iittala vase or not? - ID = Aseda, Sweden
« on: June 25, 2008, 06:12:50 PM »
Probably one for pinkspoons.  This vase is 25.5cms high. Followed some of the threads about similar vases such as M and S Chinese but quite old now so couldn't see the pictures.  This one has a hole in the bottom if that's any help! Oooooh Errr  :o

Hi Gill,
Your vase is by Aseda, Sweden, and designed by Bo Borgstrom

If I know, I'll comment. If I think I know, I'll have a go. If I have no idea, I'll just keep quiet and learn from others, so the next time I'll know.

Thankyou Della, you were quick on the draw. That's really good news, I like Aseda and have a vase collectioin of their famous bubble bud vases.  Started thinking iittala because all the vases I looked at with a single bubble in the base seemed to be described as iittala, probably means a few of those were wrongly attributed.  Cheers, Gill ;D

By the way, just noticed spelling mistake, I meant VAST collection, not vase collection, although it's that as well of course.
