Hi there, I have finally got round to buying some more glass - and I find an odd one
Stickered and signed I have an orange vase/bowl c. 12cm high and 15cm across with 6 ruffles - a bit like a handkerchief-type vase. It is nearly opaque at the base and becomes more translucent towards the top. It is cased in clear and has a pontil mark which has been "blunted" while hot. There is a blue trail/stripe on the top rim and three more lower down, and many spots and splotches of colour (yellow, blue, white, orange and red) on the clear casing - I guess it was rolled in bits of coloured glass before being re-heated.
On the base it is signed Faizi Crystal Langkawi
and there is a small clear plastic sticker on the punty mark Faizi Crystal Glass Blowing
over a glass blower in front of a map of Langkawi, and below Langkawi
. Can't find anything about Faizi Crystal on google but did find that Langkawi is off the coast of Malaysia
. I'll try and get photos done tomorrow but has anyone heard of this company or even heard of glass blowing in that part of the world? I would say that it is of good quality and modern. Without the sig./sticker I would have put it down as modern Murano.
