  1. Nice one. I have this relative http://lustrousstone.co.uk/cpg/displayimage.php?pid=1472
  2. And here is one with green uranium trim http://lustrousstone.co.uk/cpg/displayimage.php?pid=17
  3. If it's threaded (Loetz), you are unlikely to feel the threading on the inside; if it's moulded (Kralik) you will feel the threading on the inside
  4. Good find. It's not pate de verre of course.
  5. Which bit(s) are UV reactive and in what way please Lee?
  6. The carnival glass folk believe the glossiness/satination of the iridescence is temperature related. Iridising affects the surface layers of the glass so the glass must be very hot. Satination/frostin...
  7. Bulb vases have to fit bulbs and their roots, so yes their shapes are informed by bulb forcing, but this vase and the Rindskopf ones were not made as such and are totally unsuitable for use as such, t...
  8. Almost certainly remounted. An original mount would have been silver
  9. It's neither a hyacinth vase nor a crocus vase; you'd never get a hyacinth in and it's too big at the top for a crocus. The Rindskopf "hyacinth" vases aren't bulb vases either. I edited The Curious H...
  10. Some say coca cola for the rust or raw onions
  11. I'm just catching up on Craig's posts but would like to reply to Vintagefran re bulb vases. The pedestal vases are not bulb vases for two reasons: the top is too wide to hold a bulb and the bowl is to...
  12. Nice one Jim. You can check if it's Webb by shining a UV light on it. If it glows bright green, then it's Webb
  13. Thanks for your facebook help earlier. I can answer who made the "Twisted" Verre Moiré" aka: "Twisted Nailsea" and Clarke's model 212 fairy lamp, c. 1890. See here and scroll to the end http://www...
  14. OK, not fire polished but blow moulded
  15. It's still blown, even the lid. And yes it has had some post blowing finishing. The rim on the bottom part will probably have been fire polished. It's a hand produced factory item. Blowing and pressin...
  16. Mould blown items can and do have seams. Any sort of mould has to open to extract the item unless it is a very simple flattish item like a plate or a shallow bowl. Seam marks are removed either by rot...
  17. It's not pressed; you cannot press anything that is narrower at the top because you cannot get the plunger out. It is possible to hand work pressed items to narrow the top a bit but that has not happe...
  18. I thought Josephinenhütte was in Polish Silesia at that time
  19. Yes but did Butler Bros only import from Kralik?
