Straw Silk Glass Vase

Post by potterymad62 on January 23rd 2017, 8:16 pm

Kind help please with this silkstraw coated glass vase. It has a mark on the base, but cannot read the signature and it starts with what looks like a C or L. I don't think it's by Keir or Johnson, think it's much earlier period. Just hoping someone here maybe able to help me with identifying the vase and mark.

Thanks

Ernest

There's one the same shape on Karen Keir's webpage. May be best to ask her.

Hi NaomiM. Keir only puts paper string labels around/on her wares and does not sign the base with incised signature. Margaret Johnson is another glass maker who makes this design. I contacted her a couple years ago and it's not hers, she also use paper labels only, and not sign the base.

I do believe it's much earlier and possibly early/mid 20th century. I have traced this design and idea from around the late 1890s onwards. Will research further. The mark is hard to read and defiantly begins with a capital C.

Thanks again for the reply and feedback NaomiM, much appreciated.

Very interesting NaomiH. Will have a search on Scottish glass and see what I can find and see if it throws something on the makers marks. Thanks Ern.
