Is this Richardson's yellow?

(1/2) > >>

Busy night tonight. Very educational reading through posts though.

This is tall at 30 cms and 8 wide. The foot was added to the body and is a slightly darker yellow. It is light in weight.

Hi Ruth, The shape is that of the pencil necked vases of Carlo Moretti from 1959 to 1966. These are pictured on pages 46-47 of Pina's book Italian glass century 20. The ones she shows all have clear feet, but I am learning that these must have been popular and came in several colors. so it is possible that this is that, just a variation. Hope this helps. Terry

You're educating me, I think, Terry.  When I saw Ruth's vase, I thought of the ones you put on here a while ago in groups - I do remember correctly, don't I?  I think you've got a similar vase in a soft turquoise?

I think your vase is lovely Ruth, a pretty colour and wonderful restrained shape...mmm.!

Oh Max your memory is fine except no Turquoise, I have two orange and one yellow, all satinzed. Would love to have a blue one and a green one and a red one and I really don't know why these thrill me so, but I just love them, can you tell LOL Terry

Any in Pina in opaque ? Yellow ? ( I dont have my books with me )
Shape is soooooooo Moretti but it''s possible he was copied I suppose.
Richardsons ????????????????
