Be patient with me - I still want to try and clear up any misunderstandings re press and blow (and blow and blow if you want) but meanwhile, Peter, where please did I talk about "hard molding"?  The expression means nothing to me and I can't imagine a typo which would have produced this.

Sorry but I think the whole thread becomes pointless when we cannot see what we are talking about

I don't trust anything but my own server now

To avoid confusion, I presume this is the vase being talked about?

(I've posted this in another thread where I've asked about my own similar vase - I thought it would be prudent to also post this new information in this thread).

Aha - now we might have an answer - this has just come up for sale on eBay ...

CLICK HERE

with an Oberglas, Austria sticker on it - so assuming the sticker is kosher is it now safe to assume that Anne's two vases and my dumpier one are Oberglas?

Just for the record - there's been several on the market with Oberglas stickers since then, but here's one in a presumably original box on sale on an Austrian site:
https://www.willhaben.at/iad/kaufen-und-verkaufen/antiquitaeten-sammlungen-kunst/oberglas-vase-gloria-70er-jahre-128796985/

So the name of this design would be "Gloria" !
