Ravenhead... mid-late 1970s, I think.

Ravenhead - Lancashire Empty Icy textured Bowl - Ravenhead, Topaz

Post by emmysparrow Wed 16 Feb - 16:53

Hi!
I have come across this beautiful heavy crystal bowl... it reminds me of Tapio Wirkkala's pieces for Iittala.. but I cannot find any pieces like it in my references.
It measures 21.4cm across & has matching smaller bowls... thanks to anyone who can help ID it!

I have one too. It is one absolutely gorgeous bowl. I've been wondering where it came from but not got round to checking it out. I did wonder if they could be a newer production maybe, but it's a fabulous piece of glass.
Interested to see if anyone comes up with anything on it.

Definately Ravenhead, Topaz pattern. Designed by John Clappison I think.

Ravenhead - Lancashire Empty Anyone recognise these - Ravenhead Nevada

Post by jojojosie20 Wed 3 Apr - 6:02

Sunday was the first in the spring season of car boots. Early Sundays not a favourite but the early bird catches the worm.

Picked up 3 of these glasses for a bargain 50p each (didnt even haggle which could be a first). I believe they may be whitefriars but struggling to get a confirmed identity.

Won't be selling these as they have just become my favourite G & T glasses  Ravenhead - Lancashire 910958

Ravenhead - Lancashire Empty Ravenhead Flair cactus glass vase

Post by lindylou08 Sat 3 Aug - 9:01

Hi
I was sure this vase is by Dartington but I've searched but can't find it.  Someone on here , I'm sure, will be able to identify it easily and its approximate age. Not even sure if its a vase or a candle holder - 18cm high.

Ravenhead - Lancashire Dscn4213


Not a brilliant photo but such a distinctive form, I'm sure it's easily recognisable .
Thanks for looking

I have one. It's called a 'cactus vase'. I've seen it attributed to both Ravenhead and Dartington glass. Until I see a box with a manufacturers name and picture of the vase I'm not going to say its one or t'other.

I found a couple on Ebay stating they were Ravenhead, pattern name 'Flair', Late 70s early 80s and designed by Alexander Hardie Williamson.
Also here is a link
http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,22282.0.html
 If you read through the replies the question arises as to whether its Lasisepat and if you do a Google image search up it comes !! Wah

I just found a Ravenhead Flair bowl this week. After the same confusion - Ravenhead, Dartington, Lasisepat? - I found an eBay seller with one and the original box was also in the listing. It has two 'layers' of petals around the edge. I started a Ravenhead thread in the British glass area.

Hi
Could you post an image of your bowl/vase please. Mine doesn't have 'two layers of petals', a single layer but in groups of three of differing heights. I'd like to compare them.

Thanks for your interest, it surprises me they are not more in demand - great shape AND vintage !! ( if it turns out they were produced in the 70s)

Although I don't have much interest in glass these days the confusion might be caused by the fact that there are a number of very similar designs around which were more than likely produced by different manufacturers.

When I saw the thumbnail above I thought that it was a design that I was familiar with but expanding it showed that it was different, although similar.
