minor nibbles to the feet but generally very good.

Description


A late 19th century iridescent art glass vase by John Walsh Walsh of Birmingham. It dates around 1880 and is a catalogued design from this factory. At this size and shape it was likely intended as a posy vase. The body of the vase is textured with large floral designs and it is quite finely blown. The surface has been iridised and this gives soap bubble tones to the clear glass which show up best against a dark background. The vase was hand made and the pontil has been ground out from the base.

Condition


Minor period wear and some air bubbles in the glass from production.
