    I just purchased these two Victorian glass pieces. The large on measures almost 10" and the smaller 5". I bought them because I love them but have no idea who made them. Any thoughts?

      The smaller vase is very nice, absolutely terrific colors, and I believe is a lovely example of european victorian glass, the tall footed ewer however is not victorian, although it is from the 50s or 60s, and was produced on the island of murano, where glass was produced to look victorian.

      Thanks so much for the information Shawn.

      I don't know much about Victorian glass :( But I am learning, the one on the left actually looks like Fenton's art glass Crestware from early 1940's right down to the feet (the color in the feet are very close to Colonial Amber) and the blue on the outer time looks like the blue in Fentons crestware. Im not sure about the casing of the dark plum color though. This is one site I go to for color and design for Fenton: http://www.kandmantiques.com/Articles/PatternsDefinitions/FentonPatterns.html
      Unfortunately, it is only showing baskets in the crestware - Good Luck!

      And I guess more like "toed" not "footed" lol
    8. Rick55 Rick55, 6 years ago
      Yes wksgibson, these examples look the same as mine. Thanks for the info.

      Rick55, a thought, have you by any chance put a black light to the smaller white (or even the pink for that matter)? I just happened to see something pretty similar to the smaller one thought to be made by Stevens & Williams, now Royal Brierley Crystal. They used uranium in both the 19th and 20th centuries. They may have begun using it as early as the late 1840s. Also, they used it in PINK and IVORY glass in the 30's they started using it in their ambers (like the color of the toes and handles) and greens. The firm opened in 1851 in the UK The piece I saw that is very similar to yours was also ivory with the toes, it was a Cased vase with an applied acanthus leaf decoration (which is also the amber color) - just a thought, hope it takes you somewhere!
      The more I look through various sites, I think what you have is Victorian, and I believe by the folks I just mentioned, check this out: http://www.20thcenturyglass.com/store/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=91_139
      Please let me know if link works =)
    13. wksgibson wksgibson, 6 years ago
      There is a cruet similar to yours at the bottom of this page (just a different applied pattern) http://highlycollectibleantiques.com/stevens-williams-glass/
