Mid Century Vase with Prunts
« on: June 22, 2007, 12:53:57 PM »
I seem to be striking out on ids lately, not even getting guesses, but maybe this one will have a happier ending.  The glass is a fairly light smoke color with a slightly greenish cast.  The coloring reminds me of some WMF, so that's one possibility.  Someone else suggested a Goran Warff design for Pukeburg, but there's no hard evidence for either thought.

The pontil is fully polished.
Thanks.

Hi Forrest long time no see.
I cannot offer a 100% certain attribution - but I see parallels to these crystal tumblers from Peill & Pützler designed by Wolfgang von Wersin:

Ivo,

I agree that there are similarities, although not quite enough to be sure if it's the same design or one copying the other.  It does tend to strengthen the likelihood of it being German.

I'm going to post a couple of other problematic items as well.

Thanks as always.
Forrest
