Continental Glass Continental Glass 18th century continental wine glasses are much undervalued. We have mentioned previously the almost myopic bias of some collectors towards English manufactured Georgian glass and specifically drinking glasses. We wish to re-address this and bring Dutch, Bohemian, German, Belgian and obviously Venetian and others into their rightful place as items to be held in the highest regard.

Production suffered with the Napoleonic wars but there was resurgence in the late 18th century with the development of their own flint and lead glass and extensive use of the highest quality engraving. Sang was a German, the early engravers to appear in England were predominantly his compatriots and Bohemians. The Namur Museum in Belgium has the most stunning collection of early Belgian and Dutch glass dating back to the 13th century.

Some early footed beakers and very light wine glasses in the facon venise are stunning, extremely rare and beyond reach for all but those collectors with the deepest pockets. Early berkmeyer, beakers, koolstronk and roemers do appear on the market from time to time. The engravings go from the sublime and complex to delicate and ethereal, particularly early diamond point. This was not matched for pulchritude by English engravers and cutters until the middle of the 19th century, when James Green and Nephew and Thomas Webb mastered the craft.

Beautifully enamelled Bavarian and Saxon beakers from the late 16th century are museum pieces, and we must acknowledge the fact that they were producing cobalt blue glass before it appeared in Bristol.

By Mary Barile Antique Appraiser Franklin Mint Museum The Franklin Mint was founded in the mid s to produce collectibles such as silver ingots, dolls, china plates and die-cast models. The Mint marketed their products as investments which the buyer could enjoy over time as the value of the object increased. But unfortunately, the values did not increase for all items and today, establishing a value for Franklin Mint items can be tricky.

Segel who was one of the earliest entrepreneurs in collectibles. He set the tone for later companies to create a collecting niche and then fill it. The Franklin Mint was a private mint, not a Federal Government entity. The company advertised in many magazines for the general public, indicating that the objects for sale were being made in “limited” quantities, and that once the run was completed the molds would be destroyed, guaranteeing the buyer a collectible.

The problem was that the production runs were not really limited at all, since thousands of plates or coins or dolls were made during each run. Although the company still exists in name, the Franklin Mint’s heyday of production is over, and the prices of most items sold by them over the years have dropped below original retail cost. Among the collectibles available on the secondary market today are: Other dolls focused on heroines of the silver screen, including Marilyn Monroe in “Gentlemen Prefer Blonds.

Collectible Plates Franklin Mint collectible plates were decorated with all subjects, from the American Revolution to reproductions of Norman Rockwell paintings. Ceramics Ceramics included bisque unglazed porcelain statues of wildlife, birds and flowers.
