Very Thick Crystal Vase - Any thoughts?
« on: February 06, 2008, 09:37:37 PM »
Hi everyone!
Just got in this vase, which was part of a larger lot of glass I bought.
It is very thick and large, and looks very old from the amount of wear on the polished vase.
It does have damages and water deposits on it.
Any ideas of the maker?

Thanks!

Hi Javier,
a good chance its Stromberg or Strombergshyttan,(Swedish) have a google about, or search on ebay,
theres quite a few similar examples.

Hi Andy,
Thanks for the info.
I'll do some research on it.
Do they have the squared facet sides too?
Maybe I should post a pic from the top so that hows better.

That base makes me wonder if it's Czech. It was a very nice piece  :cry:
