This elliptic blue decoration is traditionally used in Bavaria and can still be found on recent output.
Unfortunately I don´t know, if it´s exclusive to this region. But I´d agree with Christine, that it
looks fairly modern.

100% Lafiore or Gordiola who both make the same pattern with this decoration. If the pontil looks as if it was finished on a stone, it is Lafiore. If it was snapped off, it would be Gordiola.

The pontil looks like it has been finished with a stone, so Lafiore? Did you visit the factory?

Thanks so much Ivo  :kissy:

Did you visit the factory?

Yes was there over easter, it was an eye opener. They had a strict "no photographs" policy and had no documentation at all - not sure what they were afraid of.  I was amazed to find they did slump glass, and occasional visiting artists to make unica. Nice ones even - but not cheap.
I had to turn over a few dozen pieces in the shop to see the finish - all had the same rough stone finish. I did the same at Gordiola and they use snap off or in some cases raspberry prunts. So Lafiore it is....

Well it was about to go into the car bootie - but I will keep it now. I lived in Mainland Spain for a while so I will keep it as a Spanish momento. I have had a look at their website and seen some of the slump glass - Thanks again Ivo!
