  1. I cannot claim to be an expert, and I do make mistakes ... That said, I have to say I don't think this is authentic Tiffany. There are lots of these look-a-likes out there, and this size / shape i...
  2. Moser made bar sets in a very similar pattern, and they made them in several colors. I am not sure if vases were a part of the line or not. You can see a modern-day example here: http://www.moser...
  3. TC, it certainly could be part of a stacking set. While the top is actually domed / somewhat pointed, I could see this possibly being the top portion of a stacking set based on the cylindrical flat ...
  4. No markings that I have been able to find. I'll try to post better pictures soon.
  5. Thanks austrohungaro for the loves.
  6. Thanks to austrohungaro, mikelv85, robinlee, and Vintagefran for the loves.
  7. Thanks Vintagefran and mikelv85 for the loves.
  8. Thanks mackay1st, LoetzBuddies, and mikelv85 for the loves.
  9. AH, I know what you mean. This one "spoke" to me when I first saw it as well.
  10. TallCakes, thanks for your reference. I agree the Cambridge "Ball" line has certain similarities (as does another teapot made by Heisey), but I have not been able to find any variants within either ...
  11. Thanks to elainekay42, Moonstonelover21, Vintagefran, fixitjmc, vetraio50, aghcollect, LeahGoodwin, tom61375, Manikin, and PhilDavidAlexanderMorris for the loves.
  12. Beautiful; very elegant.
  13. Larger pieces of Tiffin Empress have the more exaggerated pulling, but smaller pieces are less pronounced. That said, Whitefriars is a good possibility as well.
  14. Can't be 100% certain from the pictures. I've had a few pieces. Same red encased in colorless technique; lobed body; ground bottom. I'm sure others have done similar works including Murano compan...
  15. I believe it to be by Tiffin (of Tiffin, OH); part of their Empress line.
  16. I believe this is an L. E. Smith bowl. However, L. E. Smith bought many of the blanks from other companies to decorate and sell as their own, so I cannot garantee this was not made initially by anot...
  17. It is a fairly rare piece made by Fenton ... a very collectible example of their dolphin footed line(s).
  18. I can't swear to it that none of it comes from China, but here are some links that will show examples of the type of works you can make at the Corning Museum. These classes have evolved over the year...
  19. "End of Day" (EOD) simply refers to an age-old practice where factory workers would use scraps from the day's efforts to make personal items, gifts, and otherwise experiment. The type of EOD glass c...
  20. Thanks to AnneLanders, SEAN68, bratjdd, Radegunder, and lisa for the loves.
  21. I agree ... great discussion, and maybe I misunderstood a key point. I thought you were taking the word from your previous buyer that they had talked to the Sabino folks. If you've talked to them yo...
  22. Fair enoguh. But just to add another parallel story ... I have a pair of signed Moser decanters that a bidder claimed were never made by Moser, and that Moser never used the particular signature ...
  23. I have seen 2 of these sold on the open market ... both sold as Sabino. I have one as well, but it is not opalescent, nor is it signed. My understanding is that this was possibly a special commissi...
  24. I agree with vetraio50 ... I think it is a glass sculpture. If the first character is actually a "T" & "r" on top of each other, it could be Transjo; possibly another artist copying the style of Ber...

  26. Thanks to BelleEpoque for the love.
  27. Thanks to BHock45, bratjdd, and wpj for the loves.
  28. Thanks mikelv85 and Parkerhouse for the loves.
  29. Alfredo, it appears Harrach Tango has a polished pontil as well. Maybe not all pieces, but some do. Please see the pink fan vase I listed previously: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/1000...
  30. Yep. I think it took 3 days for the 1st bid to show up. I tried to enter my bid in the last few seconds, but it told me my bid was too low; hit refresh, and that was it.
  31. Gorgeous. I was on that vase as well. Somehow I suspected you'd be a player on it too before it was over. Very nice. Congratulations.
  32. WOW ... Fantastic! Is it possible to add a picture of the bottom?
  33. You got it right ... these are Cambridge Glass too. They are "Calla lily" Candlesticks. They come in several colors.
  34. Mont Joye is where I was leaning as well. If it were pottery, I'd swear it was a Frederick Rhead design. Do you know if he ever designed pieces for Mont Joye? Either way, it's gorgeous. I'm st...

  36. The Cambridge versions are found in various colors ... that violet one is quite nice. The more common ones are the frosted and milk glass one. Yellow, cobalt blue, etc. are a bit more rare ... typic...
  37. You could always try the pencil / paper rub trick. Sometimes the raised lettering rubs better. May be worth a try ...
  38. Everyone makes mistakes ... including me. My best advice is consider it a good learning experience, and enjoy the next score all the more.
  39. Anything's possible. There are other disceptively stylish Avon bottles on the market that are not signed either. Some may have been made by decent companies as special commission lines for Avon. ...
  40. Blue vase is by avon. Here's a listing showing the same vase in white with the original box. http://www.ebay.com/itm/AVON-Gift-Collection-Frosted-Bud-Vase-White-NEW-/301057193338?pt=Vases&hash...
  41. I have seen those blue vases before, but I'm not sure who made them. I'll do a little digging to see if I can figure it out.
  42. Interesting thought. Hard to say how any given company might re-purpose another company's molds. I have seen vase molds turned into shade molds .. as well as the other way around.
  43. The one referenced above on eBay is neither Lalique, not Etling. If you're familiar with either company's work, you'll notice the difference in "look". Unfortunately, any most unidentified froste...
  44. When the Cambridge molds were released out into the market, several different companies bought them. Some used them as-is (no markings); some altered them to add their own markings before putting th...
  45. I'm with you on the Moser Style issue as well as Moser tending to be a bit more "busy". I have a fair bit of experience with Moser, and without seeing the vase in person, I would lean towards a Fren...
  46. I have had similar pieces as well. Best I could ever come up with was English or Czech / Bohemian (similar to much of the discussion above). The only other thing I'd add is that I heard often ti...
  47. Thanks to Aimathena, mikelv85, ho2cultcha, Vintagefran, getthatmonkeyoutofme, and colori for the loves.
  48. wpj and mikelv85mikelv85, thanks for the loves.
  49. Kairomalte, thanks for the input. I agree ... Arsall and D'Argental seem to be the most likely makers based on shape, colors, technique. Do you know is Arsall used other signatures or maybe did com...
  50. Fantastic, and kudos to you for buying it. I was thinking about popping on this one myself ... just spent too much time trying to identify it first. Did you find any confirmation of it being Mose...
