I need some help with the identity to:

B - White orchid vase with pink inner glass, air bobbles and up driven Hight  29 cm diameter 9 cm
http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/displayimage.php?pos=-8493

C - Red orchid vase with white stripes Hight 26.5 cm diameter 8 cm

D - Clear orchid vase with black inner glass and white stripes Hight 43.5 cm diameter 9.5 cm

The red decanter is most likely Empoli, Italy.

Ah, found a thread with a similar shaped vase/stopperless decanter, where its origins are discussed:

http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,16054.msg94282.html#msg94282

I remember the days when I used to buy mystery items as well as Holmegaard - but unfortunately I have neither the space nor the money these days. *sigh* It does take some of the fun from glass buying, I have to say.

Yes, thats the funny part, but it takes a lot of time to identify them and I have stopped doing it, there it way too much really lovely glass items out there, but sometimes the buy gene takes control  ;D over mind and economy and when that happens I mostly end up with a loss  :cry:

But with the name and link you have provided, maybe this will be a WIN situation  :chky:

Thank you very much.

You got here before me, Christine!

I have a vase exactly the same as the one you describe as pink inside, except mine's clear inside and it does not stand on a base, but is shaped exactly like the red with white stripes one.

From this, I would suspect very strongly/conclude they are the same maker.

I had always suspected Aseda, but possibly an up-market range?

Leslie Pina and Lorenzo Vigier say in Scandinavian Glass 1930-2000, Fire & Sea, p117, that "many Swedish companies used this pinstripe technique in the 1950s and 1960s." To paraphrase, Kosta (signed), Sea Gasbruk (sometimes signed), Glimma Glasbruk, Smalandshyttan, Skruf and Johansfors are some of the contenders, many of whom only used labels.

Thanks you very much for all the good help.

I certainly will start my search at Empoli for decanter and Aseda and Swedish glassworks for vasses and hopefully locate them there.

I can ad that none has signature or mark. I have bought them in the same local auction lot in Denmark, so the items i from the same household in the area close to Sweden, where many do hold there summer hollidays in Sweden.
I can not recall ever seen something like them for sale i DK shops at all, so I think all 4 items must have been brought home from Hollidays or as gifts from someone.

Thank you very much all for all the good hints - Gone hunting  :D
