Vasart Shape V034 or Perthshire Paperweights/Chic Young?
« on: April 15, 2008, 07:49:57 PM »
Hiya,
I checked your site Frank & this vase seems to match up with shape V034 in the Vasart catalogues. But I'm not sure. It's about 5.5" tall x 2 and 1/4" across the mouth. Theres a lot of swirls & whorls and little canes are quite evident so I searched a bit more and came across Glasshounds site and the Chic Young Cylinder vase.The colours in mine seem very similar.There's no P mark on the base and its a glossy finish;nothings been ground away.
Any help / info appreciated  :)
Many thanks
Elaine
