  1. Thank you kairomalte for this information. It gives me an idea as to where to try and find more about this piece of glass.
  2. Actually, I have just found that the pattern is identical to the Inwald Glassworks Fleur de Lis pattern. Inwald is a Czech glassworks.
  3. It's a bit of a puzzling mark? Does it mean it's made in Britain for overseas import? Or in Italy? I do know during the Second World War British manufactures were only allowed to make decorative plate...
  4. It is marked made in England, so it is 20th century. That's as far as I can tell! It looks pretty new to me.
  5. Thanks vintagefran, I have had a look at the shapes etc of Monart and Isart glass catalogues, and so far haven't found the same shape, I will keep looking though.
  6. Thank you Malkey. I am tempted to leave it outside on the table, because it looks stunning in the sunshine!
  7. I think it's the mark for March 1850!
  8. Beautiful cup and saucer. The mark is a British Registration Mark. You should be able to look up when it was first registered etc. Its pre 1883 anyway.
  9. It would be useful to actually have a picture of the back stamp?
  10. Looks like a copy of Wedgwoods Dancing Hours figures. Lovely pot.
  11. Well I think this is Schafer Vater, but not positive!
  12. I am not likely to find any more like the bowl! it is a bit special, and I am glad you like it. I do have quite a few bits in the loft. Will have to get them out sometime to remind myself whats there!
  13. Thanks Malkey.
  14. I have still got all his LPs somewhere, and probably a book of cuttings etc. Sad isn't it!!
  15. Thank you Tall Cakes and TimeTraveller. I will mark it as solved.
  16. Thanks to Tallcakes I also found a discussion on a glass message board of various people having this bowl, including an amber one, and the opinion was either Davidson or Greener (another UK North Eas...
  17. Thank you Tallcakes. My first thought was Davidson, but I couldn't find this pattern. The example you found is identical to mine, but there are no markings on mine (or on his either as he's not sure e...
  18. Glad you like it Vetraio, I think maybe I like their work because I am an identical twin!
  19. Was it American glass you found? I thought this would probably be English, purely because it is so heavy I would have thought exporting it would be uneconomical! ( I am living in England).
  20. Thank you Tallcakes, at least you know what the pattern is called - I got as far as drape, but didn't know what the squares were called.
  21. It's really lovely, I think the flowers are gorgeous and makes a change from Willow Pattern. I guess its transfer printed ?
  22. I collect Wedgwood Jasperware, a type of fine-grained, unglazed stoneware introduced by the English potter Josiah Wedgwood in 1775 as the result of a long series of experiments aimed at discovering t...
  23. I think my spelling is wrong! I just tried googling it and I think the correct spelling is Schafer Vater.
  24. Actually, it may be Shaffer Vater, as I just got my wall plaques down and had a look and it does have numbers on back 3102. I will take some photos and post so you can compare.
  25. I thought at first glance that it maybe Shaffer & Vater, but I am not sure it's good enough quality for them. It's certainly their sort of style!
  26. The colour is similar to my centre piece bowl I have, if you have a look at my posts. I have no idea where its from either!
  27. I do have a few other Teal pieces, but they are hard to find. I have 2-3 pin dishes, a damaged egg shaped box, and a Valentines plate
  28. They certainly look to be Victorian. The size of the sugar bowl is huge, so maybe before they had refined sugar. Sugar used to come in cones, then pieces were nipped off. They are very pretty.
  29. I think my sister just bought the large tray in a charity shop recently. She was going to give it to me, but decided she liked it!
  30. Thanks Jscott, I am going to take it in to the local Antiques centre, there was a chap there who was interested in looking at it.
  31. My friend would love this (if she hasn't already got it), as she collects Kutani Crane. I will have to show it to her.
  32. Thanks all for the love. It is quite hard to find the rarer coloured jasperware, but it is around, usually when you don't expect it. I found this little box in a charity shop in Selby and it was quite...
  33. That's lovely, where do you find all this interesting glass?
  34. Thanks Tallcakes, found lots of interesting info on Brockwitz, and it sounds like production of Carnival glass at the glassworks, ended when the Second World War started.
  35. Thank you Tallcakes, I can always rely on you, and funnily enough I was just trawling through a Carnival Glass Website and had come up with the name Brockwitz. I will have to read up about it now.
  36. Thanks for all your loves and comments. I am not sure they are actually a set as the designs on them are different.
  37. It could be Heron Glass paperweight. They weren't often marked?
  38. It's really lovely. As it's not marked Wedgwood, it would be really early, as Wedgwood nearly always marked their pieces. I wonder if it could be German, like Schafer and Vater?
  39. Haha, Byrdnest, you would have to go a long way to come shopping with me! I still haven't found what this bowl is. I found an oil lamp with similar pattern that was called Coolidge Drape, made in USA...
  40. I have put a picture of the base up, it has no markings on it. I checked the fitting, and that has no marks on it at all.
  41. As a matter of interest, how did you know it was from Hong Kong? I never imagined it may be from China, and the chimney isn't!
  42. For a Chinese planter, the wildlife looks very English, with kingfishers, grebes, otters etc! Love it very much.
  43. It's a super piece. Is it used for warming something?
  44. Sorry, can't see bottom on picture at all to blurry. The pattern could be called Dutch? I always like the stagecoach patterns. It does look hand painted. If it says Made in England it will be 2oth cen...
  45. Thanks Robin, at least that gives me something to look up!
  46. I was really surprised that they did. I found one other that shone in another brooch, and realised the stone was a replacement, as the rest didn't!
  47. Thank you Beyemev and Jscotto, I am always happy to find interesting bits of glass when I am wandering round the charity shops. I found both in the same shop - I often find bargains in this shop as mo...
  48. Thanks Phil, I do think the bubbles are controlled on this one. I really must look up how they do it, it must be a pretty tricky process. Maybe something on u tube will show me. Antiquerose, thanks fo...
  49. I will have a closer look at it next time I pass by!
  50. Thank you all for your comments. The Murano zoo website is amazing. I think most Murano bird bowls tend to be more delicate and frilly than mine, which is quite a large chunk of glass!
