    I bought this today at a local thrift shop. I LOVE it. I don't know a thing about it other than it has the same weight and consistency as green malachite glass covered dishes of the same dimensions.

    Any information is greatly appreciated.

      It's beautiful. You were really lucky!
    2. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 6 years ago
      @just_a_random_guy - thanks! I walked by a table, saw it, grabbed it and ran! LOL I have had the vintage green malachite glass covered jars designed by Kurt Schlesinger, and this is exactly the same but different (lol) . I tried a google image search and came up empty. I would love to know from where this originated.

      Thanks, but it doesn't really solve the issue if these are newer copies or originals.

      TubeAmp, you rock! Thanks.

      vetrai50 I posted a photo of the bottom . Yes, there are very small seam marks but these marks are vertical on the figures themselves and not on the edges of the glass.

      I am sure this is a repro of the original 1930s green malachite jar. I will look further to see if I can find out about this shell pink colored one. Maybe one of you can unearth something, as well.

      I posted a photo of the bottom. I had no idea these were made in this delicate pink color. I had two of the green malachite jars with the standard flower decorations. I paid only $2.00 for this one!

      Malachite glass is also called slag glass.

      I am not an expert on this specific type of glass but I believe this to be the real thing as in the link to "mine". However, while this was produced in other variations including blue and black glass, white or ivory (with a pink tint as in yours) seems to be quite unusual or at least quite a small production. I will leave the verdict of "unique" to be bestowed on your piece by others that are more knowledgeable about this specific production. I think the intent was to imitate natural stone such as the malachite which was done quite well with a combination of opaque, translucent and transparent glass, quite amazing craftsmanship and glass making skill!

      (As a side note/tip, I often check the very bottom or "foot" of an item, with high magnification, to see the amount of wear to the item to give you a rough idea of its age. This isn't a definite test but often is a great indicator ;-)

      Also these appear to be manufactured by being cast and then at least partially polished. I have seen many of these powder jars with a subtle variety of finishes to the surface of the glass itself, particularly the top.
    12. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 6 years ago
      @agardenofdreams - there is no wear visible or to be felt on the bottom, which tells me it was either very carefully looked after and only used for display or it just got off the boat from China ( haha). The glaze is perfect. In fact, I'd call it mint condition. I think it was part of someone's glass or trinket box collection which ended up in the local thrift shop. I really wish I could find one in this same pinky/ivory color. Makes me crazy when I research a piece and can't find bupkus.
    13. agardenofdreams agardenofdreams, 6 years ago
      I know what you mean!....
      I realize that I should not be promoting other sources on here but if you look at mine and then do further research for similar items, particularly the malachite glass items like ours you may find others that are specializing in that type of Czech glass and they may help you!!
    14. agardenofdreams agardenofdreams, 6 years ago
      btw mine is very "glossy" too though it has some sharp(ish) edges from the mold on the interior inside rim, etc.... I just don't see this type of sophisticated glass work coming out of China but I certainly could be wrong!!
    15. agardenofdreams agardenofdreams, 6 years ago
      sorry, just another thought- if indeed it is a new(er) repro being produced in China or elsewhere (presumably in quantities).... wouldn't it be showing up in current searches????
    16. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 6 years ago
      @agardeonofdreams - I was just being silly when I said it was right off the boat from China. The figure molding is just like the molding on the green Czech glass - right down to the translucent boobies. :) I am doing a search and will send some emails out.

      re: " Makes me crazy when I research a piece and can't find bupkus."

      Welcome to my world. I look for everything. I used to look at a dozen sites a day. Good meds have helped a little, though. Now, I only come here ;-)
