It matches your nails! I would guess Nazeing from the 'eyes', but I could be wrong

The nail's are the dafter's, but your right Christine could be Nazeing, looking at the examples on Frank's site the little swirls in the glass are very similar, they remind me of Tadpole's :-\ it's quite heavy 3lb 140z.

Hi Sue, I've changed the title of the thread to try to attract Stephen - hope that's okay! I can't see anything like it in Geoff Timberlake's book, but Stephen will know.

Or..........It might even attract me!!!

This is NOT Nazeing. I rarely state things so categorically, but I believe that on this occasion it is correct to do so.

As many of the GMB readers will know, I do not believe that one characteristic in/on a piece of glass can be used to identify it - you need at least three.

The shape of this vase, its colour and the base finish, which shows that the piece was blown into a mould and, it would appear, has a cut top, all suggest that it is not Nazeing. Whilst items produced by Nazeing can be blown into a mould, these have known shapes.

My vote is that this is far younger , and may even have eminated from the emporium of T K Maxx. Certainly I used a beaker/tumbler/bucket form vase, in a recent talk about Nazeing, as a good example of mistaken identity. I bought it 18 months ago at T K Maxx with a Murano label on. It does not resemble the vase we are dicussing, but is just used as an example of how things can get mistaken. I bought it as a reference piece in order to avoid making mistakes in my quest to document Nazeing shapes and colours, which iI have been doing for longer than I have been dealing (I'm now in my 22nd year).

Sorry, but I think it's back to the drawing board!!

Nigel
