Blue Engraved vase
« on: March 19, 2008, 05:44:58 PM »
Hi
    could some one tell me if they have seen this engraved vase about, or whom made it please, it stands 9.5ins quite thick about 1/4inc the circles are smooth to the touch so must have been polished after being engraved on to the glass, the pattern on the side is also n the base, should this tell me something? this is one of two large blue vase's i bought today,

This is cased glass, cut-to-clear, and much of it is made in Bohemia I believe. One of the big producers of this style of glass is Egermann, which is a good starting point to check out: http://www.egermann.cz/?go=products&lang=en

I don't think this is Egermann.  Most of their cut-to-clear is stained, not cased, and it's not really typical of their designs.  There's a lot of cut-to-clear glass made in Poland and Romania as well as Czechoslovakia.  BTW, this isn't engraved, it's miter or "rich" cut.
