Here are three ewers from my collection that I would like some feedback on:

7" tall, mold blown with no pontil mark on the bottom. Cased with yellow glass and applied clear leaf and handle. Is this a Bohemian take on cottage glass?

8 1/2" tall. Satin glass with applied clear handle, vine and leaves. Two mult- colored flowers are also applied. There is a rough pontil mark on the bottom. UK glass?

6 1/2" tall mold blown. Cased with white glass and applied clear handle. UK?

Thanks for any and all help with attributions.


Mystery Solved

    I'd call them "generic Victorian"--and the possibilities are Bohemian or British. I have several vases with applied "bloodied" flowers, that is, reddish streaks and they are all Bohemian.

    How did you narrow yours down to Bohemian vs. UK?

    Is it a case of finding a catalogued example from the time period?


  3. Alfredo Alfredo, 5 years ago
    The catalogs have crude black and white line drawings, which really do not give any idea of the piece itself. We know Harrachov kept design books BY TARGET COUNTRY, with the UK being paramount. A lot of British glass is really Czech.
    In the case of my vases, I know they are Czech because they have been documented.

    Nice Scott! You need to find a Photo area though, they look good on Carpet but I bet if you find a Beautiful Spot that is as Wonderful as your Glass your pics will turn out even better! Keep up the Nice Posting though I'm enjoying your collection of Applied Glass items, they match my own taste in glass!

    Thanks charcoal. I saw your other post and love the glass on that site. I posted a link to an English attributed piece that I wondered about.

  12. scottvez scottvez, 3 years ago
    Here is an example of an English attribution that I would think is surely Bohemian:

    And another that I would think is more likely Harrach:
