Bag vase

Here is a juxtaposition of two bag vases. The slender one on the left is the item at question; the one on the right just to illustrate the difference with the Rune Strand bag vases for Sea Glasbruk.

If you have seen this design before, please let me know.

Hi Ivo,
it looks a bit like the Ravenhead vase, sometimes mistaken for Whitefriars.

Andy, for more examples of the Ravenhead ones see also here:,5227.0.html - I don't think they did the waisted ones though.
