Antiques mysteries 1 glass, 2 armorial dishes

BulbasaurFebruary 28, 2012

Hello fellow antique lovers,

I would be very grateful if you could help me with a mystery or 2. I purchased a pair of antique gold gilted green glasses from an estate auction a while ago. Some of the glass being sold was Moser some Loetz I did not get any paperwork with mine. Does anyone know who might have made these and if they might be worth anything?

[URL=][IMG][/IMG][/URL]Similarly I purchased a couple of small armorial nut dishes, they were sold to me as Samson but I am unsure the mark is Samson it is kind of like a 96 back to back. Does anyone have any thoughts on these? Marker, age, value?

Bigger dish/ platter has Dove design.


Smaller plate has bird? and griffin?

Thank you for your help.

If you copy the 3rd line in the code on photobucket and paste it, the picture will appear in your message.
I would say your glasses are "moser-esque". Probably no provenance.....but they sure look good to me!

Thankyou and Thankyou Linda c, Thanks for the info regarding posting pictures and thanks also for your info regarding the glasses. Unfortunately one has some rub to the gold rings on the base but they are such a nice shade of green. I think I will try to establish their value and if the 2 of them are worth over 50$ excellent and if they are worth under 50$ I think I will start using them to drink from. Either way works for me :)
2nd time lucky hopefully for the Samson? Armorial Dove platter

and nut dish

yes that is a Samson dish. I have the exact one with the same mark. remember that Samson made reproductions of other very much older items, and the fact that he was so good at it is why his pieces command a high price. you can expect different marks but it should have a printed france on that dish in red or green. hope this helps
