    I thought I would share my little Queens Burmese Glass Posy vase in Satin made by Thomas Webb and with the design of Forget Me Not (design 3211) by Jules Barbe who work for Webb 1886-1888. The petal top on the posy was a design registered by Webb and I believe the registered number is 80167 registered on the 5/9/1887. The actual design of Forget Me Not is one that is not often come across and I was advised as being quite rare. There is a design with a red flower call Forget Me Not with Butterfly and is quite common but the blue is not. The posy is small 7cm high and 6cm across the petals. It glows beautifully under black light. It does not have the acid stamp on the polished pontil but not all of Webbs work was marked. In all a beautiful little Posy as lovely as the day it was made. The two darker photos are enhanced and the remaining two photos are probably closer to actual colour

      Thanks for sharing your vase. Agreed, this decoration decoration is rarely seen. In our research of Barbe designs we were reluctant to call it "Forget Me Not" because the more common red color of the blossoms. With your permission, I would like to add your photo to my our website as an example. As of now, we only have one other example with blue flowers. The website is :

      I have a Thomas Webb but not sure if it his sons can see it in my photos...
      Yours is very lovely. Would you not say it was Peach Blown?
    10. Ladysalt Ladysalt, 9 years ago
      Hello Anne,
      Peachblow is a term more often associated with American Glass. Webb learnt the process in America and when he started producing it back in England It was named
      Queens Burmese ware as the queen likened the glass to a Burmese Sunset.
      Jules Barbe came to work at the Dennis Glassworks in 1879. He was a designer and artist . No relation to the Webb family. The glass works were started by John Webb in the 1830's then Thomas Webb 1804 -1869 and then his sons Thomas 2nd, Charles and Walter.
