Didn't really need to find anything else today. Picked this beauty up at the Salvation Army Family Thrift Store and couldn't wait to get it home and check online to see what I could find out about it. Can you believe almost nothing ?! Well, I did find a blue one like it on Worthpoint from 2007 but other than saying it was signed there was no other info. It's 11 1/2 in. tall and weights an incredible 8 lbs.! It has Cartier etched on the edge of the base and is small and hard to read. It was on the top shelf and I almost dropped it because I wasn't expecting it to weigh so much. It's in pretty good shape with some minor chipping in the satin glass base and a few scratches. There's what looks like a tiny air bubble in the corner top edge of the crystal too. I really don't think it's that old but so far I can't find another one with complete info to compare it to, but I'll keep looking. -Mike-

  4. mikelv85 mikelv85, 3 months ago

    Wow! Wow! Wow! Getting jealous over here. I bought a deck of old cards today...empty hand syndrome. Well done Mike!
  6. mikelv85 mikelv85, 3 months ago
    Thanks Amber.... it's driving me crazy though, There is not a thing about the manufacturer or date online. The only other picture I could find is of the blue one from a seven year old auction. Someone had to make this for them. I don't think they do their own in house glass. A bit of a mystery !

    It's a leopard.

    Amber ... I have no clue :(

    At Cartier they call them Panthères, but technically there is no big difference between an African leopard (Panthera pardus) and a south American panther ( (Panthera pardus) a jaguar as is called in South America, which can be either black or mottled as the Leopard). Then there's that other thing of North Americans calling Panthers to what's known as Puma in Spanish (Puma Concolor)

    So even if both names Leopard and Panther are right, because of Cartier's name we should refer to them as" panthères" :D

    The vase is amazing! won't they be able to help at Cartier?
  14. mikelv85 mikelv85, 3 months ago
    They might austrohungaro.... I'm more interested in the manufacturer and the date of this piece. I don't think Cartier owns their own glass factory. I'm thinking it had to be made in France or Germany for them. I fully expected to see several online and that they were common, but now I'm beginning to wonder. If they made the white and cobalt colors there maybe others, but there is nothing online at all. They have the single crystal panther figures as well. That's all that comes up when you search Cartier Panther Vase. The panther appears to be their logo as well as having panther jewelry of various types. -Mike-

    It's funny how just a snippit of info opens a lot of doors Sean. Here's the Royal Brierley history it appears they were formerly Stevens and Williams ! Thanks again :) -Mike-

    Amber ... You guys rock ...
  30. mikelv85 mikelv85, 3 months ago
    Thank you Sean, Amber, Austro, icollect , Phil and everyone for all the loves and help !! All I need to do now is find a production date. Seems "Royal Brierley" aka Stevens and Williams until 1967 closed their doors in 2000. The company is now owned and marketed by Dartington Crystal Ltd. So this has to be at least before then. Still searching for a catalog or other pictures and possible current value. -Mike-
  31. icollectglass icollectglass, 3 months ago
    Could it be commemorative piece for cartier ?
  32. mikelv85 mikelv85, 3 months ago
    Maybe an "anniversary" piece ? That's a thought icollect. Not sure of how old Cartier is as a company. Hundreds of years I suppose.
  33. icollectglass icollectglass, 3 months ago
    An employee gift ?
  34. mikelv85 mikelv85, 3 months ago
    That might account for why there is very little online about it. If it were mass produced there should be a lot more images online I would think.
  35. icollectglass icollectglass, 2 months ago
    I hope someone knows more about it.
