Orrefors?
« on: March 08, 2007, 11:49:33 AM »
Hi,

Could somebody help me with the ID of this vase? I suppose it's Scandinavian, probably Orrefors (?) but I can't find any similar example/picture.

Thanks,

Link to image: Marktplaats.nl

Mod: photo altered to original online link

How is the base? any pontil? polished? Obviously no markings :-\

All Orrefors is signed.
Possibly your vase is Zwiesel.

I'm very sorry Della! I just wanted to know the origin, I'm always very eager to learn. I like this vase but as I said I can't find another example or picture. Will you forgive me? I won't use your picture for any other purpose.

Regards,

Not a problem - judging by the massively long link you would have had problems posting it anyway. I have altered your original post to point directly at the original Marktplaats item.

Often the description of the seller can help when identifying the item as well.

If referring to an item online and you're unable to post the link, please just ask a moderator.

With thanks.
