    vetraio50
    (711 items)

    Yesterday was the first Saturday of the Month Market at Surry Hills here in Sydney. I got there late just wanting to say hello and Happy New Year to the people I know there ...... but arrived home with two items !!!!!

    This is a piece of glass that I could not resist at the price.

    It is large.

    13.5" or 35 cm across.
    3.7" or 7 cm high.

    A nicely ground and polished pontil.
    No signature at all.

    Quite hefty ..... 66 oz or 1.87 kg

    I don't think it is WMF or one of the Scottish factories.

    It has been suggested that it is similar to the Isle of Wight chargers.

    I'm open to comments from the CW crowd.

      Colours are gorgeous, as you say a bit WMF, but a modern shape. I know you have probably been down the Australian path. It's an accomplished piece....why don't they sign it?! Great buy Kevin.

      My guess.....newer Murano Glass. My lawyer office had some New glass plates/charger (as Art in stands) like this from Italy. They had labels on them -- just newer art glass for decor

      So that is where I would lean towards ........but still a ??

      Hi ALAN ..... I taught French here in Australia for 35 years in High School.
    32. Alan2310 Alan2310, 5 years ago
      I want to ask you a question, when we talk about the pontil, it is the piece where they cut the Glass, ??after the blowing ??
      I just start glass collecting, so i ask stupid question. :(
    33. vetraio50 vetraio50, 5 years ago
      That's it!

      Le pontil in French is the ' la canne du verrier'.

      The pontil mark or 'punty' is the mark left when the pontil is removed from the object created. It can be left as a rough mark on the piece or it can be ground off and then polished in some cases.

      'Belle trace du pontil'
      'trace du pontil arasé'

      "Trace de pontil

      Dans nos descriptions nous utilisons souvent la locution “belle trace de pontil” pour désigner une trace placée généralement sous le verre ou l’objet en verre et provenant de sa fabrication.
      Le pontil est une canne de verrier pleine, servant à prendre un objet en verre après soufflage, par le côté opposé à l’ouverture de soufflage. Cette prise se fait par collage d’un petit morceau de verre chaud et permet ensuite de retravailler l’objet pour évaser son ouverture par exemple. Après finition, l’objet est séparé du pontil par un petit coup sec qui laisse une trace de brisure sur le fond extérieur. Cette trace est ensuite souvent abrasée. Cette trace est la marque de la fabrication artisanale à la canne de verrier."
