Max, well-found - now if I can just remember my darned Yahoo User ID... :oops:
Pamela, many thanks for this
Now I have a possible name this does give me some leads, which I'll follow through. In the meantime I did find this:http://www.erfurt-antik.de/wwwroot/cat_glas_art_deco_1920-1940_9.html
... which shows a "Vase Moser um 1920, Alexandrit Glas, ..."
... where another is listed.
My only query is the shape that, to my untrained eye, does look more like 1950/60s Murano (but I don't think is). So do you know how long Moser were using Alexandrit(e)? Reading '20th Century Factory Glass
' by Lesley Jackson, it seems to indicate they were still experimenting with new colours inthe early 1930s, but I'm not sure if this continued into the 40s.
