I bought a set of three pieces, this is the most striking in shape. Bottom squared, polished smooth, no marks....

Its a lovely piece..I love those shapes more than geometric square styles...but in looking at that, I saw the Hyacinths which are stunning..is there a post to go with that pic? I would love to try doing that.

go to search and look for "hyacinth" or "bulb vase" - this should give you a fair number of posts on the subject.

No, they were found locally in Leiden. There is one large square dish, a "dog bone" style four lobed vase and the ashtray. All in the same finish and workmanship.
