I have just come across and bought a lovely heavy vase with two children playing ball engraved on the front.
On the base it is etched "afors GH 946: 1 9 (or I G) E Gordon"http://tinypic.com/72809g.jpg
The name E Gordon dosen't sound particually Swedish so who is, or was ,this person? I don't know an awful lot about Afors (surprise surprise
:oops: ) so I don't know if I got a bargain or not, but to be honest I like this so I don't mind too much
BTW There was also a purple vase with a gold band of figures around the base very similar to Moser of the 1920's but this has "Walther" and another number I can't remember impressed on the base. Would this have been a modern piece or a true Deco one? I know Walther made alot of Deco frog figures and bowls but had no idea they copied Moser.
Should I send my OH back for it :wink:
