Hi Marcus

Thanks for taking the time to look at this. Pb certainly and good quality. Now I know these terms can be subjective; but I note a 'dark' tone to the metal with a very slight 'yellowish' tinge. No bubbles; seeds or other inclusions. Good quality but not brilliant 'white'; if that makes sense. As you have noted; the vase is super quality. No over-cuts or other inaccuracies; the cut surfaces are polished well and the etching is crisp. A quality product and no doubt from a good producer. Thanks for your time.

Cheers. Trev.

The reason for asking is if this is definitely PbO, then the engravers I have in mind are unlikely. Therefore, my advice would be to contact the Ruckl company at Nizbor, Cz, who have an archive. This  would be your quickest route to getting a response, and they generally respond within a week. Had you said not PbO, then I'd have looked at Moser.
Regards,
Marcus

Thanks for that Marcus. Having read your message and had a look around; Ruckl does seem likely, though I would have struggled to get to that conclusion alone. I'll contact them and see what they come up with and update when they do. The trail seems to be getting narrower ;D

Thanks a lot and all the best. Trev.

Hi Andy,
I had discounted Moser, as they have never made lead crystal glass, and Trev seems very sure that his item is lead crystal, hence my suggestion that he contact Ruckl at Nizbor.
Regards,
Marcus

Thanks Marcus,
I just found the Moser website quite amazing, and some of the engravings after all sorts
of Artists very impressive!
Regards Andy :)

(ps Marcus what do you think of my (families) Iris vase, and this Nicotine thing?)

Hi Andy and Marcus

Thanks for your continued interest in this and your comment. I had a look on the Moser website Andy and as you say; very impressive, however it would appear that thier artwork on vases is wheel engraved and the artwork on my vase is acid etched. They no doubt use both techniques; though I didnt notice any acid etched vases when I looked at the site. I'm still pending a reply from Ruckl and will update when it appears.

Sorry for the delayed response btw guys; a headless chicken week, racing around the country and now just catching up!

Cheers. Trev.
