Purple vase need help with ID, please.
« on: May 09, 2008, 08:35:19 PM »
Hello & Evening.
                        As you can see i am back on line and yes you have guessed right i have been to the local charity shop by my new address.

While there i picked up 3 pieces of glass, this vase and a large carnival bowl, also a clear decanter, which i will post asap.
Back to the vase it is purple in colour or amethyst ? it tapers from mid waist down to a clear base which is polished pontil, the vase stands 8.5incs high i was thinking it may be Swedish origin or maybe polish not sure, can any one help please.
                                                                                                                                         Steve.

PS. havestill not unpacked all the pther glass before the big car boot blow out  ;D

Leonardo (Glaskoch, Germany) had these produced in Poland.

It is definitely recent to very recent, but I'm sorry I do not really follow the Leonardo range that closely that I could pinpoint a year to it.
