Hi Pip your pieces of I.O.W are gorgeous. I have just purchased a piece of glass from I.O.W and I love it, Ron Wheeler packed it up for me and it arrived safe and sound here in the Algarve Portugal. It is very impressive at 38cm tall and weighs a ton lol.Isle of Wight Studio Glass Underc10Isle of Wight Studio Glass Underc11

Isle of Wight Studio Glass Empty Isle of Wight glass - perfume bottles

Post by NaomiM June 16th 2012, 10:01 pm

My little IoW perfume bottle, from a local charity shop.

Greenberry, from their Summer Fruits collection:

Isle of Wight Studio Glass Dscn0110

And one from their Victorian range: (another charity shop find).

What I really want, though, is an IoW Aurene vase - a cheap one.

is it possible to date this tortoiseshell bowl?
1970s but are there models which can be identified by year if looking at the form?

The flame pontil mark dates it 1974-79, while the label dates it to late 1970s, so probably 1978-79, although I have seen bowls with that shape (but different colour) listed as mid 70s, so on shape alone, no, I don't think you can narrow down the date.

The shape is sometimes called Elephant foot (slight bulge towards base), quite subtle and very nice. Aurene can be found in this shape but I can not remember seeing any other colours.

One addition re dating, Tortoiseshell was made until 1982 and these later items would still have had a flame mark applied even though the flame mark was not used on other ranges. Would agree with late(ish) seventies for this one though.

In the past I wondered if you could attempt to date Tortoiseshell from the variation in the colours used, some times the browns are darker and the yellows creamier. I gave up on that notion...

IoW glass did do a zig zag pattern, as well as Mdina or Matarfa, but I haven't seen any with a collar round the rim and button on the pontil.

D'oh. I've seen Jazz. It was the collar that made me dismiss it.  Doh!

Quite a departure from the Studio's reliance on flower inspired designs, it is called Jazz after all, no wonder there was some variation and improvisation...

Isle of Wight Studio Glass Empty Unusual Mid 1970's Isle of Wight Pen Holder Paperweight

Post by RVsaid October 8th 2014, 9:21 am

Hi Chaps

I understand these paper labels were used in the mid 1970's. A little pen holding paperweight about 6 cm high, 5.5 cm wide and 4 cm front to back.

Yes mid to late 70s I expect, the exact dates were not recorded so there is a bit of guesswork involved. There is a similar label which just says Hand made Isle of Wight, it is assumed that that one is a bit earlier, perhaps 1973 and maybe 74.

The colours used in these blocks were varied and do not conform to the 'standard ranges' like tortoiseshell or pink and blue swirls. The same is true of the lollipop vases and paperweights made around the same time.

This lollipop looks to have a similar mix of colours: https://picasaweb.google.com/Johnmj100/IsleOfWightStudioGlass#5433683056734842482
