Huge Italian? Triple cased vase
« on: November 21, 2005, 11:34:16 AM »
I was just putting something away in the shed, when this caught my eye.  I've had it for about 2 years.  It measures an enormous 16" in height, and I haven't seen one the same since.  I'm thinking about selling it.

I particularly love the sliced top, showing three casings.  :)   To my eye, it looks Italian, but I really don't know.  Any ideas?

I have something with what looks like the same kind of casing.
Vase
It's bright orange on the inside, white and then clear on the outside.

I first thought my vase was Italian as it has that bright orange but I think Anne E. B suggested that it might be Polish.

lol Frank, as I had a thunderous 'no answer' on the GMB, I guessed it wasn't up to much and left it in the shed...where it still is.

I'll get Peter to have a look at it next week, and caste his expert eye over it.  8)  :D

PS:  Sorry TC, I can't help with your version.  :(

with the charateristics of yours, so it looks like Anne E. B's. suggestions could be spot on.
Enjoying being in the Midlands.......some people are just amazing....

Oops, I was not trying to get my vase identified (very kind of you to try, thanks), I was merely suggesting that your vase could be Polish as it has the same casing as mine.

When I post any pictures of my glass in a topic that isn't mine I'm only trying to help the attribution of the others poster piece. Please forgive me if it looks as though I'm doing otherwise.  :oops:

Oh, thanks Deltab.  :D

Nothing to forgive old bean!  :wink:  :D

I don't thiiiink mine's Polish.  It's got quite a lot of base wear...and it just doesn't feel Polish.

Did I tell you I could divine the origins of glass by 'feel' alone?  :wink:  :shock:
