Could it be Exbor?

Hello Marcus, Ivo and Frank et.al.,
Apologies for the delay in getting these pictures of the base here - I managed to disconnect the internet while doing them, and had to wait until my better half fixed it! There is NO mark on the base.

Hope this helps! Thanks, Sue

Thanks for your suggestions, Ivo, sorry. Asteroid would, to me anyway, appear to be a very suitable name for this piece!  :D Cheers, Sue
PS, I've just read Bernard's bit on location. I bought this in a "retro" shop in Dundee, about 4 years ago. TTFN, Sue.
Cheers, Sue (M)

:D Hope nobody minds me doing the "bump", but if Marcus is back (and his chicks are okay, which I very much hope they are) I'd like to ask , Marcus if you agree with Ivo's suggestion that this might be an Asteroid vase? Cheers, Sue

Stylistically similar, as Ivo observes. To my eye, "Asteroid" is much more regular in the distribution of bubbles/inclusions. I have reservations, as I understood "Asteroid" to have either painted or other-wise coloured bubbles/inclusions. However, that is not to say, that at some stage, "Asteroid" was not being produced undecorated. As I understand it, ZABK Glass as it now is, are still producing "Asteroid", but no piece of identical form, at this time, and all coloured.

Here's the homepage of ZABK Glass http://www.zabkglas.com.pl

and for Asteroid:

Marcus

:roll: Thanks for this everybody. Having looked at these pictures, I don't think this is my vase. I think I've seen these in charity shops, so I know what they're like. The surface texture is not at all the same, mine is much finer, and on mine, the big "bubbles" are indented and oval, while the little "bubbles" are round and stick out. It's a mystery! I still like it a lot. :D
 :D I'm very glad to hear the chicks are thriving! :D  Cheers, Sue.

Their historical collection is intriguing, are these reproductions of their own early products or someone elses?

I found the same "Asteroid" like decoration on glass building bricks in the DIY store today - and most glass building blocks nowadays are produced by Vitrablock in Duchcov, Czech Republic.

:D:shock::D

This is all going back a very long way!
We've got a camera, 8)  but I have to learn how to use it, and at the moment, I think I need supervision with anything that involves co-ordination. I will repost pics very soon.

When I was in Poland last November, I saw a vase the same as mine.  :shock:  It was in the window of a cafe, holding red and white roses and the Polish flag, all wrapped in red and white ribbons. Michael was stunned with disbelief when I did a double-take to rush back to check on it, having caught it in the corner of my eye as we passed.
