Both of those vases posted are similar pattern :) Just ours (Ed) are round, whereas they are square....so I guess we have French vases  :clap: Would make things so much easier if they were just marked!

Thanks to all the 'terriers' that kept looking :)

Trudy, and all, 2 years on and I've now found one of the same vases as yours and Ed's and it is not the same as the ones Della and Chris showed by Luminarc. Mine is also 22cm tall, weighs 1001g, and has no mark for France anywhere on it.  So whatever they are, they are not the aforementioned Luminarc vases.  :-\

Hi Anne,
I do beg to differ, something I do not often do, but the one I posted a photograph of, an identical, but larger item, as stated, was not marked, only labelled.

Hi Della, I didn't think I said the one you showed was marked?  I said that mine wasn't marked (as per Pip's reply #15 about the marks often being small and hard to find.) 

The one you showed is not the same as the one I have here which matches Trudy's - the base is different as are the panels.

Your base has indented arcs, mine is completely smooth, no arc indented at all.

Your panels are all the same, mine are alternate patterned/plain as Ed described in reply #10 above.

There are similarities between the vases but they are not the same. by any means.

Just to throw something else into the mix. I have a very similar vase marked France and 18 on a bird bath bottom, and it's triangular. Variation by same maker or a popular style adapted by a number of makers?

My guess is variations of a popular style by several makers David. How often do we see that! :)

Finally, we have an answer to the taller thinner vases which Ed and I have in this topic!  :hiclp:

Thanks to Margi who has posted a pic of hers complete with label, we know they are Crystal d'Arques.

See here for pics:
