Tall amber optic ribbed vase with pontil mark
« on: September 06, 2008, 02:32:48 PM »
Can anyone identify this one for me please? Nicely made, not too heavy, with a small polished pontil, optic ribbed - the ribs have a slight spiral to the left (anti-clockwise), polished top rim, nice quality. Height: 8" / 200mm   Diameter at top:  4" / 100mm   Diameter at base:   3" / 75mm  Weight: 533g / 18.80 oz.

I have a feeling that it may be by Royal Brierley as I recently saw a marked piece with similar vertical ribbing. Hopefully someone with more knowledge in this area will be able to add more.

Thanks Steven, that gives me a direction to explore.  If it helps at all, my dearly beloved has counted the ribs for me and says there are 20 of them. (I counted and as usual got a different result each time I counted! ::)

That's a pretty vase!  Looks so light and delicate.

Thanks Kristi, it's not as light and delicate as it looks. When I first saw it I thought as you did, then picked it up and realised it's thicker than it looks from the photos. It does look fab with the light through it though.
