Two blue vases - Czech?
« on: May 30, 2007, 02:50:35 PM »
Any thoughts on what these two vases might be would be really appreciated. ;D

#1. Blue vertical ribbed - 5" high.  Round base (gently concave), becoming three-sided at the top.  Initial thoughts - poss. Czech.

#2. Turquoise scallop edged optic vase - alternating clear and stippled diamonds.  6" high. Star cut base (18 points).  Old with lots of wear on base rim.

In that case the scalloped one is British!

Many thanks Maddy and Christine :)  I've had a good look inside the diamond optic - without success.

One down, one to go ;).

Or made for the British market? (Germany/Czecho made TONS of porcelain stuff with English wording...I would presume glass would be the same?)

Or American?

Thank you very much!

No don't think so, the celery mark was used to avoid luxury goods tax on home-produced vases (I need to look up when but post war I think). A celery container (cough cough) being a food container and therefore not luxury goods, I don't think anything stamped celery was actually meant for celery - unlees it was in flower. >:D

Ah.... there you go then.....

cos when its porcelain, and probably as revolting as this one , you definitely reckon you would put celery in it... because you wouldn't want to upset the flowers.... >:D
Thank you very much!

Christine

I too always thought 'Celery' meant british made but then I found a  Val St Lambert vase marked 'Celery' too.

Either it applied to imported goods too or
VSL just thought it was a fashion to be followed?

cheers

Maybe it is for storing celery in the fridge. If you kept it in water, it would stay nice and crisp. The ad says it is decorative but not in my life.   ;D  (Of course I mean the one in the ebay ad, not the Czech ones)

The first of these is definitely Czech, VHJ Obal.
The second, I have a feeling I have seen somewhere, and may be German.
