An extraordinary collaborative masterwork by Thomas Webb and Sons in partnership
with the periods best glass engraver William Fritsche. Webb and Sons were considered
the best glassmakers of the period and probably the most famous Victorian glasshouse
in England. The firm was known for innovative design and techniques in glassmaking,
particularly in the areas of cameo glass and crystal engraving.
William Fritsche (1853-1924), considered to be one of the finest engravers/cutters of
crystal in the world, worked in the classical style, engraving naturalistic motifs. He
pioneered the style of decoration known as rock-crystal engraving, he was inspired by
17th century Bohemian Hochschnitt high-relief glass decoration. Fritsche, whose work
was exhibited at the 1878 Paris Exposition produced some of the most extraordinary
“carved rock crystal” ever produced.
This incredible punchbowl is truly spectacular, a masterful accomplishment. The artist
decorated the bowl with an outstanding swirling leafy floral pattern. The exquisite detail
featuring a repeating floral design with scrolled and sprig-like leafy devices surrounds
the bowl…the underside of the bowl is also engraved; the scalloped cut-edge rim is
slightly rolled. Resplendent in size and quality, this piece remains in fine original
condition, extremely minor expected wear to underside of base commensurate with use.
This pair of fine and outstanding early green bottle glass candle (hurricane) shades
represents the rarest form in early American glass lighting. Glass hurricane shades
were being produced and advertised for sale by the Philadelphia Glass Works as early
as 1775. Those almost certainly would have been made from clear glass. This pair,
being made from green bottle glass is highly unusual and are the only surviving pair we
are aware of. The top rims of the shades have been rolled, for the bottom, the clever
blower added a bead of glass just above the bottom edge, the same thickness as the
rolled rim, then the bases were ground off up to the bottom of the applied bead, creating
the open bottoms. These were found in an estate liquidation sale in Marbletown, NY
coming out of an 18th century stone colonial home. Blown chestnut flasks in this color
green turn up on occasion in this area of New York State. There was a bottle glass
factory operating in Newburgh, NY in the third quarter of the late 18th century and in our
opinion, it is entirely possible that these shades could have been blown there.
Marbletown is only about 45 miles north of Newburgh. The possible age of these
shades could range from 1750-1830 though we are confident that an 18th date of
manufacture is the most probable. (Height: 16"; base diameter: 6")
This desirable Galle blown-out vase features beautiful and colorful blue hyacinths with brown stems and
leaves on a contrasting frosted yellow background. The flowers and leaves are mold blown in strong
relief. Signed on the side in cameo “Galle”.
The French artist Emile Galle (1846-1904) reached the zenith of his career with his art glass during the
last quarter of the 19th century; he enjoyed great success at the Paris Exhibition of 1878 and again in
1889. He was also at the forefront of the emerging Art Nouveau movement in the late 19th century. He
was best known for naturalism; floral motifs and some of his experimental techniques with metallic foils,
air bubbles etc. In 1901 his crowning achievement was a founder of the Art Nouveau movement known
as de Cove de Nancy, the Nancy School in partnership with Victor Provet, Louis Majorelle,
Anthony Daum and Lucien Vallent. (Excellent condition; height: 12”.)
A rare Stiegel type non-lead sugar bowl blown in the English style with German type
handles; lower handle terminus displaying open scroll tooled outwardly.
This magnificent and fine free-blown covered sugar bowl raised on knopped stem
continuing to circular foot. The inset domed cover features an applied bulbous knop with
finial. Sugars with handles are very rare in any color! While these Stiegel type sugars
were made here and in England, they are tough to attribute one way or the other. What
makes this one so interesting is that unlike all the diamond patterned Stiegel type sugar
bowls, this one is non-lead; this makes the odds of it being English pretty slim. Either
way, it is a fantastic mid-18th century form (Height: 8.5")
This is truly a rare and believed to be a unique Tiffany gold favrile toothpick with pigtail

This early blown wineglass suffered the loss of its foot which was replaced with a silver substitute. The wine itself is a superb example of late seventeenth century blown and engraved glass from Nuremberg. The piece features three hollow knops each separated by three wafers, and a generous bowl engraved with open pit mining scenes. A coat of arms is engraved in the front and is believed to be the arms of one of the Counts of Mansfeld. The foot is hand hammered silver and bears the name Mansfeld and the date 1530. (Also, in tiny font, “A.E. 12”) The foot was likely made during the late 18th or early 19th century. Mansfeld Germany was noted for copper and silver mining for 800 years; Kupferschiefer was the principle mineral; the ore was reached via open mine shafts as depicted on the bowl. This 10.5-inch goblet was likely made to commemorate the successful mining endeavors of one of the Mansfeld families. Fine condition.
