I've posted photos of a selection of the vases which I have mentioned from time to time (thread on Textured vases with Eye Pattern and elsewhere). These vases have some unique characteristics which leads me to believe they are probably from the same maker. The marigold vases have been found bearing the label OBERGLAS - Austria.
1. Mostly they have interesting and unusual "textures" in the form of the moulded pattern. For example, tree trunk effects, bubbles and bobbles etc.
2. On the ones I have examined, the neck may be ground (might be polished) and there is a narrow band that can also have some sort of pattern within it.
3. The shape of the vases can be straight sided, or "in and out", or with flattened panels. Interesting variety.
4. The base is usually patterned and is not
5. Colours vary - clear glass, two colours (may be stained, not sure of this), and with light (may be cold applied, again I am not sure) iridescence. I have seen marigold, cranberry and green (very lightly) iridised.
Here are some pics - they are not the best and they are not recent. If we get chance to do a new set sometime I will post them, but at least this gives you an idea.Moderator: The links below have been added below and can be seen at the bottom of this page in Glen's posting:http://tinypic.com/6hj0hi.jpg
