Hi, another one I bought last week - I've been looking through my books during the week and haven't got anywhere yet :-\.

It is 24.5cm high, 9cm across the top.  Not cased - soda glass?  Fair amount of wear on the base which has not been ground or polished.  The top rim is neatly polished, the glass looks good quality with a few air bubbles (which tend to be tear-shaped if that helps).

It seems a familiar shape but I just can't find it anywhere....

I started with Carnival glass, then other C20 irridescent, then Whitefriars ducks, then Dartington FT Daisies etc, then Whitefriars Tricorns...when will it end?

No idea who made it, but there's one of these in ruby red sat in a local charity shop.

The quality of the red vase I've seen doesn't really seem to match the Riihimaen glass I have.

Could be Chinese, but my first thought was European.

Well I'd say that mine is better than my cased Riihimaen vases (only got 3 though), especially the finishing of the rim.  The Riihimaen ones are quite sharp edged while this vase is very smooth.

I have this one (similar ribbing, different shape) which did have a Friedrich label on it. Not sure where it went though, 'cos it has disappeared (probably up the vacumn cleaner).
Enjoying being in the Midlands.......some people are just amazing....

Thanks folks - I've been googling FRIEDRICH KRISTALL and versions of it, and not finding a lot :-\.  But I did find a page http://www.glaskilian.de/Friedrich.507.0.html which has an orange and a blue vase with similar ribs, although a lot look cased.  Anyone got any better links? 

Kev, if you happen to find your vase - any chance of a pic?

cheers
